The Cars' Ric Ocasek And Wife Paulina Porizkova Separate After 28 Years Of Marriage

Ric Ocasek and Paulina Porizkova are over.

On Wednesday, May 2, 2018, the former supermodel and America's Next Top Model judge announced her separation from her The Cars frontman husband. Taking to Instagram, Porizkova, who shares adult sons Jonathan and Oliver with Ocasek, shared, "Our family always has been — and still is — a well-built car. When the four of us are together, we can go wherever the road takes us. But as a bicycle, my husband and I no longer pedal in unison. So, we're ditching the bicycle."

Porizkova continued, "Ric and I have been peacefully separated for the past year. The photos of our happy family are, in fact, happy family photos; we are just no longer a couple." The 53-year-old added, "The love we have for one another is so wide and deep it's practically tangible, and that sort of love can never disappear. Expect to keep seeing happy family photos."

Porizkova then stated that neither she nor Ocasek, 74, would be further commenting on their split.

As People noted, Porizkova and Ocasek first met while filming The Cars' music video for "Drive" in 1984. They later married in August 1989.

Despite apparently being secretly separated at the time, Porizkova and Ocasek attended the singer's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction in Cleveland, Ohio together back in April (via the Daily Mail).
