Sheryl Crow and Lance Armstrong Split

February 6th, 2006 // 15 Comments

Once again, we have another couple who break up after weeks of denying that they are breaking up. Lance Armstrong and Sheryl Crow have called off their engagement. “After much thought and consideration we have made a very tough decision to split up. We both have a deep love and respect for each other and we ask that everyone respect our privacy during this very difficult time,” the statement said. How can things have gone so wrong since the former couple announced their breakup? Just recently Ms. Crow was denying that anything was wrong.

“When we were rumored to have split, and when our publicists called these magazines to say we haven’t split, the magazines were all so disappointed because that’s really what’s selling, rooting for a couple and then they split,” she said. “That’s what sells the magazines.

“Why can’t we just report things the way they are or see things for the good in them? … It’s an insidious energy.”

I guess she has some inspiration for her next album.

    After the pics of Lance and George Bush biking together last August — a la, Brokeback Texas, hit the airways, Sheryl saw her CD sales tank.

    People never thought about Sheryl’s politics before, but once confronted with the fact she was fucking a Republican — a Bush Republican no less, her fans turned on her and she protected her career over love.

    It’s especially sad when children are involved. The kids had grown to love Sheryl and she them. So when you think beyond the glamour factor, it’s just another family breaking apart.

    it’s good they broke up before breeding. their children would have had no lips.

  6. didn’t he leave his wife, who had helped him survive his cancer, for this scrawny woman who continues to fall in love with men who can advance her career?

    he and kristin (first wife) got together after he was done with cancer. she helped him restart his cycling career, not get through cancer.

    cycling news gossip is she dumped him after he told her he had cheated on her.

    she’s really hot, by the way. hotter than sheryl, in my opinion.

    Lotta Topp, couldn’t agree with you more. As soon as I saw this scroll by on the bottom of my screen while watching CNN I was like, “Yep, knew this was coming.” She had nothing but horrible things to say about Bush and the war a few years back, then when I heard he went on a bike ride with GW, I was thinking she was probably flipping out (if she was still as passionate about the whole war/Bush thing when she made her statement). Wondered how much longer it was going to last at that point.

    I don’t feel bad for Sheryl at all, I do feel bad for his first wife.

    You people have it all wrong. There was been numerous reports in the media that Lance is a user – He uses women. He wanted to be famous, and dating a rock star was his ticket. He left his wife and kids for her, so yeah, she’s to blame too, but the guy is a total cad. Sheryl (and his first wife) deserve better.

    That Damn OPRAH! Seem like once you appear on OPRAH your life changes Drastically! What out Eva Tony P!!!

    He’s a wife cheater and she’s a phoney liberal (limosine liberal, that is). What a great couple (yuk). Frankly, I never thought she was a great vocalist. And, doesn’t she look a bit like a horse?

  12. hellbent

    He always came across as arrogant and he’s known to run around with women.

    Maybe she wisened up to his BS.

  13. netty

    Once a cheater, always a cheater. If he cheated on his wife for Sheryl, why would she think he wouldnt do that on her? Stupid!

  14. Grace

    Or maybe he just discovered out how much like shoe leather Sheryl’s face really is.

    Here is my two cents: Celebrities need to stop talking about their relationships period. When you publicize your relationship and talk about how you’ve found your soulmate on national TV – the fall is harder when you have to break up.

    Stop telling us how in love you are, blah blah blah. Shut up abou it so when you break up it won’t be such a big deal. Geez.
