Hey, Ladies! Radiohead’s Thom Yorke is Single Again

After 23 years, Thom Yorke has consciously uncoupled (sorry) from his girlfriend, Rachel Owen.

Girlfriend. Twenty-three years. Two kids. Cue the Beyonce.

At 2.3 decades, this was one of the longest-lasting relationships in the rock world. They started dating back in the earliest days of Radiohead when both of them were still at Exeter University. Now Thom will have to change his Facebook status for the first time ever.

So what happened? No clue. Thom released this statement. ‘After 23 highly creative and happy years, for various reasons we have gone our separate ways. It’s perfectly amicable.’

Rachel gets the $6.1 million house in Oxfordshire and probably half of Thom’s $45,000,000 fortune. Hey, that’s only fair, right?
