"We are splitting up."

Paramore's Hayley Williams and New Found Glory's Chad Gilbert have announced their breakup.

In a joint statement posted on both of their Instagram accounts, the husband and wife said, "We've grown up together and we've been beside each other through a lot of goodness and a lot of challenges.

They continue: "Marriage is not for the faint of heart. Love is an absolute risk. And it's up to each of us to stay hopeful even when the outcome isn't what we'd originally hoped for.

"We want to publicly state - plainly, and only this time - that we are splitting up.

"We also feel it's important to state that we are going to be okay and in fact, we remain close friends who are good in each other's eyes."

They ended: "Thanks to our families and friends for loving us in all our seasons."
