Lauren Graham and her longtime partner, Peter Krause, have called it quits after more than ten years together, signalling the end of an era for one Hollywood power couple.
The 55-year-old actress and 56-year-old actor “quietly ended their relationship last year,” according to a rep for the Gilmore Girls star. It’s unknown what caused their breakup or why they kept it a secret until now. The actress’s representative has been contacted for comment by ET.
After co-starring as siblings on the NBC dramedy Parenthood for six seasons from 2010 to 2015, Graham and Krause developed a love relationship.
When questioned about the couple’s future plans during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2014, Lauren Graham struggled to respond.
“I’m never sure how to respond to this question,” she joked. “I’m not sure. We are overjoyed. ‘Aren’t we married already really?’ I feel like I’ve been in Hollywood for close to five years.”
Lauren Graham then joked about their quarantine condition on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in April 2021, after they had spent five months apart while she was filming The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers in Vancouver, Canada.
“Normally, it’s a two-hour flight, and I’d come home on weekends,” Graham explained. “But because of COVID, I couldn’t do that, and we were separated for almost five months, which had never happened before.” “As a result, when I returned home, the house had changed. I’d say there were more piles.”
While Lauren Graham was away, Krause and his then-19-year-old son, Roman, had been living together, and by the time she returned, they had created some new rules.
“He and his son had really bonded, which is fantastic,” Graham says, laughing. “But I think the reentry was more difficult.” “It was more like they were the married couple and I was the one who… ‘We don’t do it that way anymore,’ they said. ‘No, no, no, this is how things work,’ they said.”
