Actress Jessica Lange has been secretly single for two years - she quietly separated from her longtime partner, playwright/actor Sam Shepard, in 2009.
The Oscar winner began dating Shepard in 1982 and the couple has two children together, Hannah and Samuel.
People.com reports the stars called off their romance after 27 years, although they chose to keep the news to themselves.
A source says, "They both are pursuing independent lives."
A representative for Lange has since confirmed the split to the website.
