John Mellencamp out in Soho
After three years of a rather secretive relationship with singer-songwriter John Mellencamp, Ryan is single once again.
The greatest surprise that celebrity watchers will feel for the split of actor Meg Ryan and singer-songwriter John Mellencamp, was the fact that these two screen veterans were even dating in the first place. Such was the pair’s coyness and clandestine approach to the relationship that their coupling largely flew under the radar. The liaison itself lasted all of three years and marks another in a long list of failed relationships for the now 52 year-old Ryan.
Ryan and Mellencamp's relationship remained largely hidden from the glare of the media
Ryan and Mellencamp came together some time in 2010, after Mellencamp ended an 18 year marriage with Elaine Irwin, a former model who was once the face of Ralph Lauren. Splitting their time between an east coast dwelling and Mellencamp’s longtime home of Indiana, it has been cited that it was the sheer distance between the pair that led to the split. Ryan, once a prolific actress, has not appeared in a motion picture since 2009’s Serious Moonlight but is currently producing a film entitled Ithaca. Meanwhile, Mellencamp has been busy on a new album, Plain Spoken, which is due for release shortly. But why can’t Ryan keep hold of a man?

Andy Murray's Spotify playlist boasts Rod Stewart, Robin Thicke and, err, Ed Sheeran.
Ever wanted to know what Andy Murray and his fellow Wimbledon competitors listen to before heading out onto centre court? Well, of course Roger Federer chills out to The National, Rafael Nadal listens to the soothing sounds of Spanish guitars and Djokovic listens to early Oasis. Obviously.
Andy Murray Arriving At Wimbledon This Week
But what about young Murray? With pretty much everyone in Britain anticipating him to win his first Wimbledon title, the Scottish star has shared his playlist with Spotify. It's made up of a couple of morale boosting stompers with some contemporary grooves in there for good measure. Worryingly, 1980's singer-songwriter and Meg Ryan's latest squeeze John Mellencamp makes two appearances on the list, as does Ed Sheeran. AC/DC's legendary rock anthem 'You Shook Me All Night Long' and Robin Thicke's No.1 track Blurred Lines also helps Andy remain focused. Apparently.
John Mellencamp has decided not to quit smoking as he thinks it's "a little late to give up" and the damage has already been done to his lungs.
Rock singer/songwriter, John Mellencamp, has given up any and all attempts to quit smoking, having resigned himself to be a smoker for the rest of his life, as he's been addicted to nicotine for so long. The 'Cherry Bomb' singer originally stated in 2010 that he was going to quit smoking when his son tried to convince him in 2009 but failed.
While Mellencamp's children have stopped pressuring him over quitting, he thinks that it wouldn't be worth the time anyway, as after smoking for almost 59 years, he thinks that the damage to his lungs has already been done. Mellencamp explained: "I think they're annoyed that their dad's smoking. They're worrying about having to smell the second hand smoke (rather) than their dad smoking. About a year ago, a guy counted up how many cigarettes I'd smoked - over 650,000 cigarettes. So I'm toast. It's a little late to give up!"
