Jennifer Carpenter - Jennifer Carpenter Linked To Newly-single Seth Avett

Actress Jennifer Carpenter has been romantically linked to The Avett Brothers star Seth Avett, a day after the folk singer announced the end of his marriage.

The musician took to the band's website on Tuesday (11Jun13) to reveal that he had split from his partner of five years, Susan, admitting that they had been "separated for some time".

It has since been revealed that Avett has already moved on to date Dexter beauty Carpenter, sparking false rumours alleging the actress was to blame for the marriage breakdown.

However, Avett's estranged spouse is keen to set the record straight, telling UsMagazine.com, "It saddens me to hear of such unfounded speculation surrounding the end of our marriage, which is in and of itself a difficult time for both of us. I ask that for our sake, and the sake of our family and friends, that everyone respect our privacy during this time."

Reports suggest Carpenter has been pals with Avett for a few years after meeting at a concert, but their friendship only recently turned romantic.

A source says, "She loves music and has always been a big supporter of the band. The relationship developed over the past few months...

"(They) have a lot in common and seem to have a similar sense of humour. There is an ease about their relationship. Friends and family couldn't be happier for them. They are a good match."

Carpenter, 33, was previously married to her Dexter co-star Michael C. Hall.
