I’m still wondering if there’s another shoe to drop with Michelle Williams’ sudden split. Again, the whole thing just seemed so out of character for her from start to finish. She’s dated several guys in the past decade, and she’s always kept it quiet and low-key and there was never a whiff of engagement or any move to make anything permanent. Then, out of nowhere, she elopes with Phil Elverum and doesn’t tell anyone until she reveals it in Vanity Fair last year. She made him sound like her big true love, like the man she’d been waiting for all this time. And then less than a year later, it’s over and there’s no real reason for the split? As I said before, I have some theories. But for now, no one’s talking except to say that everything just moved too quickly.
There’s no bad blood between Michelle Williams and Phil Elverum after their split earlier this year. Williams, 38, and Elverum, 40, quietly married and moved in together last summer, but PEOPLE confirmed that the two split after Williams attended events without her wedding ring. A source tells PEOPLE that the former couple couldn’t make it work after rushing into the relationship.
“She has too many responsibilities and jumped quickly into a permanent relationship without giving it a chance to work into something over time,” the source says in the latest issue. “There is a good bond between them, no animosity. It just didn’t work out at this point.”
This was Williams’ first marriage, but the source says the split won’t discourage her from getting married again in the future.
“Michelle is a private and an independent thinking woman with her own life,” the source says. “She is totally into marriage if it is right for her and her daughter.”
“She has too many responsibilities and jumped quickly into a permanent relationship without giving it a chance to work into something over time” - that’s what I don’t get! She’s not like that. She’s always been Ms. Cautious when it comes to “permanent relationships.” She’s always struck me as more a serial monogamist who sees through a guy’s bulls–t pretty quickly (to her credit). Why did she jump the gun here? And why did it fall apart so quickly? Hm…
