After 18 years together — and just months after vehemently denying breakup rumors — Mad Men actor Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt have announced their split.

The two began dating in 1997, when they met at a mutual friend’s party. On Monday, they issued a joint statement to the media to make the painful announcement.

“With great sadness, we have decided to separate, after 18 years of love and shared history. We will continue to be supportive of each other in every way possible moving forward,” Us Weekly reports the couple wrote.

A friend of the couple told Us that the breakup has been in the works for a while now.

“They’ve been fighting for a while, but now they’re done,” the insider said. “They decided to finally split. It’s sad.”

Back in April, amid Hamm’s stint in rehab for an alcohol addiction, the couple denied rumors that they were heading for a split, especially following a story in In Touch magazine that claimed Westfeldt was seeing another man.

“The story that appeared in this week’s edition of In Touch magazine is not true,” a rep for Hamm said at the time. “The only gentleman Jennifer visited regularly in Connecticut was Jon, while he was in rehab. They continue to ask for the public’s understanding and sensitivity during this challenging time.”

The couple was last seen out and about together back in January, when they attended a Broadway show. Though they were together 18 years, Hamm and Westfeldt never married or had children.
