I'm currently feelin: sad sad

I just found these news over at u2.com :-/

~~

ADAM Clayton and his Canadian fiancee Suzanne 'Susie' Smith have sadly gone their separate ways after what isdescribed by friends as "an amicable split".

The U2 bassist and his girlfriend, who is also in the music business, broke up last month on extremely good terms after more than eight great years together. They got engaged last year on Valentine's Day at a private soiree in London where the couple spent a lot of time together. Susie was totally involved in Adam's life and even appeared in the special episode of The Simpsons when the group guested.

Adam and Susie divided their time between London and Dublin where Adam has a Georgian mansion in Rathfarnham - the same rented mansion where The Joshua Tree album was recorded in 1986. Adam subsequently bought the house for £400,000.

Suzanne Smith is a record company executive and has been based in London. She was previously an assistant to U2 manager, Paul McGuiness.

Previously the U2 star had been engaged to controversial supermodel Naomi Campbell.

In an interview with Piers Morgan in the current edition of GQ magazine, Naomi described Adam as "a wonderful friend".

It is expected that Adam will now re-establish his status as the one remaining bachelor of the group.

Is it wrong that my first thought was to do a happy dance?(I'm such an Adam fangirl *blush*...never mind that I've been happily married for a year and a half.)

I'm glad it was on good terms though. Poor baby. *hugs Ad'*

It's such a shame. I was really expecting the marriage and for them to be together. Sigh. I really also wonder what in the world is meant by "It is expected that Adam will now re-establish his status as the one remaining bachelor of the group"...

I always thought Susie was short for Susan (as my name is Suzanne and most spellings for our nickname is SuZie or SuZy...)

Sorry...just kind of random. Sad for them, though!

it doesn't strike me as something they'd bury if it were true. that article was from a couple of days ago, i'm not a cynic, but when i see it on u2.com i'll believe it. either way it's still sad if it is true.

I've seen it in a number of U2 news sites and blogs, but they've all been pick-ups of the same article from the Irish Independent. Given that they broke it three or four days ago and there's been no rebuttal from any official sources, I'd say it's probably pretty solid.

i found it. It was published in the Irish Independent according to the post over there. The only bit that was in Q magazine is Naomi calling him a good friend.

seeing as what other drivel has showed up in the Irish independent... i take this with a grain of salt. I thought you meant that U2.com itself published this on the website... its just something a fan found in the newspaper.
