Sad news. TheBacklot fave Cheyenne Jackson has reportedly split with his husband of two years Monte Lapka, relocated to West Hollywood and has a new “very young” boyfriend. Nothing wrong with a young boyfriend, but the sad part is Jackson is covering his gorgeous body with a lot of tattoos. Excessively wordy tattoos in comic sans.
Queerty quotes a source that ran into Jackson and his new boyfriend at a Hollywood pool party:
“Cheyenne has shaved his head, covered his once gorgeous body in what I can only describe as prison tattoos and is now sporting a handlebar mustache. His inner arm has a tattoo of the AA slogan ‘Life on life’s terms.’ The other ones look like they were done by an inmate at San Quentin.”
Ouch. Our pals over at NewNowNext are wondering if Cheyenne is going through some sort of mid-life crisis and holding out hope those tats are temporary and for an upcoming role in Sons of Anarchy.
At least the ’stache is for a movie role (source)
UPDATE: Cheyenne Jackson’s publicist sent us the following statement this afternoon …
Cheyenne Jackson and his husband Monte Lapka have mutually decided to divorce. The couple have been together for 13 years, and were married in NY State 2 years ago. It is an amicable parting and understandably, a private matter.
