The frontman of the famous rock band The Cars, Ric Ocasek, and his wife, supermodel Paulina Porizkova, announced their split after 28 years of marriage.


Is it over now for Ric and Paulina?

Sometimes, a marriage just doesn’t work out, and neither success nor worldwide glory can do anything to help here.

Ric Ocasek and Paulina Porizkova lived in a happy marriage for almost three decades. When the couple announced they filed for divorce after 28 years together, it was a shock for numerous fans.

Porizkova revealed the sad news via Instagram post. The supermodel used various metaphors to describe her marriage with Ocasek and the reason for their split. Among all, Paulina wrote:

Ric and I have been peacefully separated for the past year. The photos of our happy family are, in fact, happy family photos; we are just no longer a couple.

While reading the emotional post, it becomes obvious that the couple’s relationship saw the first decline about a year ago. Last month, Ric and Paulina made their joint public appearance at Ocasek’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction in Cleveland. The pair looked all smiles together, and it was impossible to suggest something was wrong between two of them.

The Cars star and his wife first met on set of the band’s music video “Drive.” Paulina was just 19 years old. The ex-lovebirds have two adult sons together – Jonathan and Oliver.


In her post, Porizkova also asks for understanding and privacy during this uneasy period. We hope Ric and Paulina will keep on good terms after divorce in memory of the good old years of their marriage.
