Mandy Moore legally separated from Adams five months prior to split announcement

Singer/actress Mandy Moore and rocker Ryan Adams legally separated five months prior to announcing their plans to divorce last weekend (24Jan15), according to legal papers.

A representative for the couple announced Moore and Adams had "mutually decided" to end their almost six-year marriage, insisting the split was "respectful and amicable", and now, in legal documents obtained by Us Weekly, it appears the musicians' union fell apart last summer.

The papers suggest the couple legally separated on 4 August (14).

Moore showed no signs of a possible break-up a month later in September (14), when she took to Instagram.com to congratulate Adams on the success of his new album, which includes a track featuring her back-up vocals.

Moore and Adams tied the knot in March 2009.
