US Weekly is reporting that Mandy Moore (22) and her boyfriend Zach Braff (31) are finito. A source tells the magazine that the 9 year age difference between Moore and Braff was a contributing factor in the break-up, "Mandy was very young when they got together and she wanted to see what's out there, now that she's a woman. Zach was mature and realized it is time to let her do that." Hmmm...considering she dated the likes of Wilmer Valderama before meeting Zach Braff, I would think she would already know what kind of pond scum was "out there." How very Jessica Simpson of her. Mandy reportedly is not happy with tabloid reports talking about her rumored break-up with Braff (yikes! sorry Mandy!) and according to Hollywood.com, posted the following message on her website:
"I believe that personal issues (like this one) should be kept private. "This sort of unscrupulous conduct should be unethical for the media to practice and I'm sickened by the extent that these people are willing to go to make a name for themselves."
I like Mandy and I don't blame her for feeling that way, so good for her for saying that. Who likes anyone getting all up in their business? Unfortunately, in today's tabloid world that yes, includes all us lovely bloggers, the cold hard fact is it all comes with living in the world of celebrity.
