"One Tree" Split

By Gina SerpeTue Sep 27, 2:57 PM ET

First came love, then came marriage, then came the quickie separation.

One Tree Hill costars Chad Michael Murray and Sophia Bush have separated after just five months of marriage, Bush's rep, Cece Yorke, confirmed to E!.

Both halves of the celebrity couple released statements expressing their takes on the split.

"I am saddened to announce that Sophia and I are separating," Murray, 24, said in a statement to People magazine, which first reported the split. "This is a very difficult time for me."

Bush, 23, released a similar message to the press.

"This is a difficult and unfortunate situation," Bush said. "I am glad this is being resolved sooner rather than later."

No details were given on what exactly put such an abrupt end to the young couple's honeymoon period, but whatever trouble may have been brewing in paradise, there were no outward signs of marital strife.

Last month, Murray showed up solo for the 2005 Teen Choice Awards, but credited his wife's absence to her working on location. After nabbing the surfboard for Choice Male Hottie, he even thanked his "beautiful wife for putting [the audience] up to this."

The pin-up worthy couple first met on the set of their WB drama in 2003. Murray popped the question last May, just shy of their one-year anniversary as a couple, while filming the horror remake House of Wax in Australia.

The camera-ready cuties swapped vows in a seaside ceremony in Santa Monica last April in front of 200 guests, including their fellow WB costars.

There has been no word on whether the couple's split will affect their One Tree Hill storyline this year. Last season's two-hour finale had Murray's Luke and Bush's Brooke finally heading into steamy coupledom.

The series' third season premiere kicks off Oct. 5.

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I'm gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

People that young that build their careers on wooing young girls and boys are making a big career mistake by getting married, anyway.

maybe, but what's the biggest mistake is possible ruining your show....somehow I'm wondering if the wedding wasn't more of a publicity thing....because if it wasn't then something went really wrong in the relationship and I wonder if they could even put it aside to work together?

Do you watch the show?

I mean, I think they probably would, but if they can't it's no big loss for me ;)

But one of the girls on that show, Hillary Burton, is my friend's sister. I went to college with him and he's a great guy and his sister is a sweet girl, so it would suck for her to be out of a job.

No I don't watch the show.....but I do want it to succeed because it's taped in Wilmington, NC and they were happy to have a successful show after Dawson's Creek wrapped.

Well I can only hope Meagan Good and Joseph Gordon Levitt last as long. Your 20's are for your career and having fun so I don't know what these two were thinking.
