Armitage spotted alone
A fan spotted Richard Armitage walking alone, probably coming back from picking up his mail at the end of his several mile long driveway, on the afternoon of August 18, 2014. Was he all alone? “Definitely yes,” says the fan, adding that “He was wearing a large sweater and looked really cute!”
Is Richard back on the market?
A rep for Richard Armitage was not immediately available for comment.
Truth or rumor, when news that the actor was splitting hit the internet Tuesday (August 19), Twitter immediately exploded with pithy commentary. It seems everyone had an opinion on the matter:
“Has anyone Richard’s phone number?”

Based on the facts (Armitage spotted alone with a cute sweater), is there trouble in paradise or is it much ado about nothing?
