Are celebrities more likely to divorce or break up? Earlier this week news reports surfaced that Deep Purple original guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, 75, and his partner had split up. Is the English guitarist really single again?
UPDATE 04/12/2020 : This story seems to be false. (read more)
Blackmore spotted alone
A fan spotted Ritchie Blackmore walking alone, probably coming back from picking up his mail at the end of his several mile long driveway, on the afternoon of December 2, 2020. Was he all alone? “Definitely yes,” says the fan, adding that “He was wearing a large sweater and looked really cute!”
Is Ritchie back on the market?
A rep for Ritchie Blackmore was not immediately available for comment.
Truth or rumor, when news that the guitarist was splitting hit the internet Thursday (December 3), Twitter immediately exploded with pithy commentary. It seems everyone had an opinion on the matter:
“Has anyone Ritchie’s phone number?”

“So very sad… Those 2 were so great as a couple. So cute together.”

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