Grow apart. After nearly eight years together, Natasha Lyonne and Fred Armisen officially separated.

“I have been [in Los Angeles] living with Fred and during COVID. I honestly think we broke up because I wanted a pool,” the Russian doll star, 43, said The Hollywood Reporter in a profile posted Friday, April 15. “We love each other about as much as two people can love each other and we always talk all the time, but Freddy doesn’t like the pool.”

She continued: “It may seem like a trivial reason for a breakup, but during this pandemic you have to do your tricks – I am like Burt Lancaster in The swimmer. So I bought myself a house with a swimming pool in Los Angeles. So that’s the real scandal. Guess I’m finally a true bicoastal.
