Ending a relationship is never an easy ride, and it can get even more complicated when it's under the gaze of the whole world. Nevertheless, many celebrity exes still somehow remain on good terms afterward. 

After nearly eight years together, Natasha Lyonne and Fred Armisen have officially split, and Lyonne recently revealed why. 

“I had been [in Los Angeles] living with Fred and during COVID. I honestly think we broke up because I wanted a swimming pool,” the 'Russian Doll' star told The Hollywood Reporter in a profile published on April 15. “We love each other just about as much as two people can love each other and we’re still talking all the time, but Freddy doesn’t like a swimming pool.”

She continued, “It might seem like a mundane reason for a breakup, but during that pandemic, you’ve got to get your laps—I’m like Burt Lancaster in The Swimmer. So, I got myself a house with a pool out in Los Angeles. So that’s the real scandal,” she joked. The actors were first linked in 2014 after they'd attended several pre-Emmy Awards events together, and in 2019 Lyonne told Glamour it was actually Armisen's 'SNL' co-star Maya Rudolph who had introduced the pair.
