Pink splits from husband

(showbizspy.com ) - Chart topping singer Pink has split from her husband, motocross racer Carey Hart.

The couple tied the knot two years ago after meeting at an extreme sports event where Hart was competing.

But recently the pair had rumored to be fighting and spending time apart amid accusations of cheating.

Now Pink's publicist Michele Schweitzer confirms: "Pink and Carey Hart have separated.

"This decision was made by best friends with a huge amount of love and respect for one another.

"While the marriage is over, their friendship has never been stronger."

Pink, 28, and Hart, 32, met at the 2001 X Games and broke up for a time in 2003, but the split was well behind them when the singer defied convention and popped the question to her beau as he sped around the track during a competition in Mammoth Lakes, California.

They married in January 2006 at a non-denominational ceremony in Costa Rica and among the 100 guests was Lisa Marie Presley.

In August 2007, amid reports that the marriage was on the rocks, Hart dismissed the stories as 'just a bunch of trash talk'.

Even as recently as last September the couple were dogged by rumours of cheating and on the verge of splitting.

A source told Us Weekly magazine in September: "Pink was out with a table full of friends and telling them that her and Carey just wasn't working anymore.

"She contantly hassles the poor guy about cheating on her and is always bitching and moaning at him friends said.

"It sure didn't look like he was married that night! He had a cute blonde in a tight dress sitting on his lap all night.

"They were laughing and drinking vodka with her arms wrapped around him in a corner VIP booth. Carey never mentioned Pink the entire night.

Pink allegedly agreed that Carey could 'play away from home' while she is on tour, but the 28-year-old singer reportedly became broody and wanted to start a family.

She was reportedly overheard telling friends at Hollywood restaurant Eleven recently that she wanted time apart from Carey after just 21 months of marriage.

A source said" "She told them, 'We're just not getting along anymore. We each need our space. We need our distance.

"It's not like it was when we first started.' "
