Sara Gilbert breaks up with partner Allison Adler
Sara Gilbert has broken up with girlfriend Allison Adler just a year after going public about the relationship and her sexuality.
Gilbert, known for her role as Darlene Conner on "Roseanne," opened up about her 10-year relationship with Adler during the 2010 Television Critics Assn. summer press tour, when she was promoting her new CBS show "The Talk," which she cohosts with, among others, Sharon Osbourne (above).
"I've been acting my whole life," said Gilbert, 36, "and I've never really discussed my personal life."
She had been with Adler, 44, a writer-producer on "Glee," since 2001. Together they were raising two children: son Levi, 6, and daughter Sawyer, 4. The couple plan to split custody of the children, according to E! Online.
Gilbert does have a support system in this tough time. She and her sister, Melissa Gilbert, remain close. Gilbert appeared on "The Talk" with stories about her little sister growing up. (See video below.)
