Report: Elisabeth Moss and Fred Armisen split

August 13, 2010 |  4:49 pm

Moss-armisen "Mad Men" actress Elisabeth Moss has split from her "Saturday Night Live" funnyman husband Fred Armisen, a new report says.

Married only 10 months, "Fred and Elisabeth separated in May" a source tells Life & Style Weekly.

"Fred is currently in Portland, Ore. on the set of his new series 'Portlandia.' Elisabeth is in L.A. focusing on her career and spending quiet time with friends,"  the source added.

The news comes as a bit of a shock, given the pair's aww-shucks cuteness. In January, Moss told the Ministry she was preparing to officially take Armisen's last name.

"It's complicated, you know, taxes and paperwork and stuff. Eventually I'll get around to it, but when I call places and leave my name, it's always 'Mrs. Armisen,'" she said at the 2010 Golden Globe Awards.

Not anymore, from the looks of it. Reps for both actors did not immediately return calls for comment.

[For The Record, 10:53 p.m.: A previous version of this post misspelled Elisabeth Moss' name as Elizabeth.]
