Lainey - Doing it to get her back

New Lainey riddle today -

Doing it to get her back

We were all a little sad, I think, when it was confirmed that they’d broken up. No one sadder than him. But she left him because of his drinking. It was excessive, and with the experience of her last relationship, she saw the signs and opted for self-preservation. In addition to his relationship with alcohol though, he also had an unconventional relationship with sex. Think...Michael Fassbender in Shame. Along those lines. Though he was faithful to her, totally, there are addiction issues he clearly has to address. And he’s doing that now, going to meetings, reaching out to another celebrity in recovery with whom he’s worked, as some of their issues are quite similar. He’s almost a month sober now and, yes, he’s doing it, in part, to get her back which... well... they know that’s not the way, don’t they? A few people close to him don’t think he’s really taking it seriously if he hasn’t committed to rehab. And she can see that too. For her, this is permanent, even though he doesn’t seem to be able to accept it.

Top suspects: Michelle Williams, Jason Segel

I haven't read any other comments yet. But am thinking Michelle Williams and Jason Segel. Her previous relationship (Heath).

His friend with similar problems could be Russel Brand because they starred in Forgetting Sarah Marshall together!

Makes perfect sense. Too sad for both of them.

No Will Arnett and Amy Poehler- lainey posted about how sad she was and we all would be when they split. And will Arnett is on record talking about his drink problem in his twenties.

But what about "her previous relationship" and "famous friend in recovery"? Doesn't really fit Will Arnett and Amy Poehler...Im thinking Jason Segel/ Michelle Williams? Heath Ledger/ Russel Brand for sure

Katy Perry and John Mayer? She had the previous relationship with Russell Brand. Although I'm not sad that Katy & JM broke up bc I'm not a fan of John Mayer. But it could fit...

mo said...

Or Diane Lane & Josh Brolin! It's known that Josh Brolin has/had a drinking problem.

Will Arnett and Amy Pehler? No, because she had no past relationship with a drug abuser that we know of. I thought that too when she said about being sad. But doesn't fit.

Diane Lane/Josh Brolin? No, because we already know he abused her and we aren't sad about that breakup.

KAty Perry/John Mayer? No, we weren't sad about that breakup either. Lainey says all the time he is a sleaze and pees on girls. That breakup is not upsetting to anyone.

I am sticking with Jason and Michelle because Lainey liked them together, they are a breakup that made us sad. And Michelle's ex Heath Ledger had a problem with drug abuse. They fit.

It was confirmed today that Jason Segel has been in rehab for Alcohol abuse, and has been 12-days sober so far...

Rebecca said...

Lainey confirmed this in today's column: "I guess Jason Segel’s chances of reconciling with her... are pretty sh-tty right now. As I’ve previously reported, in an unseen kind of way, ahem, she was pretty firm about their split. He has some issues to work out on his own anyway."

according to another gossip blogger,Segel wanted to adopt Matilda and Michelle disagreed and it was a huge argument
