Lauren Graham and Peter Krause split up

Lauren Graham and Peter Krause split after more than 10 years together.

The couple “quietly ended their relationship last year,” the representative of the “Gilmore Girls” alum confirmed to People Friday.

Graham, 55, and the former ‘Six Feet Under’ star, 56, met in 1995 while starring on the NBC sitcom ‘Caroline in the City’ before getting their signature roles.

“She had me move some furniture into her apartment at the time,” Krause explained during a 2017 performance on “Live with Kelly.” “I didn’t catch the signal.”

They also presented together at the 2002 Screen Actors Guild Awards.

However, the longtime friends didn’t start dating until they were cast as siblings Sarah and Adam Braverman in “Parenthood” in 2010.

The exes had known each other for over a decade before they started dating.

“One of the things that was so nice is that it’s so easy,” Graham said of working with her then-beauty in a 2010 interview with Redbook. “It’s a lot, to work with someone and spend time with them too.”

She added of their romance: “No one knew for a while because we like being at home, cooking and not going out. I’m also very up to it because it’s important that you can buy us as brother and sister on the show. “

The actress looked back on the early days of their relationship in a 2017 interview with Good Housekeeping, revealing, “We couldn’t stop talking. Not about ourselves, but about the world and books and family.

“Once we got together, there was no gameplay”[ing],” she explained. “It was like, ‘You like me and I like you.’ It gave me an insight into life: this is how things happen, and it’s completely random.”

The COVID-19 pandemic found the couple at different rhythms, as Graham returned to Krause and his son Roman after five months of work in Vancouver, who had implemented several new protocols during her absence.

“I think the return was more difficult,” she said during an April 2021 appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” “It was more like they were the married couple, and I was the person who… they said, ‘We don’t do it that way anymore.’ They were like, ‘No, no, no, this is how things happen.’”
