Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis, 45, and his girlfriend Heather Christie, 22, have broken up after three years together. The two have a nine month old son, Everly Bear, and are said to have been living apart for over a month. In her statement acknowledging their breakup, Christie called Kiedis a great dad and added a little thinly veiled dig at the end:
The Red Hot Chili Peppers singer, 45, and Christie, 22, a former model, recently ended their relationship of more than three years and have been living apart since June, according to sources.
The former couple have a son together, Everly Bear, who was born last October.
“Anthony is a great dad and I will love him forever for giving me the gift of life,” Christie tells PEOPLE. “I really hope he finds what he’s looking for.”
They’ve been dating since Kiedis was 42 and Christie was just 19. That’s a huge age difference and it’s not like that relationship was going to last anyway. I wonder what she means by “finds what he’s looking for” though. Kiedis is into Kabbalah and it’s possible she’s referring to that, but it’s probably just a standard breakup issue like he’s been looking for companionship elsewhere or they drifted apart and have different interests now. In photos I found of Keidis from May he wasn’t wearing the red string, so he may not be that into Kabbalah at this point anyway.
