    The pair first got together in March 2011 after being introduced by mutual friends and dated for three years before Ricky popped the question in February 2014.

    The ex-lovers tied the knot in September 2015 in a luxury ceremony at Brush Creek Ranch in Saratoga, Wyoming.

    The wedding was attended by 200 guests including Katy Perry, John Mayer, Bruce Springsteen and Seth Meyers – and, the nuptials were officiated by actor Tom Hanks.

    A source told People at the time: ‘The magical setting featured a small creek and spectacular views,” the source said about the pair’s nuptials. ‘It was a stunning ceremony.’

    The pair who lived together in Chelsea, New York are now believe to be living separately.

    Though the ex-lover do not have any children, they do share a beloved Golden Retriever, Moxie.

    It has not yet been confirmed who will get custody of their beloved pet pooch.

    Allison has recently finished filming three-series of the TV adaptation, A Series of Unfortunate Events shown on Netflix.

    And, the actress caused a stir among viewers who saw her Netflix horror movie ‘The Perfection’, with many claiming it was so gruesome it made them ill.
