Michelle Branch is taking her breakup with Patrick Carney to the next level

Michelle Branch and Patrick Carney’s relationship went from match-made in music heaven to complete disaster in a matter of days. Branch and the drummer of The Black Keys have graced the pop-alternative music scene since 2015, when they met at a Grammy event, according to Entertainment Weekly. “He said, ‘Where have you been?'” she said. The two immediately began using their creative powers and merging their romantic and artistic lives into one. Together, Branch – whose collaboration with Santana earned her a Grammy in 2002 – and Carney developed her third solo album, Hopeless Romantic, her first since 2003.

The “Everywhere” singer’s relationship with Carney gave her the extra boost she needed to deliver what fans had long been anticipating. “It was the first time someone pushed me to figure everything out on my own,” she told EW. As their careers evolved, so did their love. In July 2017, Branch announced their engagement on Instagram. Before they could tie the knot, Branch and Carney welcomed a son, his first, and her second in August 2018, as she also shares a daughter with ex-husband Teddy Landau, People reported.

After deciding to postpone their wedding because of the pregnancy, they finally sealed the deal in an April 2019 ceremony in New Orleans, according to People. But their seven-year relationship collapsed in August amid cheating allegations and an arrest. Now Branch takes the necessary steps to put an end to her suffering once and for all.
