Lana Del Rey has announced her split from her boyfriend of nearly three years, former Kassidy band member Barrie James O'Neill. Del Rey has also been under fire (again) for her reported comments on dying young in a recent interview.
It's not been a good week for Lana Del Rey. The Ultraviolence artist has separated from Scottish singer Barrie James O'Neill and has been seriously chastised by Frances Bean Cobain owing to Del Rey's comments about her father's death.
Barrie James O'Neill and Lana Del Rey have split after nearly three years together.
Del Rey announced her separation from O'Neill in a recent interview with Switzerland's 20 Minuten magazine, published on Monday (23rd June). Responding to a question about the possibility of an engagement, 28-year-old Del Rey said "We are currently not together." She continued to vaguely explain the reasons behind their split which apparently result from O'Neill's unspecified issues. She said "He is a wonderful person. But there are some things which he has to deal with. I will not explain in detail. This was hard on our relationship, I no longer felt free."

Exploding from the Glascow Alternative scene is newly formed band Kassidy, who are already making a huge impact. Formed in 2008, the band started off in small toilet tours. Bandmate Barrie-James O'Neill even has claimed that he'd 'do it even if it was for Â£2 a night'. This seems like a far distant cry from the Â£40,000 four-album deal that they have recently made with Mercury Records. Having shared a house for the past two years, recording music in cramped bedrooms and kitchens, this month sees the release of their second EP; a precursor, as you may, to their debut album set to be released later this year.
