Kim Gordon talks about split from Thurston Moore

Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon opened up to Elle magazine this month about her breakup with her husband of 27 years and band mate, Thurston Moore. The divorce is not finalized, but she blames it on the “usual” things: “Midlife crisis. Star struck woman.”

In short, she says that Moore cheated on her, and though they tried to work it out he never stopped seeing the other woman. “Thurston was carrying on this whole double life with her,” Kim says. “He was really like a lost soul.”

Don’t cry for Kim, though; she says she’s now having fun dating younger men.
