Trouble in Paradise?
Liam Douglas O'Connell spotted partying the night away with old flame; Tori Evans nowhere to be seen.

A&A album launch party.
It would seem that all is not as well as we've assumed with America's favorite couple. O'Connell (right) was seen at the Antelope and Answer
album launch party last night, living up the single life with a beautiful woman who was not his wife hanging off his arm (conspicuously sans wedding ring). According to our sources, this mystery woman is none other than Sadie Lee, daughter to retired film producer Howard Lee (Exploding Explosions, Flash in the Pan, Looking for Group
) and former Hollywood socialite.
It's rumored that O'Connell and Lee met while O'Connell was filming Exploding Explosions
, more than ten years ago. The two had been spotted making the rounds together for years after, appearing in all kinds of public venues arm-in-arm, all while vehemently denying any romantic involvement.
Well, it looks like this is no longer the case. A close friend of Tori Evans tells Us Weekly
, "Liam is getting bored of married life. Now that the honeymoon period is over, he's realizing that being a husband is harder than it seems. He doesn't like having to report back to Tori about everything he's doing; he misses being single." It would appear that this Hollywood star doesn't take too kindly to being bored. He and Lee spent the night glued to each other's sides, sharing food and laughing over drinks. "They seemed really close," an eye-witness reports. "He had his arm around her waist a lot and she was leaning really close to whisper in his ear. They looked like they were having a great time; a really nice date."
O'Connell and Evans have been rumored to be fighting more and more these days, having huge shouting matches over things ranging from the couple's two Rottweiler dogs to Evans' shoe budget. "They're really not that suited for each other," Evans' close friend confides. "She wants to settle down and have the perfect American family, white picket fence and 2.5 kids and everything. He's still reluctant to give up the life he had in Australia, surfing all day and partying every night. He doesn't want to tie himself down with kids."
What's next for the unhappy couple?
"Liam's been throwing around the d-word during their fights," Evans' friend admits. "Tori's willing to sit down and try to work things out, but he's stubborn. He doesn't like being told what to do." It sounds like if things keep going on in this vein, the d-word won't just be used as a threat, it'll become a reality. "She cries herself to sleep at night. It's heartbreaking, really. If he doesn't get his act together, she's going to leave him just to spare herself the humiliation of being led on like this."
Sadly, it would appear that yes, things can look too good to be true. Step up to the plate, Liam; or one day you'll wake up and realize you've thrown everything away for nothing.
