Said a rep for the actress via statement:

"After much consideration, Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald are ending their marriage. They have been living separately for the past six months due to work obligations."

Paul McDonald didn't win a recording contract on American Idol, but the experience did earn him a fiancee.

In an interview with People, the aspiring singer confirmed that he and Twilight star Nikki Reed are engaged. The couple met when this season's Idol finalists attended the premiere of Red Riding Hood.

"I'm getting married – yes – to the lovely Nikki Reed. That's been really exciting," McDonald says. "I'm really pumped up about that. She's an amazing lady, and I'm very lucky to be hanging out with her."

It's been a whirlwind romance, but no wedding date has been set yet. No truth to the rumor, either, that Paul popped the question just to guarantee himself a spot at the Breaking Dawn opening.

The Twilight Saga may have won huge at last night's MTV Movie Awards, but Nikki Reed was a winner long before she joined her castmates on stage to accept the trophy for Best Movie.

On the red carpet of the ceremony, Reed flashed an engagement ring at E! News Marc Malkin and said of her boyfriend: "He's the one."

That boyfriend - nay, fiance! - of course is American Idol finalist Paul McDonald. The pair only met in March, but, hey, who true love knows no time frame.

Paul McDonald will be okay.

Yes, the funky singer got eliminated from American Idol this week. But the aspiring artist has confirmed that he has a famous, beautiful woman to go home to each night. Yes, he really is dating Nikki Reed.

"[She's] supercool," McDonald told Us Weekly of the Twilight star. "She's been real supportive of this whole thing. She's actually pumped up now because she likes my original material way better than all the stuff I do on the show."

Paul says he and Nikki are "officially dating," but "don't get to see each other too much because [we're] both working so hard."

Is there another Idol/Twilight love connection? Is Lauren Alaina getting it on with Taylor Lautner, as some sources have reported? McDonald has no clue.

"I don't know. I think he's just a fan of Idol in general. He seems like a really cool dude. I don't know too much about that."

Paul McDonald was not voted off American Idol this week (did you see who was?!?). But the season 10 finalist has another reason to be excited these days, according to E! News sources:

He's dating Twilight Saga star Nikki Reed.

  • Paul McDonald Pic

The pair first met at the premiere for Red Riding Hood (where McDonald is actually caught on camera, admitting he doesn't know who Reed is) and have been "hanging out" ever since.

The actress has been off filming Breaking Dawn in Vancouver, while McDonald is busy in Hollywood these days, but an insider says they keep in touch via Skype. And this could give McDonald a huge Idol advantage.

Can you imagine if all Twihards give him their vote?!? Season. Over.
