There’s plenty of buzz surrounding the new relationship between Avett Brothers’ Seth Avett and ‘Dexter’ actress Jennifer Carpenter, since it was initially reported that Carpenter was the reason Avett split with his wife Susan. Such is not the case, as the couple began dating only recently, after years of friendship and after his marriage had fallen apart.

The romance between Avett, 32, and Carpenter, 33, was confirmed to Us Weekly by a source close to the situation. Apparently, Carpenter, who was married to her ‘Dexter’ co-star Michael C. Hall, who plays the series’ titular character, digs the folk-country band’s music.

“Jennifer met Seth about four years ago at a concert,” the source said. “She loves music and has always been a big supporter of the band. The relationship developed over the past few months.”

The insider acknowledged that the musician and the actress “have a lot in common and seem to have a similar sense of humor. There is an ease about their relationship. Friends and family couldn’t be happier for them. They are a good match.”

The insider also firmly stated that the relationship was not the catalyst for Avett’s marriage imploding, saying, “They were friends for a long time, but the relationship did not start until he and his wife were separated. There is no bad blood there.”

That fact was confirmed by Avett’s wife, who said that Carpenter had nothing to do with their split, labeling early reports as inaccurate. She said, “It saddens me to hear of such unfounded speculation surrounding the end of our marriage, which is in and of itself a difficult time for both of us. I ask that for our sake, and the sake of our family and friends, that everyone respect our privacy during this time.”
