Natasha Lyonne announced her split with SNL star Fred Armisen. While one may suspect that a lot of things were at the center of their relationship falling apart, Natasha herself claims that it happened over their different takes on swimming pools.

Lyonne revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that the two have indeed parted ways. She added that Armisen and herself were living together during the COVID pandemic, and that their split came to be because she wanted a swimming pool.

The “Russian Doll” star said that they love each other as much as any two people can and stay on strong talking terms. However, Fred is not up for having a swimming pool, she added, and she insisted that swimming was a must-do during the pandemic.

I honestly think we broke up because I wanted a swimming pool. We love each other just about as much as two people can love each other and we’re still talking all the time, but Freddy doesn’t like a swimming pool. It might seem like a mundane reason for a breakup, but during that pandemic, you’ve got to get your laps — I’m like Burt Lancaster in ‘The Swimmer.’

Lyonne has since then moved into a new property in Los Angeles, and yes, it definitely has a pool. The SNL alum and the actress were first involved together in 2014, when the two attended Lorne Michaels’ party before the Emmys.

Armisen has publicly spoken about being not too great at marriage. In his 2016 interview with Marc Maron on “WTF with Marc Maron podcast,” he admitted that he was “a terrible husband” to his ex-wife Elisabeth Moss, to whom he was married from 2009 to 2011.
