Despite portraying the roles as a brother and sister, the ‘Dexter’ co-stars Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter eventually fell in love and got married. However, their relationship didn’t last long and they split in a divorce.
Currently, Carpenter is in a relationship with Seth Avett, a folk singer. It is even said that Carpenter is the reason behind Avett and his former wife’s divorce. At present, Avett and Carpenter have a son together. Let’s find out more.
Carpenter began dating Hall in 2007 and got married quietly during the New Year’s Eve of 2008. When Hall was recovering from a disease called Hodgkins Lymphoma, Carpenter had claimed that her relationship with her husband has been stronger due to his diagnosis and treatments. It came as a shock when the pair announced that they had filed for divorce because everyone believed that they are happy with each other.

The couple’s divorce got finalized in December 2011 but they didn’t discontinue to work on ‘Dexter’. There were rumors that the reason behind their divorce was Michael’s relationship with actress Julia Stiles who appeared on one of the seasons of the show.

According to Radar, just to be with Seth, Carpenter would fly all the way to attend his concerts.
