Paulina Porizkova and Ric Ocasek have separated after 28 years of marriage.

The model and actress, 53, announced on Instagram on Wednesday that she and the Cars rocker have not been a couple for the past year.  "Our family always has been -- and still is -- a well-built car" she wrote. "When the four of us are together, we can go wherever the road takes us. But as a bicycle, my husband and I no longer pedal in unison. So, we're ditching the bicycle."

They first met while filming the music video for the Cars song “Drive” in 1984 and were together last month when 74-year-old Ocasek was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. They have two children.
