The couple was known for their eccentricity, and even wore viles each other’s blood around their necks. After their split Thornton explained, “We just had different lifestyles. Hers is a global lifestyle and mine is an agoraphobic lifestyle,” he joked. “So that’s really, that’s the only reason we’re probably not still together, maybe. There was a different path in life we wanted to take.” One thing is for sure, it was a wild ride!
