Louise & Jamie: it’s not over yet

The pair are STILL liv­ing to­gether

Heat (UK) - - This Week -

They’ve kept us guess­ing for months over the fu­ture of their mar­riage, as they con­tinue to lead sep­a­rate lives while deny­ing any plans to di­vorce. But de­spite re­cent re­ports that Jamie and Louise Red­knapp are liv­ing apart and on the brink of split­ting for good, heat can re­veal that this is not the full truth. In fact, an in­sider close to the cou­ple tells us the singer is still liv­ing in their Sur­rey man­sion and that their mar­riage is far from over.

“Louise says that, with space, she hopes they can start talk­ing about their fu­ture again,” our source tells us. “She still loves Jamie and hopes to ‘con­sciously re-cou­ple’, but, at the mo­ment, is say­ing she wants her free­dom and iden­tity back. For now, she wants to split her time be­tween their home in Sur­rey – so they can spend key times to­gether as a fam­ily – and a place of her own in London.”

It’s no se­cret that the for­mer Eter­nal singer has been en­joy­ing a new lease of life since sep­a­rat­ing from Jamie, 44, in June, af­ter 19 years of mar­riage. She’s re­turned to the stage with a star­ring role in a tour­ing pro­duc­tion of Cabaret, and has said she re­gret­ted giv­ing up her pop ca­reer and turn­ing into a “Step­ford Wife”.

Our in­sider tells us the 43 year old has been go­ing back to the fam­ily home dur­ing the two days a week she’s had off from Cabaret, and with the tour due to end early next month, she’ll be spend­ing a lot more time there.

“Jamie has told friends that they come and go and take it in turns with the boys – and that’s down to their work sched­ules, not be­cause of a di­vorce,” our source tells us. “But he’s done liv­ing a game of two halves, he thinks they should make a de­ci­sion now.”

How­ever, Louise is adamant that their cur­rent set-up can ac­tu­ally save their re­la­tion­ship. Our source tells us, “She doesn’t want their home to be a neg­a­tive place for any­one. She’s look­ing for a base in London, which she’s call­ing an al­ter­na­tive sanc­tu­ary, and wants it to be near her new BFF Daisy Lowe. At the mo­ment, she and Jamie are ships pass­ing in the night, but nei­ther feel it has to end in di­vorce.”

Is that Jamie’s shirt, Louise?
