SPLITSVILLE

Sarandon: Not a Cougar

Unlike most stars, Susan Sarandon's breakup with her partner of 23 years, Tim Robbins, was quiet and kept from the media for several months. But like most celebrity splits, rumors that adultery was a factor surfaced quickly. Sarandon's publicist, however, said rumors that she left Robbins for her longtime (and much younger) business partner Jonathan Bricklin are "absolutely untrue" and that her relationship with Bricklin is "strictly a business one." Robbins and Sarandon met on the set of baseball romance Bull Durham and although never married, were known as one of Hollywood's "rare enduring couples." No reason was given for the breakup.
