When they broke up after more than three years together, word was "the distance" simply got between them—but now John Mellencamp is talking about ex Meg Ryan, and it sounds like there may have been more factors at play. "I loved Meg Ryan. She hates me to death," Mellencamp, 65, told Howard Stern on Stern's SiriusXM show Wednesday, per People. "She just doesn't want anything to do with me."

Why? He theorized it may have something to do with his childlike tendencies: "I throw fits, I gripe, I complain. I’m moody. Every bad thing that a fella can be, that’s me." He added that he has tried to make amends, but Ryan, 55, is not interested, and he doesn't blame her. (More Meg Ryan stories.)
