New York City Ballet Gossip
The real-life fairy tale marriage of ballet stars Robert Fairchild and Tiler Peck is over. Representatives for the New York City Ballet principal. NEW YORK (AP) — The real-life fairy tale marriage of ballet stars Robert Fairchild and Tiler Peck is over. Representatives for the New York City. Not Tiler Peck, of New York City Ballet. And this spring, she took Ms. Peck and Robert Fairchild in Balanchine's “Who Cares?”CreditAndrea.
It had even gotten to the point that there were bachelor and bachelorette parties set up for them and several NYCB members participated. I suspect that Joaquin got cold feet.
But I wonder if a wedding reception was planned and paid for and a honeymoon I think most of you have heard on the Broadway threads that ex-NYCB dancer Robert Fairchild left his wife Tiler Peck for another man - his understudy and replacement in the London production of "An American in Paris" a handsome and charming young man called Ashley Day.
How Tiler Peck and Robbie Fairchild Went From Childhood Sweethearts to Dance Partners for Life
Meanwhile Robbie and Tiler's lawyers are working out the divorce. Megan and ex sister-in-law Tiler are no longer friends or following each other on social media. Happy as I am for Robbie and Ashley, I can't help but think that the totally blameless Tiler Peck got fucked over by everyone here She was bitter towards him because he told her she was too old to dance certain roles and that she needed to start thinking about retirement.
That caught her completely off-guard, because she hadn't even begun to think about leaving NYCB. Then she got injured and more or less blamed Martins for that too, as she felt her injury was a physical response to being told she was "too old.
I have no doubt that he is a major hot head who screamed at and intimidated some of his dancers. He is an intimidating guy. And I have no doubt he hit on some of them too.
Honestly, I don't care. He was in a impossible position taking over after Balanchine's death and I think for the most part, he did a very good job.
Did a Google search and found nothing. And speaking of Peter Martins, I'm told he deliberately pressured gay male dancers to marry women, because he himself is a rabid homophobe -- aside from all of his other major personality issues. I'm glad he is finally out of NYCB. Since then, I see ballet as a lot of flouncing about on stage. And he was friends with George Balanchine! Fellow hotties Zachary Catazaro and Amar Ramasar have been suspended without pay until for the same reason.
Hoping there's some kind of gay love affair involved. Why aren't we getting to dance with each other? It's not like one was doing something that the other person wasn't, so we still knew what the other person was going through and could be there for each other.
But while Tiler was starring in Little Dancer in D. How did you make that work? I think we FaceTimed more than we ever have. Thank God for FaceTime. I don't know how people did it back in the day, when it was just your voice.
We spoke to each other every day. And it was weird because the first time I would talk to her would be four in the afternoon because that's when she'd wake up. That was really hard. I felt like I spent so much of my day without her, and then we had such a short window before I went to bed.
Then, from 7 PM on, she didn't have me to talk to, so we just tried to soak up that time. I feel like we got closer through it all though.
We're stronger than we've ever been, so even though it's hard to be apart, I feel like we really worked at it, and are much closer together now. How long had it been since you'd seen each other when you got to Paris? I think there was a month when we didn't get to see each other. It felt longer than a day, but I think it was also just crazy. I remember when we gave each other a hug, he felt so big.
She felt so tiny. I started calling her peanut. It kind of stuck with me ever since. Are you glad that you got married before you spent all of this time apart? One thing that was great was that you may not have the other person next to you, but you have a ring on your finger that they put on your hand, so you felt like there was some part of them that was there with you. That is so romantic! What are your days like now that you're both back in the city, and Robbie is settling into life on Broadway?
Do you still miss him at the ballet, Tiler?

Yes I miss him. Obviously I would like to spend every minute with him, just because I have the most fun when he's with me, but at least now we get to see each other at some point during the day. Before we were just getting to see each other for an hour or an hour and a half at night, so I'm much more thankful for the schedule now. How do you spend time together now? When we have earlier performances we usually go to a restaurant right around the corner and have dinner.
On Sunday nights we get together with friends, maybe go see a show, and then Monday is pretty relaxing. We try to not do anything. Your one year anniversary is coming up! Do you have plans? We're going to Greece! Well, that's our anniversary present, but on our actual anniversary we're going to stay at the Highline Hotel in the suite that I used to get ready in, and where we stayed on the night we got married, which will be really special.
The wedding You two have danced many pas de deuxs at City Ballet. Do you ever get to dance with each other now? No, not at all right now… Is it hard to see each other dance with other people?
Well, I've never been able to watch her kiss somebody else in the ballet. I always have to turn away, because I don't want to see that.
But look at what Tiler has to watch you do in An American in Paris! She could just turn her eyes too. I never liked watching it, so I don't blame her for not wanting to watch it either. I felt like in the dance world it was different, because I was so used to it. People would ask about the touching and stuff, but when you're dancing you don't even notice it. It's just what you do all the time, but I would agree, I don't like having to watch him kiss somebody else.
What is the difference between dancing together as opposed to dancing with someone you're not in love with? I think it comes from a very honest place.
We don't have to pretend at all when we dance together. People at City Ballet have always said they've enjoyed watching us dance, because you can tell how much we care about each other. I get more nervous with her than with anybody else, because I want her to have the best show. I stress a little bit more than I usually do, but it's because I want it to go really well.
What's been your favorite dance that you have done together? It's funny that it's Gershwin because you're doing American in Paris. We dance to "The Man I Love. We had been off and on, so it's always been a special pas de deux for us. It's something that I don't ever really want to do with anybody else. Since you grew up together what changes have you noticed in each other as you've gotten older?
He's still the goofy, funny person. He's become better at communicating, but he's still the same person, just more mature. I feel like she's the same person. She's grown and matured and all that stuff, but we still goof off in the same silly ways.
Nothing has really changed, which is good because life's changing around us, but I don't feel like we're really changing. Did you know that you would end up together when you met? I have a funny story about that.

I remember one time we broke up when I was like 15 — he was always breaking up with me — but this time I was bawling to my grandma like, "He's the one grandma!
