Well, that's the end of that romance.

My Chemical Romance is no longer feeling the love for drummer Michael Pedicone; the group claims on its website that the stickman got sticky-fingered and was caught stealing from the band. Then he responded to the charges on Twitter.

So, what went down?

"The relationship between My Chemical Romance and Michael Pedicone is over," guitarist Frank Iero wrote on the band's site. "He was caught red handed stealing from the band and confessed to police after our show last night in Auburn, Washington. We are heartbroken and sick to our stomachs over this entire situation."

And that wasn't all.

"The band has no intention of pressing charges or taking this matter any further than we have to," Iero went on. "We just want him out of our lives. The people who play in this band are a family, and family should not take advantage of each other like he did. We are currently moving forward, and hope to have a new drummer in place for our show in Salt Lake City, Utah. The show must go on."

So, what did Pedicone, who joined the group as a touring member last year, have to say about the incident?

"What happened is more complicated than it sounds but I did make a mistake. It was never my intention to hurt this band or all of you," Pedicone wrote on his Twitter page Friday. "It was an error in judgement based on a whole other situation that's way deeper but this does not define me."
