“The Hills” Star Lo Bosworth and Scott Hochstadt split

“Lo and Scott are no longer together, but remain good friends,” Bosworth’s rep told People.

After the separation took place, Hochstadt went to a launch party for the Family Guy “It’s a Trap” DVD at L.A.’s Supper Club and he was accompanied by his parents, not Bosworth.

An insider revealed that Hochstadt had been searching for an engagement ring. “Scott was in talks with the jewelry brand Yasmin & Jazmin for the past two months. He wanted to marry Lo, and he wanted to propose with something special and personalized.”

“They had talked about getting engaged quite a bit,” the source says. “But over the last couple of weeks it really unraveled…The age difference was a lot, and they are at different places in their lives.”

Right now, “They are taking it slow as friends. Scott loves her family, she loves his family, and all their friends are heartbroken but they couldn’t make it work anymore,” the insider reveals.
