The 36-year-old actor and the beautiful blonde aged 25, who had been dating since 2006, broke up last week for the second time.
“It was amicable, they’re still friends and they are still talking,” said a source close to the couple. “They just grew apart and went their separate ways.”
According to the informant, there was no one else involved in the separation, although Bar Refaeli was recently photographed with another man in Berlin at a dinner, who turned out to be her agent.
“They do this every two years,” another source explains. “They could be back together next week.”
The former lovers, who have always been very discreet about their relationship, separated for the first time in 2009. They were reunited six months later.
The source added: “Neither were ready to settle down, and both have busy careers that have been taking them in different directions.”
