The 41-year-od actress announced her split from businessman Nick Loeb, with whom she had been engaged since 2012.
To avoid the media buzz, she issued a statement on Twitter and her Who Say account.
“Not that anyone should care, but in order to not give the press the chance to invent crazy and hurtful drama, I prefer to tell my fans personally that Nick and I have [decided] to be apart,” she wrote.
“We have [been] having too many problems with figuring out how to spend time together and [because] of my work and now his, its been getting worse and worse, not fun anymore.”
However, the two have remained close friends. “We are still very close but we [believe this] is the best thing for us right now,” she added.
The couple began dating in 2010 and experienced a breakup that ended in reconciliation and engagement.
