Things could get awkward the next time Julianne Hough runs into Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet.
The 24-year-old "Safe Haven" star and the host of E!'s awards season coverage and Fox's "American Idol" have split after more than two years together, according to multiple reports.
People, which broke the story citing unnamed sources close to the couple, reports that the two are "taking a break and are living apart," and that their busy schedules caused them to end things.
However, they're reportedly in "regular contact and remain friends."
A source confirms to Us Weekly that their long days were to blame.
"Honestly, their schedules were too hectic," the source says. "It just got to be too much. I think they both just sort of knew they couldn't do it anymore. The travel and lifestyle got to be too much. Who knows if this is just for now, but I think this is for good."
In addition to his other gigs, Seacrest, 38, is also host of a weekday morning radio show and a weekly countdown radio show, and serves as executive producer of TV series such as "Keeping up With the Kardashians." Former "Dancing With the Stars" pro Hough has starred in movies like "Footloose" and "Rock of Ages" since leaving the dance competition show in 2009.
News of the breakup ends what has not been a great week for Hough. Over the weekend, she had $100,00 worth of jewelry that Seacrest had given her stolen from her car while it was parked at a friend's house. Then on Wednesday, the actress underwent a root canal surgery.
Think her luck will change soon?
