Pippa Middleton, Alex Loudon Split: Report

Just when we thought we finally had a handle on Pippa Middleton's complicated love life, she goes and has a break-up.

The British papers, beginning with The Sun, have it on good word that the famous Middleton sister has ended her relationship with cricketeer ALex Loudon, whom she had been dating for approximately three years.

Said "a source" to The Sun:

"Pippa tried to get over the split by spending last weekend with Wills and Kate at Balmoral. She and Alex split briefly in the summer -- but this time it's over. They are barely speaking."

Although Loudon has been her longtime flame, Pippa had tongues wagging when she was seen out and about with ex-boyfriend George Percy this summer -- she even attended Wimbledon on back-to-back days with a different man on each day.

But by summer's end she had seemed to settle on Loudon, as the pair confirmed with a romantic late-night embrace caught on camera. There were even recent reports that Loudon was thinking of proposing, writes the Telegraph.

Not anymore. The Daily Mail reports that Pippa's skyrocketing fame may have contributed to the split, as Loudon was never quite comfortable with his girlfriend's new sex symbol status.

That status, however, may serve her well now that's she's single... there will be plenty of suitors lined up in no time.

But for now, let's take a moment to remember the bright shiny pair with few photos, below.
