Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough have reportedly called it quits after dating for almost three years.
According to People, sources close to the couple have confirmed that they have decided to take a break and are currently living apart. The sources say both Seacrest and Hough's busy work schedules ended up being too much on their relationship, although they remain friends and are in regular contact.
"Honestly, their schedules were too hectic," an insider tells Us Weekly, explaining that Seacrest's "American Idol" hosting gig, as well as Hough's work commitments played a huge factor in the breakup. "It just got to be too much. I think they both just sort of knew they couldn't do it anymore," the source adds. "The travel and lifestyle got to be too much. Who knows if this is just for now, but I think this is for good."
"It's a hard thing to do, especially when you're so caught up in your work and bettering yourself," Hough recently told Parade of keeping her romance with Seacrest alive. "It does get hard because you're so focused on that, but I think at the end of the day you have to find a balance with what's really important."
