Ellie Goulding is said to have split from dubstep star Skrillex, with the pair said to be reportedly blaming distance on not being able to make their relationship work.

Brit singer Goulding was with Sonny Moore aka Skrillex for seven months but apparently they didn't find enough time for each other. The pair got together after the dubstep producer emailed the 25-year-old singer to tell her he was a fan of her music.

A source told The Sun; “It’s really sad, they were really good for each other. They just couldn’t make it work. They both have successful careers and live in different countries.”

Goulding's new album Halcyon was released earlier this month and the singer revealed how the new album is unintentionally based on her break-up with Radio One DJ, Greg James. So will her third album now be based on this split?!

The couple, who met when they worked together on his 'Bangarang' EP, have been dating for around six months and got together after she split from Radio 1 DJ Greg James.

Discussing her relationship in April of this year, Ellie confirmed her intention to move across the Atlantic. "I scarily love LA a lot so I’m thinking about moving here," she told The Sun.

Adding: “My fans in the UK might be quite sad to hear that.”
