After more than two years together, Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough have decided to call it quits! According to multiple sources, the American Idol host, 38, and former Dancing With The Stars pro, 24, are splitting up after their hectic work schedules constantly kept them apart.
However, pals close to the couple say that the real reason behind the broken relationship is Julianne’s conviction that it was built on lies. And after patiently waiting for a ring that never came, the Safe Haven star begin questioning her beau’s intentions to get married.
“She has had it with Ryan’s broken promises,” states an insider. “He told her he wanted to settle down and have a family, but Julianne doesn’t want to wait anymore. She feels like she wasted two years on someone who doesn’t want the same things that she does.”
The dancer-turned-actress, who was whisked off on a romantic Valentine’s Day getaway by Ryan, gave her man a final ultimatum before she pulled the plug. “She told him that if he couldn’t make a commitment, there is no use of them staying together,” spills the source. “Obviously they were not on the same page.”
While a breakup seemed inevitable, one friend – who was “actually shocked” by the announcement – tells Star, “I bet they get back together. They just seemed to fit together so perfectly.”
