Looks like Duffy wasn't ready to settle down after all!
The UK singer was rumored to be giving up music last spring in favor of starting a family with her rugby star boyfriend, Mike Phillips, but it appears they've called it quits! A friend told sources:
"It’s sad, but it’s all over. Mike and Duffy went through a rough patch in May but they worked through it and spent the summer together between London and Wales. We were all hoping it would work out but they broke it off again recently and Duffy has said this time it’s final.
Sad news indeed. Apparently, the break up occurred while Mike was playing in the rugby World Cup. The close friend continued to explain that the distance between the two after Mike began playing for French club team, Bayonne, was damaging their relationship, saying:
"It happened a few weeks ago during the World Cup. It’s largely down to their careers and the amount of travelling they do. They were Rarely together. The long-distance thing had become a problem. While they managed to cope with conducting a relationship between London and Wales, it got harder with Mike being in France."
Long distance is tough. Sorry things didn't work out guys. We hope everything works out for the best!
