Welsh soul singer Duffy has split from her rugby star boyfriend, according to a U.K. report.
The Mercy hitmaker began dating sportsman Mike Phillips in 2009, and gushed about the relationship, declaring, “We spend the majority of our time in bed. We enjoy time together so much we don’t really have an interest in being elsewhere.”

But the stars’ hectic schedules have prompted them to part ways, according to Britain’s Mail On Sunday.

A source tells the publication, “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. It happened a few weeks ago during the World Cup. It’s largely down to their careers and the amount of traveling they do. They were rarely together.”
