Marc Jacobs’ partner Lorenzo Martone has confirmed the couple’s relationship is over – insisting they “haven’t been together in two months”.

The couple staged an unofficial wedding ceremony in the Caribbean in January, and revealed they would make their union legal later this year.

The fashion designer was hit by rumors of a break-up in April, amid claims Martone had moved out of the couple’s New York home.

The split was denied, but just three months later Martone has confirmed they have parted ways.

In a post on his Twitter.com page, the advertising executive writes, “Thanks for (the) notes. Yes, I saw (the) press today. We are not together, haven’t been in two months. And we will not comment on it. Sorry. We (are) fine.”
