Actress Kate Winslet has split from her model boyfriend Louis Dowler after just four months of dating, according to a U.K. report.
The Titanic star announced her separation from Sam Mendes, her husband of seven years, in March, and she was subsequently linked to British model Dowler.

They were spotted together in London over the summer and they made their first public appearance as a couple in September at a Vanity Fair photography exhibition in Spain.

But the relationship has now ended as Winslet wants to focus on her movie career and two young children, Mia and Joe, according to Britain’s Mail on Sunday newspaper.

A source tells the publication, “Louis was just the tonic Kate needed after her painful split from Sam and they had a wonderful time. However, they have realised their relationship isn’t working and Kate needs space to be on her own.

“She is very grateful to Louis for helping her pick her life back up after her marriage ended and they had a lot of fun together, but she felt it had come to an end and wants to concentrate on her career and children.”

Dowler has refused to comment on the split reports, telling the tabloid, “Unfortunately, I don’t talk about my private life.”
