Alexa and Alex Split
British model and TV presenter Alexa Chung was left heartbroken this week when sources revealed she has split from her boyfriend of five years, Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner, with some saying the couple had been putting on a false façade for nearly a month.
They were the IT couple of the fashion and rock’n’roll world but insiders claim the pair went their separate ways over a month ago with the famous couple showing the strain of their relationship in Glastonbury where the usually cosy duo were seen avoiding each other.
A pal spilled, “Things haven’t been going well and they haven’t seemed like a couple for the past few weeks. At Glastonbury festival, they barely said a word to each other, it looked strained.”
Adding, “They really wanted to give it a go to hold it together and seemed to be getting back on track – but things got bad again and they both decided enough was enough. They want to stay friends so it’s best to split now. They’ve been through a lot together and all their friends are sad they’ve called time as a couple. Alexa and Alex both wanted things to work. It was best that they both got out now and saved their close friendship.”
While the couple claim the split is amicable some think Alexa and Alex’s relationship may have been a burden on the 25-year-old musician from leading a truly rock’n’roll lifestyle.
Alexa moved out of their New York apartment while Alex is on a world tour with the Arctic Monkeys until January. A source confirmed, “Alexa has moved all her stuff out and is concentrating on getting her American TV career back on track.
