A representative of Kim Kardashian confirmed the news to Radar Online: the 28-year-old reality TV celebrity and her NFL boyfriend have broken up. The star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Reggie Bush called it quits last Tuesday, for several reasons. All we're sure of is that they're over, but are trying to remain amicable towards each other.
Kim Kardashian and the New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush have been together for two years. They were last spotted together on a charity venture in Africa, but things have fallen apart since then.
The rep told Radar Online, "This is one case where a couple is breaking up and really do hope to remain friends. They were very grown up about the decision to end the romance."
Even so, several insiders revealed that both seem to regret the harsh resolution. Their relationship suffered from the time they spent apart, and will likely get more difficult with another NFL season coming up.
"They never get to see each other, ever," a source told People. "It's been a long time coming. They still love each other and are part of their lives, but Reggie spends six months out of the year in New Orleans, so it's tough."
Another insider, meanwhile, thinks there might be hope for the pair. It's likely that this break is temporary, but we've yet to hear from Kim and Reggie themselves.
A friend close to the two has revealed that both are "very sad" about the split. It was divulged to E! News: "They love each other a lot and hope someday they can make it work. But for now, he starts his football season this week and Kim starts filming season four of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and they just need this time apart."
It wasn't long ago that Kim had to fight off rumors about being engaged to Reggie Bush. They were so close to tying the knot, so this comes as a surprise for many of their friends and fans.
