Ricky Martin and his boyfriend of several years, Carlos Gonzalez Abella, have officially split up.
Martin's rep confirmed the breakup with People saying, "Ricky and Carlos have mutually agreed to end their relationship but continue to be united by friendship and their shared experiences."
The 42-year-old singer and Gonzalez have twin sons, Valentino and Matteo, who were born through surrogate five years ago.
The breakup, while sad, isn't a complete surprise as reports surfaced in August that their relationship might in trouble due to distance. "They've spent very little time together and have grown apart," a source said. "They've been on the outs for a while now."
According to The Huffington Post, Martin also sent out some tweets during the holiday weekend that now appear to possibly be hinting towards their split. One, tweeted on Dec. 25, read "Just because the lesson comes from someone you love, does not mean it is correct" and the other, two days later, said, "Changes oh changes."
