Chelsea Handler dunzo yet again with hunky hotelier beau?

  • Looks like it's over again for Chelsea Handler and André Balazs. Life & Style claims the pair have pulled the plug on their romance for the third time in less than two years.

    "He's been telling his friends they're done," says a source. "They're definitely over."

    Another spy offers up supposedly tangible evidence of a split: "Chelsea stopped wearing the vintage compass necklace André gave her."

    Handler's rep has yet to respond to our request for comment on the state of their relationship.

    The unfiltered talk show blonde, 38, began a long-distance romance with the square-jawed mogul, 56, in early 2011, although things hit the skids in less than a year.

    "He lived in New York and I lived in L.A., and it was a constant back and forth, flying and meeting each other. … It was just exhausting," she has said of their November 2011 bust-up. "It drained me from my career, it drained me from my work. I wasn't focused on anything. It was just stress."

    They reunited three months later, and after another rumored breakup in the summer of 2012, they reconciled once again.

    "We had some troubles in the beginning because we were both fighting who the other person was. Everything you like about somebody you end up detesting about them," Handler explained in April. "Finally, we both calmed down and then we were able to come together in a much different. … He's very romantic. He's very good for me and I'm very good for him. He's pretentious and I'm not, so I take him down a notch, and he brings me up a notch."

    Chelsea, whose exes include 50 Cent and NBC exec Ted Harbert, admitted to Oprah in March that she was in love with Balasz, despite their differences: "We couldn't be more opposite. I bring out the stupidity in him probably."

    Balazs, for his part, was spotted looking anything but lovelorn at a fashion event Wednesday night in New York.

    "He was mingling and hanging with his guy friends," an insider tells L&S.

    And Balazs should probably expect a visit from an ex-girlfriend (no, not Uma Thurman). Seems Courtney Love bumped into Balazs earlier this month while she was out with her daughter, Frances Bean.

    "In the elevator, once he was out of earshot, Frances was heard saying, 'Mom, you should totally be dating that man. Him I approve of!'" an eyewitness relayed to Page Six.

  • Courtney told Frances that he was involved with someone else, which supposedly prompted these words of encouragement: "Wait it out! You need to be right there waiting with a casserole dish."
