It might be time for "Glee" to do a rousing musical number set to "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do." Lea Michele has parted ways with boyfriend Theo Stockman after more a year of togetherness.
"This is not a dramatic breakup. The relationship just ran its course," says the big-lunged starlet's rep (via E! News). "They are still friends and will always be friends."
Stockman, a Broadway actor, rarely joined Michele in the spotlight, so his absence didn't raise many eyebrows when she hit the red carpet solo at Sunday's Emmy Awards.
They first stepped out as a twosome for the Time 100 Most Influential People fete in May 2010. In July, they enjoyed a romantic getaway to Hawaii, and a month later they were seen out and about in Los Angeles.
A possible contributing factor to the breakup: geography. Lea films "Glee" in Los Angeles, while Theo is based in New York.
"I'm a relationship girl," she told Glamour last year. "I would rather be in a long distance relationship with him than not have a relationship at all."
As for what drew her to Stockman, Michele told the June issue of Cosmo UK, "My father makes me laugh. My sense of humor comes from him, but at the same time, I know he's going to take care of everything. I see some of that in my boyfriend."
