Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough have decided to go their separate ways after three years together.

The “American Idol” host, 38, and actress, 24, have decided to live apart and take a break from their relationship.

“Honestly, their schedules were too hectic,” an insider tells Us Weekly, explaining that Seacrest’s “American Idol” hosting gig, as well as Hough’s work commitments played a huge factor in the breakup.

“It just got to be too much. I think they both just sort of knew they couldn’t do it anymore,” the source adds. “The travel and lifestyle got to be too much. Who knows if this is just for now, but I think this is for good.”

“It’s a hard thing to do, especially when you’re so caught up in your work and bettering yourself,” Hough recently told Parade of keeping her romance with Seacrest alive. “It does get hard because you’re so focused on that, but I think at the end of the day you have to find a balance with what’s really important.”

Julianne Hough has been hanging out with her friends to no doubt keep her mind off of the split.

On Saturday, Hough tweeted, “Beachin’ with my bitches,” along with a photo of her and four friends.
