In a statement to People, a rep for Ricky Martin, Helga García, revealed:

Ricky and Carlos have mutually agreed to end their relationship but continue to be united by friendship and their shared experiences.

A source apparently told People back in November 2013:

They’ve spent very little time together and have grown apart. They’ve been on the outs for a while now.

The couple has been together approximately 3 years and Us Weekly has taken notes on Ricky Martin’s new relationship status reporting: The Latin singer recently showed up solo for his performance at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in Cancun on New Year’s Eve.

2. When Carlos Met Ricky, He Wasn’t Thrilled About Ricky Having Kids

Ricky Martin has two 5-year-old sons named Matteo and Valentino, who were born via surrogacy. Ricky told People last year that when he met Carlos, he wasn’t crazy about dating a family man.

When I started the process with my sons, Carlos wasn’t in my life. He said: ‘I’m looking for a boyfriend, not a father with a family.’ And I said to him: ‘You’ve found a grown-up, full-fledged man.’ I created a family structure and if he didn’t understand he’d ask me questions and we were on our way.
