Singer Ellie Goulding and her musician boyfriend Dougie Poynter have reportedly chosen to take some slack from the other after hitting a bad patch within their relationship.
The Love Me Like You Do star began dating the McFly bassist a couple of years ago, though a new album to market, it looks like work is here between the lovers.
“They take a break,” an origin told Britain’s The Mirror newspaper. “Their work commitments have meant to remain spending a growing number of time away from one another and it has managed to make it difficult to maintain their relationship. They’ve chose to have a temporary break to find out if they can work things out.
“They both are very sad that everything has hit a tough patch, however are trying to find out if a little distance will help them finish it.”
Ellie has spent a final couple of months touring her album, Delirium, in America and Europe, while Dougie is working away at new music in reference to his McFly bandmates in England and also partaking within a spot of modelling.
“Globe trotting will surely take its toll on any relationship, but it’s especially hard when work regularly demands that both parties have to be away,” the insider continued.
The timing from the break seems just a little strange as a few months ago Ellie, 28, revealed she could see herself spending the entire content of her life with Dougie.
“He is the one forever,” she told Elle UK magazine. “He’s undergone a lot, and hubby has a quiet depth that I love, and also you know what, when I would be a teenager, I fancied him, but I thought he was away from my league. Way too good-looking for me personally.”
Neither Ellie nor Dougie have confirmed the reports.
