The news of the break-up surfaced just three months after the actor claimed they were 'kind of' betrothed.

The couple began dating in September 2014 and became engaged just seven months later, although the pair refused to explicitly confirm or deny the reports.

'Rob is tired of it, has called off their engagement and told friends they have split. With so much -history between them, though, there are still strong feelings there.

'It’s a difficult situation but things have become tough between them for some time and they both know they were no longer working as a couple.'?

?The pair have not been pictured together since May 2017, and last month, FKA twigs - real name Tahliah Debrett Barnett - was seen without her distinctive engagement ring as she sat front row at the Christopher Kane London Fashion Week show.

Fans also spotted that FKA was not wearing the ring on August 1, which immediately prompted questions about a break-up from observers.

Just weeks before that, the British actor said that he was 'kind of engaged' to girlfriend FKA during an interview with Howard Stern.?
