The 25-year-old actor and 27-year-old Sports Illustrated model announced the split on Instagram.
“I wouldn’t normally do this as I like to keep my life private, Despite what may be written, Marloes and I split up due to her being a crazy hot supermodel and her and my work just keeping us apart,” Alex wrote. “It was a mutual decision, We are incredible close and love each other tremendously !!! We are best friends and who knows what the future holds. #shewillalwaysbefamily #factisgreaterthanfiction”
Marloes wrote, “Despite of what some papers may say, Alex and i split due to our busy schedules. It’s sadning to read these negative articles since we are very close and love each other dearly! So we took it into our own hands to say it was a mutual decision, we are best friends and will always remain each others family. #loveisalwaystheanswer”
Alex and Marloes started dating back in April 2014.
