Ellie Goulding Splits with Boyfriend Skrillex?

Ellie Goulding and her boyfriend Skrillex have reportedly called it quits after a year of dating.

“It’s over,” a source told US Weekly. “There’s no bad blood. Just a classic case of long distance being impossible. They hope to remain good friends.”

“It just happened. Their schedules are just too crazy,” another source shared with Us Weekly. “Work schedules and distance took their toll. She’s fine though.”

Ellie recently talked about how Skrillex influenced her in Time magazine, saying, “Yeah, we were good mates before we became a couple, and we’re both really big fans of each other. So, like, I play him my new stuff he plays me his new stuff, and it probably has influenced me subconsciously. And maybe my stuff has influenced him subconsciously. I don’t know. But he’s a very talented producer. He’s really good at what he does.”

Skrillex, Diplo & A-Trak Cover 'Billboard' Magazine

Diplo, Skrillex, and A-Trak take the cover of Billboard‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the DJ/producers, who have seven Grammy nominations among them, had to share:

Diplo (real name Wesley Pentz), on their success: “I know one thing – the major labels, the A&Rs, are very frightened right now. They see that things are in our hands in a lot of ways.”

A-Track (Alain Macklovitch), on the music industry right now: “It’s a time where all of us are able to rewrite the rules. Not to sound too cocky, but it’s like there are no more rules. There is a captive audience, and it’s hungry. It’s our time to be creative in how we feed it.”

Skrillex, on being recognized by the Recording Academy: “I never would’ve thought that would ever happen in my whole entire life, ever, because of the music I make. I still don’t understand. I play in Las Vegas and there are guys spending $50,000 on tables to see me. What I do is just weird music.”
