Michele breaks up with boyfriend

Lea Michele may not be singing with Glee after breaking up with boyfriend Theo Stockman.

The Glee star had been dating the 26-year-old Broadway actor for more than a year, but has decided to call it quits.

Lea's spokesperson confirmed the split to E! Online, saying: "This is not a dramatic break-up, the relationship just ran its course. They are still friends and will always be friends."

The couple, who preferred to keep their relationship under wraps, first went public when they walked the red carpet at the Time 100 Most Influential People gala in New York in May 2010, and were seen chilling out on holiday in Hawaii in July.

Lea - who reprises her role as Rachel Berry in the third series of Glee, airing on Sky 1 this week - has previously said she loves having a boyfriend.

"I'm a relationship girl. I would rather be in a long distance relationship with him than not have a relationship at all," she told US Glamour in 2010.

The couple are thought to have met on the Broadway theatre circuit, where Lea started her stage career before being propelled to fame from her role in Glee. Theo has starred in the Green Day musical, American Idiot, and has appeared on TV shows like 30 Rock and Nurse Jackie.
