Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have split, People magazine confirmed Wednesday.

The couple began dating in 2006 after Lachey's divorce from pop singer Jessica Simpson. But in recent months, they have been subject to rumors of an imminent breakup.

Still, Minnillo had previously denied any reports of problems in the relationship, telling the magazine earlier this month that the relationship was "very much still on."

However, reps for both confirmed that the relationship was over.

Minnillo’s rep said, “They have amicably split but remain good friends who still greatly care for one another.”
