Paris Hilton and Cy Waits have called it quits.
Recent rumors that they hit the skids look like they were correct. After a year together, the ho-tel heiress and Vegas nightclub owner are done.
"They are broken up," a pal of Paris' says. "It's sad, she cares about him a lot and thinks he's a great guy but they really hit a rough patch."
The reality star and Waits met and stepped out in late spring 2010, shortly after her final breakup from former Hills star Doug Reinhardt.
Cy, who has a daughter in elementary school, "found it difficult to live his life with her in the spotlight and that's what caused their split."
With him based in Vegas and Paris in L.A., and entrenched in their own lives, they simply lost the spark in recent months and called it quits.
Sad, but hopefully for the best.
