Chelsea Handler and Andre Balazs have called it quits after less than a year of dating, her rep confirmed earlier today. The couple first went public in May.

Handler told Piers Morgan Tonight about her relationship then:

"I'm seeing someone now, but, I have spent so much time exposing my personal life to everybody that I finally am in a situation where I feel like it's disrespectful to another individual ... I've learned to respect somebody else's privacy."

Handler, whose exes include 50 Cent, Animal Planet's Dave Salmoni and Comcast CEO Ted Harbert, explained, "It's not about me, 'cause I would like to make fun of him as much as possible, but he has kids, so I have to be nice."

When asked whether she was in love with Andre Balazs, she replied: "I have very strong feelings." Too bad they didn't last longer, but what are you gonna do.

Break out the vodka and the one-night stands again?

Despite having their murder convictions overturned and their freedom restored, Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito say their relationship can never be repaired.

"It's all over between us," an emotional Sollecito said during an interview, according to the Daily Mail. "I still have a great affection towards her but nothing else."

According to Raffaele Sollecito, their romance in Perugia, Italy, abruptly ended when they were convicted of murdering her roommate, Meredith Kercher, in 2007.

That will typically do it.

The pair subsequently spent four years in prison before the guilty verdicts were overturned last month. Don't hold your breath for a reconciliation, though.

"Our love was like a seed that was not allowed to grow because it was brutally stamped on," Sollecito said. "We were both victims of a cruel injustice."

"Our relationship was overcome by this tragedy."

Amid reports that Knox, 24, has a new boyfriend, Sollecito also said he has thus far declined an offer from Knox's family to stay with them in Seattle.

"I just want to build up my life as it was before and it will have to be piece by piece," he said. "She has suffered like me and now I just want her to be happiest woman in the world. Our lives are linked by circumstances but are very different."

Kris Humphries and Kim Kardashian who?!? Zooey Deschanel has break-up news of her own to share.

J. Crew president Jenna Lyons' divorce from Vincent Mazeau has been playing out in the tabloids, with conflicting reports about just what transpired between them.

Specifically, when Jenna began dating Courtney Crangi.

"They met at a fashion event several years ago ... at least three years ago ... and became friends," a source close to them told People. "They got together this summer after Jenna Lyons' [nine-year] relationship [with Mazeau] ended."

The source also emphasized that the Lyons-Crangi relationship "absolutely" did not break up the Lyons' marriage. A Mazeau source, however, says otherwise.

Jenna Lyons, Husband

The insider close to the fashion icon says Jenna Lyons and Vincent Mazeau still live together in their Brooklyn brownstone for the sake of their son, Beckett.

"They separated two years ago, and Jenna went through several months of trying to work it out. But two years later their problems got worse and worse."

A source close to Mazeau takes issue with that perspective, however.

"Like most marriages, they had their share of ups and downs over the years, but despite what's been reported in the press, they were not split before Jenna and Courtney began their relationship," the Mazeau source says emphatically.

Matt Barnes and Gloria Govan of the NBA's LA Lakers and VH1's Basketball Wives fame, respectively, have announced their split. They had a nice run together, mostly.

After calling off their engagement last year, but convincing the public they're still a couple, the two confirmed the breakup we ALL knew was coming this week.

Matt emailed out a statement today about the split from Gloria Govan (sister of Gilbert Arenas baby mana/Shaq mistress Laura Govan), saying the following:

Gloria Govan, Matt Barnes

“I’d like to address rumors surrounding mine and Gloria’s relationship. We've reached the difficult decision of ending our relationship and will be going our separate ways. We will work together to raise our sons and wish each other only the best.”

Gloria just tweeted her statement saying:

"I'm sure you guys are hearing a ton of buzz about Matt and Me breaking up, sorry to say... its true!!!!!! But the most important thing is focusing on my kids and continuing to have a good relationship with their father, thanks for your support!!!"

A heated Twitter exchange this month between Matt and a fan - who suggested Barnes should Govan or else someone else will - was a bad sign.

Responded Barnes: "He can have her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Classy. Meanwhile, she Tweeted Saturday: "If someone is dumb enough to walk away, be smart enough to let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you."

Well spoken, Gloria Govan. Well spoken.

Sammi Giancola and Ronnie Magro have broken up. NOTE: This is the October 2011 edition of the recurring story featuring the combative Jersey Shore couple.

"We are not together," Ron said at a Paranormal Activity 3 superfan screening in NYC.

Following their epic fight on Jersey Shore's third season, the pair reconciled during the filming of Season 4 Florence, and have actually been pretty mellow so far.

Ronnie and Sammi are done. Like, they are DONE!

"Being in Italy, in such a romantic atmosphere, brought us together," Ron said. "[It was] probably the highest point in our relationship." Apparently not for too long.

Jersey Shore fans all know the two have strong feelings for each other ... that often turn violent. We don't expect their co-stars will be saddened by this report.

"I love single Ronnie," Pauly D says. "When he's doing the relationship thing, I don't get involved. He's a different person with Sammi. She's a difficult woman!"

One he'll likely be back together with by Christmas.

Whose side are you on?

Dudley O’Shaughnessy has totally hung out with Rihanna a couple of times recently, but calling that "dating" would be premature, he says. Why? He's just too busy!

Despite going out with her more than once, Dud told The Mirror that he's too busy to continue anything with the singer. The British model/boxer, 21, tells the paper:

“We had fun ­together, but I don’t know when I will see her again to be honest.”

Dudley O'Shaughnessy, Rihanna

“My career is my biggest priority right now,” said the star of her latest music video, before adding: “I’d like to go to America soon ... but for work.”

The pair hit it off when Rihanna hand-picked Dudley O'Shaughnesssy to star in her "We Found Love" video. The two went out together in London last week a few times, and O’Shaughnessy also attended her concert at O2 Arena.

Too bad it was short-lived, they made a cute couple ... although somehow we're guessing based on the Esquire's new cover featuring Rihanna nude and proclaiming her the Sexiest Woman Alive, she'll have no problem moving on.

Shakira has reportedly dumped her footballer boyfriend, FC Barcelona star Gerard Pique, after he could not keep it in his pants. While dating Shakira. Amazing.

During his girlfriend's absences from Spain, Pique reportedly cheated on her with a younger woman. She somehow found out about this and they broke it off.

She and Gerard Pique have been dating for six months and quickly became "the most obnoxious couple in football," according to Spanish celeb gossip sites.

Shakira and Gerard Pique

They were constantly seen kissing and cuddling and were attached at the hip all summer. But evidently things went south, and she wasn't messing around.

Unlike most WAGs, Shakira doesn't need a soccer star for attention. She's the more famous half of that couple, not to mention older (34 to Gerard's 24).

Being cheated on with a younger woman couldn't have been fun to learn about, but at least the Colombian singer stood up for herself and dumped Pique.

We have some interns who are staff members, S. Just saying.
