Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp have ended their relationship, according to reports, splitting up quietly after more than three years as a couple.
The actress, 52, and the rocker, 62, split recently.
"It was the distance," a source tells People magazine. "She lives in New York and he resides in Indiana. It was the distance that ultimately was the cause."
The pair, who were last spotted together in May, became an item in late 2010, shortly after Mellencamp's split from wife Elaine Irwin after 18 years of marriage.
They kept a low profile during the past three years.
"Small Town" singer Mellencamp had expressed his unhappiness at calling New York City home in a recent interview, perhaps dooming this relationship.
