After about a year and a half together, Whitney Port and Ben Nemtin have gone their separate ways, two insiders confirm to Us Weekly.

The Hills and The City star, now exclusively a fashion designer, quietly made the announcement herself at an event Saturday, reports say.

"I don't have a boyfriend," she said, calling single life "definitely different, but I'm enjoying my time focusing on work and keeping busy."

Port (whose exes include The City co-star Jay Lyon and E!'s Ben Lyons) began dating Ben Nemtin of MTV's The Buried Life in February 2010.

Last summer, a pal said the duo were "totally in love." Port's former boss Kelly Cutrone said that "Ben is delicious, lovely and very smart."

"Things are standing at a fine point," Port gushed last September.

Too bad that couldn't last. Here's wishing them both the best.

Whitney Port and boyfriend Freddie Fackelmayer have called it quits.

In related news, Whitney Port was apparently dating some dude named Freddie Fackelmayer. Judging from the picture below, that's unfortunate for her.

Liz Gateley, executive producer of Whitney's reality show The City, broke the news Tuesday at the Seventeen magazine celebration of Port's October cover.

The two had been dating since June, and viewers will still get to see their relationship play out through the upcoming season of The City. That goodness.

Gateley notes that reality-show couples such as Jon and Kate Gosselin don't seem to have much staying power, and this was a big reason for the breakup.

That or the network mandated suggested she fictitiously date some d-bag named Freddie Fackelmayer and she called it off the second she was done filming.

This is Frankie Fackelmayer. He dated Whitney Port, evidently. No word if his obvious love of fake tanning led to their breakup. Orange is a really normal skin tone.

"It's hard to have a relationship on camera because you have so many opinions coming in and out," Whitney Port said. "It takes away some of the mystery."

"But," the gorgeous 24-year-old City girl adds, "I don't necessarily think that it's a curse. I think there are some relationships that had to have lasted."

Totally. The Bachelor has produced so many ... hmm, never mind.

Whit previously dated Jay Lyon, who is said to have left the show after he couldn't handle girls writing negative things about him on celebrity gossip blogs.

Yes, we're serious.
