As Zach Braff downed drinks, partied with friends and unsuccessfully tried to holler at Jessica Simpson at a West Hollywood hotspot, he looked like just another guy on the prowl.

He is.

A source tells Us Weekly that the 31-year old Scrubs star and Mandy Moore, his girlfriend of the past year and a half, have split.

“There was no drama. They were ready. Mandy was very young when they got together and she wanted to see what’s out there, now that she’s a woman,” says the source, who cited their age gap as the primary reason for the breakup. “Zach was mature, and realized it was time to let her do that.”

But not everyone close to the quirky Garden State star/producer is certain that he and Moore, the 22-year old actress and singer, are through with each other.

Christa Miller, Braff’s Scrubs co-star, said on the June 12 Howard Stern Show that the couple is still together.

Braff’s rep did not return repeated, harassing phone calls. Moore’s rep does not comment on her personal life. Moore’s rep also declined comment on why he/she does not comment on her personal life.
