An American Idol sex tape? Not so surprising anymore.

Not when compared with the news that Prince William has split from his long-time girlfriend.

The breakup with Kate Middleton was “amicable,” according to a friend of the couple that talked to People magazine.

Kate, Will, Elizabeth

The prince, 24, and Middleton, 25, have been dating for nearly five years, after meeting at St. Andrews University in Scotland. A spokesman at the prince’s office at Clarence House says they will not be commenting.

“We don’t comment on Prince William’s private life,” the rep says.

Fortunately, The Hollywood Gossip does. And we didn’t see this break-up coming. Looks like Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy now have the only royally stable relationship.

Middleton and William reportedly had grown increasingly independent of each other since their university days. The prince is currently taking an armored corps commander course in Dorset, around 125 miles west of London, and it has kept him from Middleton and her new life in London.

Although Middleton has been “brave,” as one friend tells People, the media attention was an ongoing source of trouble. Earlier this month, she won a public apology from a British newspaper after it printed a photograph of her heading to work.

Wow. If that makes someone upset, imagine how Olivia Mojica must feel now that we have nude pictures of her.
