Dakota Johnson’s Fifty Shades of Grey character Ana Steele may be the object of Christian Grey’s undying love, but her real-life relationship to Matthew Hitt is over.

Johnson’s life has undergone a massive change since Fifty Shades of Grey. She’s rocketed to stardom, and her schedule has gotten really busy.

Apparently, the up and coming actress’ life has gotten too busy for her boyfriend, Us reports: "It wasn’t something that [Hitt] wanted to be a part of."

Matthew Hitt is a Welsh model/singer/songwriter who fronts the NY based indie-rock band the Drowners. He and Dakota split-up sometime over the holidays.

Luckily, it "wasn’t a bad break." Let’s go ahead and assume that Hitt is going to be fine. He’s a model, a singer, and probably has a super-sexy Welsh accent.

So, for those of you keeping score at home on Dakota Johnson’s love life …

She was at the SNL 40 celebration last week, where she lobbed a question at Jerry Seinfeld. No friction there. And now Johnson’s set to host the next episode of SNL as well.

So she’s obviously not sweating her recent breakup so much that it stops her from being funny. We’ll just have to wait and watch what happens.
