Melanie Chisholm and Thomas Starr have ended their relationship after 10 years, the Spice Girls singer's rep confirms to the U.K.'s Daily Mail.

Dating since 2002, the British pop star and the property developer are parents to a daughter Scarlet, 3. Weeks before their split, Chisholm spoke of her dynamic with Starr in an interview with Good Housekeeping.

"I'd like my house to be run with military precision, but unfortunately someone else lives there -- a man!" she said. "So he scuppers that. We're probably a good combination, though, because he's very spontaneous and I like to be organized."

Chisholm, 38, also hinted that she was ready to make some serious life changes. "This year a new door has opened for me, and I'm curious to know what's going to happen next," she said. "But doing this feels like my life has gone full circle and I'm back to my original passion -- performing."

In June, Chisholm reunited with her former bandmates Victoria Beckham, 38, Geri Halliwell, 39, Emma Bunton, 36, and Melanie Brown, 37, to announce details of a West End musical based on their greatest hits. Named Viva Forever, the show previews from November 27 and opens December 11 at London's Piccadilly Theatre.
