No more magic. On Monday, March 21, Alex Pettyfer took to Instagram to announce his split from girlfriend Marloes Horst. According to the Magic Mike star, 25, he and the 27-year-old model made a “mutual decision” to end their relationship after two years of dating.

"I wouldn't normally do this as I like to keep my life private," the hunky actor wrote. "Despite what may be written, Marloes and I split up due to her being a crazy hot supermodel and her and my work just keeping us apart.”

While hectic schedules ultimately pushed the pair apart, Pettyfer insists that he and the Dutch beauty aren’t cutting ties altogether.

“It was a mutual decision, We are incredible [sic] close and love each other tremendously!!!” he wrote. “We are best friends and who knows what the future holds."

The actor then added the hashtags "#shewillalwaysbefamily” and #factisgreaterthanfiction."

Horst also used social media to share her thoughts about breaking up with her British beau.

"Despite of what some papers may say, Alex and i split due to our busy schedules," she explained in a follow-up post. "It's [saddening] to read these negative articles since we are very close and love each other dearly! So we took it into our own hands to say it was a mutual decision, we are best friends and will always remain each others family."

As Us Weekly previously reported, sparks started flying between the two in April 2014.

"Marloes and Alex are very much a couple," a spokesperson from Horst's agency, Next Model Management, told Us at the time. "They met through friends and have been together seriously for a few weeks. It's early days, but they are really happy."

Prior to Horst, Pettyfer had been linked to Dianna Agron and Emma Roberts, and was engaged to Elvis Presley's granddaughter Riley Keough before calling it quits in August 2012.
