Lana Del Rey's Longtime Boyfriend, Barrie James O'Neill, Denies Split

On Tuesday (June 24th) Lana Del Rey seemed to have confirmed that she is now a single woman.

The 28 year-old singer confessed to have separated from Barrie James O'Neill, whom she dated for three years, when speaking in an interview with Switzerland's 20 Minuten newspaper.

Lana called time on their turbulent romance because she apparently wants time apart to feel ''free''.

"We are currently not together. He is a wonderful person," she said. But there are some things with which he has to deal. I will not explain it in detail."

Adding, "This was hard on our relationship, I no longer felt free. We'll see how it goes."

But O'Neill, who is a former band member of Kassidy, has denied that their romance has come to an end when talking with TMZ.

A photographer for the gossip site caught up with the Scottish musician outside LAX airport on Tuesday night, where he adamantly refused to admit his relationship is done.

"It's not over, it's not over, don't believe what you read it's just stories man, bedtime stories," O'Neill said.

Lana's longtime love also revealed that they have been working in the studio together "for a long time," and praised her new album 'Ultraviolence', describing it as "ultra good."

The pair first sparked engagement rumors in July 2013 when they were snapped by paparazzi looking at properties in Los Angeles with Lana wearing a diamond ring on her left hand.
