A representative for Paris Hilton has confirmed reports the socialite has split from boyfriend Cy Waits.
The blonde beauty had been dating the Las Vegas club boss for just over a year, but rumours emerged earlier this week (begs20Jun11) claiming the couple had parted ways.
A source told UsMagazine.com, "They are broken up. It's sad. She cares about him a lot and thinks he's a great guy but they really hit a rough patch."
And now Hilton's rep, Dawn Miller, has revealed the speculation is true.
She tells People.com, "I can confirm that Paris Hilton and Cy Waits have ended their relationship. It was a joint and amicable decision. They both have respect and care for one another and ask for you to please respect their privacy."
