BLUE star Simon Webbe has ditched his glamour model girlfriend NATALIE DENNING, following reports she was dating him to raise her own celebrity status.

The ALL RISE singer split with busty blonde Denning - who is notorious for selling details of her famous partners to the press - after growing sick of her cashing in on his success, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.

Webbe says, "It was time for me to move on. I'm not with Natalie any more - it didn't work out. I'm happy to be single."

Denning's famous conquests include Hollywood star LEONARDO DiCAPRIO and model Calum Best.
