A source told the publication: "Rita and Romain tried to make it work but they both agreed it wasn't meant to be.

"They remain close but it was simply impossible to maintain a relationship where they barely saw each other.

"And given both their busy schedules for 2021, the writing was very much on the wall towards the end of last year."

Rita has previously been linked to Rob Kardashian, Chris Brown, Calvin Harris and Rafferty Law.
