They met and fell in love on the set of 2008’s hit movie, Slumdog Millionaire.
But it has now been reported that Freida Pinto and Dev Patel have called time on their relationship.
According to Us Weekly, the actors split some time ago after around six years together as a loved-up couple.
And his budding romance with Freida only helped to raise his profile over the years, but the two hadn’t been seen together for quite some time.
The British actor was noticeably absent at her 30th birthday celebrations in October, and in an interview earlier this year, she remained tight-lipped about her romance with the star.
In an interview for the June issue of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, the Indian beauty was forthcoming about many things, but managed to remain coy about her boyfriend, simply saying that she has become adept at protecting herself in the public eye.
However, in previous chats, the two had dubbed each other ‘soul mates’.
As Freida celebrated her big birthday in October, she was seen looking slightly worse for wear after having let her hair down while with friends in Los Angeles.
She had looked stunning in a floral dress and practically giddy with joy as she kicked her leg up high and danced against a parking meter after leaving her shindig.
Her British beau wasn’t there for the party, but the beautiful star hadn’t looked bothered as she stepped out without him.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Freida Pinto and Dev Patel and is awaiting comment.
