One of music's most loved up couples have reportedly decided to go their separate ways. American signers Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo, who have been dating for the past three and a half years, are now single.

However, the pair still care for each other very much and their split was mutually decided, according to E!News, who notes they plan to stay good friends.

Sparks, 24 and the 'Watcha Say' singer were first romantically linked in September 2011, but Derulo only confirmed their relationship four months later in January 2012.

The duo's last public appearance together was at last month's MTV Video Music Awards in which they both walked the red carpet in matching white outfits, and as usual gushed over each other when speaking to the media, with Sparks revealing she would accompany Derulo on his Talk Dirty tour.

The pair first caused engagement speculation when the 25 year-old singer proposed to his girlfriend in the music video for 'Marry Me,' which was based on their real-life relationship.

"It is about Jordin, actually," the singer told E! News in 2013. "And it's talking about how amazing it will be when I get down on one knee and it will be the greatest moment of my life. You can't fake anything because true love is true love, and that's the basis of our relationship."

If there were ever any signs of trouble in their romance, it would have been in August when Derulo admitted to E!, "Of course we have our problems just like anybody else."

But he still seemed very happy to be with Sparks. "But our relationship is a positive one and that's good for people to see in today's entertainment industry," he said.
