Director Julian Schnabel has ended his tumultuous relationship with longtime girlfriend Rula Jebreal, according to U.S. reports.
The filmmaker started dating the journalist after leaving his second wife Olatz Lopez Garmendia four years ago (07), but their rocky romance hit the headlines several times after they were spotted arguing in public.
Schnabel apologised to staff at NBC studios in New York in March (11), after the pair had a bust-up before a TV show to promote their movie Miral, which Jebreal wrote.
And the relationship reportedly failed to recover - they split in June (11), according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.
A source tells the publication, "He ended it before the (art festival) Venice Biennale in June. Things became very difficult working on the movie together and promoting it together."
