Rapper The Game has confirmed his romance with sultry singer/actress Mya is over - but the odd couple are determined to stay friends. The pair became close when Mya played the rap star's lover in his DREAMS video last year (05) and they briefly dated. The romance has since ended, amid false claims from The Game's rap rival 50 Cent that he bedded Mya. But the Los Angeles rap star insists he'll always be fond of his ex and claims the romance was doomed because both he and Mya are celebrities. The Game tells urban magazine Complex, "That s**t (dating a celebrity) has got its ups and downs. The up is you kinda feel hot, the JAY-Z and Beyonce thing. The downside is that you don't get to spend as much time with double celebrity s**t. "Then there's the thing that be switching up - you take my girlfriend now, I'll take your boyfriend... so I'm pretty much done at this point. I'll keep a regular b**ch. "But we still cool. We're good friends." Since splitting from Mya, The Game - real name JAYCEON TAYLOR - proposed to VALEISHA BUTTERFIELD earlier this year (06). He has since called off the engagement.
