Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas have reportedly broken up after almost a year of dating.
The duo, who were first linked in early 2020, ‘mutually and amicably’ decided to go their separate ways, it was reported on Monday.
Several sources confirmed the split to People, with one insider revealing that Ana, 32, didn’t want to be tied to Los Angeles, where Ben has to be based for his kids.
‘Ben is no longer dating Ana,’ the source told the publication. ‘She broke it off. Their relationship was complicated. Ana doesn’t want to be Los Angeles based and Ben obviously has to since his kids live in Los Angeles.’

Another insider added that the split was mutual and ‘completely amicable’.
They told the publication: ‘They are in different points in their lives; there is deep love and respect there. Ben continues to want to work on himself. He has three jobs lined up and he’s a solid father at home. They are both happy with where they are in their lives.’
Additionally, UsWeekly quotes a source who revealed: ‘Ben and Ana were moving in different directions in their lives and stopped seeing eye to eye. The two couldn’t work through their differences and have decided to end their relationship.’
The couple appeared to be getting more serious in recent months. Over the summer it was rumored that Ana, 32, had moved in to the Gone Girl star’s Pacific Palisades home after putting her Venice, California property on the market.

In August, she was spotted moving her things into Ben’s property from her Venice home.
The Cuban born actress was even seen flashing a diamond ring on her hand as she joined Ben for some reshoots of their movie Deep Water in New Orleans in November.
But it seems the ring was simply a prop for the movie, as the actors play a married couple in the Adrian Lyne-directed psychological thriller.
The actors met on the set of same movie when production kicked off in November 2019.
They were then spotted on a romantic getaway to Ana’s native Cuba in March 2020 before heading to Costa Rica and getting back to Los Angeles just before the lockdowns started.

Ben was previously married to Jennifer from 2005 to 2018 and they have a built a solid co-parenting relationship in recent years, with the actress also supporting Ben with his sobriety.
Before meeting Ana, Ben was in a relationship with SNL producer Lindsay Shookus from July 2017 to August 2018. They reunited in February the following year before ending things for good in April 2019.
The actor also dated model Shauna Sexton briefly in 2018.
In February 2020 the Good Will Hunting star talked about his desire to meet someone special.
‘I would love to have a relationship that is deeply meaningful and one to which I could be deeply committed,’ he said during a Good Morning America interview.
All smiles: Ana shared this photo of the couple in August
‘Five years from now Ben Affleck is sober and happy and sees his kids three-and-a-half days a week and has made three or four movies that are interesting to him. I directed two [movies] that he is hopefully proud of and is in a healthy, stable, loving, committed relationship.’
The movie star has been open about his lifelong struggle with alcoholism and had been to rehab several times over the years. He completed his last stint at a treatment facility in October 2018 and wrote about it on social media.
‘This week I completed a 40-day stay at a treatment center for alcohol addiction and remain in outpatient care,’ the post read.
‘Battling any addiction is a lifelong and difficult struggle. Because of that, one is never really in or out of treatment. It is a full-time commitment. I am fighting for myself and my family.’
A year later he admitted to suffering a relapse when he was spotted, clearly intoxicated, falling over while leaving the UNICEF masquerade ball in LA.
‘It was just a slip, I’m not going to let it derail me.’ he said at the time.
