In a statement on Monday, he said: ‘We would like to address the rumours of our split and confirm we have gone our separate ways.’

‘We have enjoyed a relationship together for over nine months; however, we do not want the same things in love and life. 

‘We appreciate all the love and support we have received through our journey.’

Saleswoman Belinda shared an identical statement to her own Instagram account and told Who magazine on Monday that splitting up ‘wasn’t an easy decision’ to make.

She explained that while the pair had always been a ‘team’, it became apparent they didn’t have the same ‘family goals’.

‘We tried to work through it and talk about what we could do about our differences, but it gets to a point when you realise you have to cut your losses,’ she said.

Belinda recently told Daily Mail Australia she was trying to keep herself distracted following their mutual decision to split. 

‘I have been keeping busy, seeing my friends and family. I am always focusing on the positives, as I am a naturally positive person,’ she said. 

The last time the couple were seen together on Patrick’s social media was on June 9, in photos and videos showing them having a stroll in a park.
