It's official: Adam Levine and supermodel girlfriend Anne V have split up

After two years together, the Maroon 5 singer and his Victoria's Secret model girlfriend have mutually decided to break it off. Anne confirmed the break-up news to People magazine saying:

Adam and I have decided to separate in an amicable and supportive manner. We still love and respect each other as friends. I wish him all the best.

What a nice break-up! Why can't they all be that civil?

Even though their break-up was civilized doesn't mean they didn't fight. Reportedly, the couple had a big fight earlier this year. Even though they almost broke up then, the break-up may still come as a shock.

The two had been dating since they met at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue launch party in 2010. Recently, Adam showed his love for Anne at the 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. He serenaded her on the runway. How sweet?!

I think the two will be fine separated, and their work should definitely keep them busy. Adam is in the band, Maroon 5 and also on The Voice. He also has his own fragrance. And as for Anne, she was in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for eight straight years! And she's been in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show three different times.

Sad news for the lovebirds...

Were you surprised by the break-up? What did you think of them as a couple?
