The Sun reports that Rita flew out to LA before ‘X Factor’ auditions started two weeks ago to hold summit talks with the green-haired son of fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger, but after she returned to the UK, they failed to working through their issues, and called time on the relationship.

A source said: “Rita and Ricky found it difficult to continue their relationship due to their ongoing work commitments.

“They both tried to make it work but their schedules made it difficult. They are on two different sides of the Atlantic and Rita is going to be based in the UK for the next five months.”

While The Sun say the split was “amicable” and “they remain friends”, The Mirror paints a very different picture.

Their insider claimed that things between the pair had been “increasingly strained”, adding: “As Rita’s star has risen, things had been frosty for some time.”

They also said that Ricky had grown jealous of her showbiz lifestyle.

“Rich became a bit uncomfortable about her meeting lots of other successful and good looking people in her A-list circle, and it became a real sore point between them,” the source said.

“Everything came to a head, and Rita decided the relationship couldn’t go on any longer.”
