Duffy splits from her boyfriend.

Welsh singer Duffy and her rugby star boyfriend Mike Phillips have reportedly split up for a second time. The singer reportedly broke up with the sportsman while he was in New Zealand for the Rugby World Cup earlier this month because they never get to see each other.

“It’s sad but it’s all over. Mike and Duffy went through a rough patch in May but they worked through it and spent the summer together between London and Wales. ”

“We were all hoping it would work out but they broke it off again recently and Duffy has said this time it’s final.”–a friend told the Mail.

The split is the latest twist in the 27-year-old singer’s 18-month relationship with her rugby star boyfriend, who starred for Wales in their semi-final defeat by France.

Duffy has previously spoken of her delight at being in a committed relationship with Mike, as she previously romanced some “idiots”, including Mark Durston, who claimed she wrote her first album Rockferry about him.

“I had a few other relationships but all of them were gracious enough not to come forward. So what does that tell you about him? It’s not a great character reference for someone. There are streams of idiots that I have loved and lost but now Mike is the guy for me.”

Too bad they had to split.
