Horray for the single ladies... Nick Lachey has split from girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo - just weeks after the model/TV star denied the relationship was in trouble.

The pair has been dogged by rumours of an imminent break up since April amid reports Minnillo was romancing her Disaster Movie co-star Matt Lanter.

The couple, who began dating in 2006 after Lachey's divorce from Jessica Simpson, denied rumours of a split, with Minnillo earlier this month (Jun09) hinting of a possible engagement.

However, they have now confirmed reports their three-year relationship is over, as   Minnillo's rep tells FemaleFirst; "They have amicably split but remain good friends who still greatly care for one another."
