The 31-year-old actor parted from his musician girlfriend - and rumoured fiancée - earlier this month after sources claimed the pair had "drifted" apart, but insiders now believe a reconciliation could be on the cards as the star is struggling to move on.

A source told People magazine: "They did break up. It was very recent. He is on a press tour and she is working on her new album. And I think it's timing. They've been all over the place. They have not seen each other in probably two months. It wasn't vicious.

"I think they will eventually get back together. He still loves her and I think that's the girl he wants to marry. It's not out of the realm of possibility that they could get back together and it's more like they are taking a break. It's not like he asked for the ring. She still has it."

The news comes after it was previously reported that their split came as Robert was "tired" of being unable to spend time with his beau.

An insider said: "They were almost inseparable for their first two years together. But in recent months they have really started to drift apart and have been spending less and less time together.

"Rob is tired of it, has called off their engagement and told friends they have split. With so much ­history between them, though, there are still strong feelings there. It's a difficult situation but things have become tough between them for some time and they both know they were no longer working as a couple."

The 'Twilight' actor and the singer, 29, had been dating since 2014, and rumours of an engagement between the couple had been circulating since 2015, when rapper T-Pain let the news slip.

Neither Robert or the 'Two Weeks' singer - whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett - had confirmed the speculation, but Robert did hint at the news in July this year.

When asked if he was in fact engaged to the beauty, he said: "Yeah, kind of."
