Tweens the world over aren't necessarily broken up about the latest development in Max George's personal life.

The Wanted hottie has split from his girlfriend of nearly two years, British soap star Michelle Keegan.

"[Max] and Michelle are no longer together. They have been separated for a number of weeks, but hoped to keep this a private matter," George's rep told MTV News U.K. in a statement Monday. Keegan's rep weighed in as well: "I can confirm that the relationship has recently ended," she said.

Both camps felt compelled to release official statements after the boy bander, 23, was photographed kissing a mystery girl during a trip to a nightclub last week.

Keegan and George began seeing one another in December 2010; George popped the question in April 2011, though they broke off their engagement earlier this year because of their jam-packed schedules.
