Paula Abdul, Jeff Bratton call it quits

She;s a single lady again

Mrs. Carter: Maybe now Simon and Paula can finally hook up – We can dream.

Paula Abdul and her boyfriend, Jeff Bratton has decided to call it quits after being together for just over a year and a half.

Although the couple called off their relationship in November of last year, news of the break up has just surfaced now. Bratton spoke candidly to People Magazine about the end of their romance saying that it was amicable and explaining that work obligations for both sides were starting to take up too much of their time leaving little time for them to spend together.  He said;

“Paula and I split in November. It was an amicable thing. But between the final months of X Factor and my responsibilities with [my label] Cascine, there was little time for us. We’re still close, and I’ll always be grateful for the time we shared as a couple.”

Abdul and Bratton originally met during a flight in 2010 and split their time between New York where Jeff lives and Los Angeles where Paula has her home.  The couple kept their personal life fairly private, but they did step out to a few events together over the course of their relationship.

When you have a demanding job it’s always important to set out time for your partner, otherwise the relationship is likely to end.  As with anything, relationships need nurturing too.
