The R.I.P. hitmaker initially played down rumours she was dating Rob Kardashian this summer, telling Complex magazine: "It's not really a relationship. It's not that intense. He's a cool guy. We're close. We're good friends. I got his back and he's got mine."
Kardashian fuelled gossip in October by posting a picture of the pair kissing on his Twitter.com account, but now The Sun newspaper reports the pair has parted ways after struggling to find time for each other.
A source told the publication: "It's really sad - they really liked each other but with him living in L.A. and her over in London, it was becoming impossible to maintain a relationship.
"They'd only decided to go public with the romance a couple of months ago so as not to put any pressure on themselves but they've already split. Rob has now deleted everything on Twitter that reminds him of Rita."
