Ricky Martin and his partner Carlos Gonzalez Abella have split.

A rep for Martin says, “Ricky and Carlos have mutually agreed to end their relationship but continue to be united by friendship and their shared experiences.”

They dated for more than three years.

Last year, the performer told Vanity Fair of his relationship, “When I started the process with my sons, Carlos wasn’t in my life. He said: ‘I’m looking for a boyfriend, not a father with a family.’ And I said to him: ‘You’ve found a grown-up, full-fledged man.'”

Martin hinted at the breakup on Twitter on December 27, writing, “Changes oh changes.”

He welcomed twin boys through a surrogate in 2008.

The Latin singer was reportedly solo for his New Year’s Eve concert at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in Cancun, Mexico.
