Sarah Hyland and Dominic Sherwood have split after two years of dating. A source close to the situation exclusively tells Gossip Cop the breakup was “mutual.”

Hyland and Sherwood began dating in early 2015, but first became close on the set of the 2014 film, Vampire Academy. At the time, the actor and model was probably best known for appearing as Taylor Swift’s love interest in her music video for “Style,” which was believed to be inspired by the singer’s relationship with Harry Styles. Hyland, meanwhile, was in television homes every week thanks to “Modern Family.”

After making their debut as couple in February of that year, Hyland and Sherwood posed on red carpets together, supported each other at events, and frequently discussed their relationship on social media. When he was cast in a leading role in the Freeform series “Shadowhunters,” which premiered last year, Hyland became one of the show’s biggest online fans. She frequently live-tweeted the episodes with Sherwood by her side, and then scored her own role. Hyland’s character, Seelie Queen, just made her highly-anticipated debut last week, and also appeared on the season two finale a few days ago.

But while Hyland posted about online this week about her appearance, she and Sherwood haven’t referenced their relationship in a while. Now Gossip Cop has confirmed they have agreed to go their separated ways. “It was a mutal breakup. Sarah did not dump Dom,” Gossip Cop is told. As of yet, neither has personally commented on the split, and it’s unclear when exactly it took place.

Hyland has spent much of this year battling an undisclosed illness, which she spoke out about in May after being body-shamed for losing weight. Earlier this week, amid false rumors of lip injections, she revealed her mouth was swollen from steroid medication. Sherwood, who guest-starred on an episode of “Modern Family” last year, spoke highly of the actress as recently as last month. The former couple is pictured above in January.
