Selling Sunset's Jason Oppenheim, 46, has announced his split from girlfriend Marie Lou Nurk, 25, after 10 months of dating.

Sharing the news on his Instagram Story, Jason cited the distance between them (Jason is in LA, whereas Marie is based in Paris) as the reason for their breakup.

He added the pair remained close and thanked everyone for their support of their relationship.

Read his full statement here:

"While we still love and care about each other very much, the distance between us has proven to be too great a challenge to overcome.

"We remain close friends and continue to talk often and support each other and we want the very best for one another. We thank everyone for their support throughout our relationship."

Marie shared the same statement on her Instagram Story, accompanied with a picture of the pair together. Marie added a further statement on her Story thanking everyone for their messages of support since the breakup announcement.

Their breakup comes after Marie Lou recently shared a candid post on her Instagram Story about the struggles of long distance relationships.

She said in response to a follower question: "The truth is, we both knew from the beginning that I would have to move back because of my job, friends, and family being here.

"Long distance relationships can be tough, but we're both committed to making it work. We make sure to communicate regularly and make time for each other despite the distance."

Jason and Marie Lou met last year whilst both on holiday in Mykonos, and have been together ever since, with the couple splitting their time between Paris and Los Angeles.

Marie Lou joined Jason on the most recent season of Selling Sunset, where some of the cast teased the couple over their age gap (there's 21 years between the pair).

Marie is also expected to feature in the upcoming season seven, which has already begun filming.
