Julianne Hough is getting help from her famous friends after her recent breakup with boyfriend of almost three years, TV and radio personality Ryan Seacrest.

The famous couple has decided to call it quits after Seacrest’s “American Idol” busy work schedule and Hough’s blossoming movie career have been keeping them apart. According to People, the duo is currently living separately but still remain close friends.

Reps for both Hough and Seacrest, 38, declined to comment.

After news broke, Hough, 24, tweeted the message “It gets better” to her followers on Friday followed by a group picture of her with “Vampire Diaries” star Nina Dobrev, stylist Riawna Capri and two others with the message, “Beachin with my bitches…” and “#friendsarethebesttherapy” on Saturday.

Hough was spotted with Dobrev and “The Big Bang Theory” star, Kaley Cuoco, the following day at a Sacremento Kings-L.A. Lakers Game.

The breakup comes mere days after $100k of jewelry were stolen from Hough's Mercedes at an apartment complex in Los Angeles. All of the items taken, including one $50,000 watch, were presents from Seacrest.

In January, Seacrest recently discussed Hough to Chelsea Handler of “Chelsea Lately” while promoting season 12 of “American Idol.”

“She’s so beautiful. Stunning, stunning. She is phenomenal. She is the best part of every day,” said Seacrest, who admitted to wanting to marry and start a family with his then girlfriend.

The split may be definite after the “Dancing with the Stars” alumni told Self earlier this month that she doesn’t second guess her decisions.

“I don’t second-guess myself. Whatever decision I make is the right decision because I make it be the right decision. I could say, ‘Oh, I probably shouldn’t have done that,’ but screw that. I’ve got to learn from it,” said Hough.
