Ellie Goulding and her boyfriend Dougie Poynter, who were reunited after a brief split in December, have again parted ways. The couple, who have been together for two years, has split again by their busy careers.

The 29-year-old singer, who is now on a world tour, has dates all over Europe in March. She will then head to the North American leg of her tour in April, where she will be stationed for three months. The “Love Me Like You Do” hitmaker recently enjoyed a two-week break from her work.

She made an appearance at the Brit Awards, but 28-year-old Dougie was noticeably absent. “They are finding it hard to spend time together as Ellie’s music career takes her all over the world and she is pulled in different directions. Dougie is trying to make it in Hollywood as an actor and they are drifting apart,” a source told Daily Mirror.

The McFly singer, 28, has been trying to make an entry into Hollywood, and is currently in Los Angeles. Dougie, who wants to become an actor, has his eyes set on theatre. A source told Sun earlier that the musician wanted to do acting from a long time as he knew that music will not be for a long time.

The insider added that he has taken lessons to grasp the basics after Ellie told him to go for it. Meanwhile, it has been reported that Dougie is being sought after by agents as they think he would make a credible actor. The McBusted musician has been keeping his followers updated about his trips on Instagram.

Ellie in a recent interview on “Lorraine” spoke about her long distance relationship with Dougie. She was very excited about her boyfriend trying to make a name for himself in Hollywood, adding that he was working hard. The on and off couple always worked out their relationship and have been sensible.
