Paula Abdul and her boyfriend, record label owner Jeff Bratton, have ended their relationship after being together for one and a half years.

The two, who met during a flight in 2010, split time between Los Angles, where Abdul lives, and New York, which Bratton calls home. "Paula and I split in November," People magazine quoted Bratton as saying.

"It was an amicable thing. But between the final months of X Factor and my responsibilities with my label Cascine, there was little time for us," he said.

Though the couple stayed fairly quiet during their relationship, they did step out in October to dance the night away at a Chad Valley concert in L.A.'s Echo Park neighborhood.

"We're still close and I'll always be grateful for the time we shared as a couple," he added.
