Ellie Goulding Splits with Skrillex, What Went Wrong

Who ever thought the whirlwind world of EDM would end up in the glossy pages of US tabloids? Must be a sign of the ever-infiltration of the genre’s rise into the mainstream.

The house/trance sound had its own romantic comedy of a couple with matching haircuts this past year—singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding and dubstep DJ/producer Skrillex (real name Sonny Moore)—however, that storybook romance has come to end. Close the book--Ellie and Skrillex are closing this chapter on their relationship.

After nearly a year of dating, the British “Anything Could Happen” singer has split from the American “Bangarang” music producer. The reason? The dreaded three letters, no one, not even celebrity couples are safe from: L, D, and R. Long Distance Relationship.

Ellie is based in the U.K. and Skrillex is in L.A., and distance didn’t make the heart grow fonder. They left it all on good terms though according to the source who divulged the nail in the coffin “It’s over” to Us Weekly.

“There's no bad blood. Just a classic case of long distance being impossible. They hope to remain good friends.”

A second source chimed in, re-confirming that their “work schedules and distance took their toll. She’s fine though.”

There’s definitely truth to that statement: Ellie just released her album Halcyon this month, Skrillex is always working and collaborating now that he’s an in-demand producer and DJ. Anyway, let’s see how they remix their love lives in the future.
