Ke$Ha has split from her musician boyfriend Alex Carapetis - because the rock wildman began "acting like a woman".

The TiK ToK hitmaker began dating drummer Carapetis - who has previously toured with Nine Inch Nails - earlier this year (10) and the pair went public with the romance at the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago, Illinois in August (10).

But Ke$ha has now called time on their romance, as she's grown tired of the drummer's change in lifestyle.

She tells Complex magazine, "(We are) not so much (dating anymore). He had a Keith Richards vibe to him, but then he started acting like a woman, and I just can't handle that."
