Paula Abdul and boyfriend split

Singer and TV personality Paula Abdul is a single woman after splitting from her boyfriend.

The X Factor judge and record label owner Jeff Bratton decided to call off their relationship because their busy schedules were keeping them apart.


Bratton confirms to People.com, "Paula and I split in November. It was an amicable thing. But between the final months of X Factor and my responsibilities with (record label) Cascine, there was little time for us. We're still close, and I'll always be grateful for the time we shared as a couple."


The couple began dating after meeting on a flight in 2010.
