"It just ran its course," the source said. "He was never something serious."
A source also confirmed the split to People magazine. A rep for Dawson did not respond to the publication's request for a comment.
Dawson, 38, and Andre, 34, first made their relationship public on Valentine's Day 2016 with the comedian sharing a now deleted tweet in honor of Dawson.
"The undisputed most gorgeous being on the planet," Andre said at the time. "I love u bb #HappyValentinesDay."
Dawson, in September, shared a series of throwback photos featuring herself and Andre in the hospital together on Instagram after she recovered from an emergency surgery from a ruptured cyst on her ovary.
"What a difference a year makes... This weekend marks a year that I had to get emergency surgery to stop internal bleeding from a ruptured cyst on my ovary. It was the first time I told [Eric] that I loved him (and very much not the last). Thankful for his care and all of the doctors and nurses and staff at the Desert Regional Medical Center," she said.
