American Idol host Ryan Seacrest and his girlfriend of three years, Aubrey Paige Petcosky, have called it quits on their relationship.

A source close to the couple had told People that Ryan and the model had split, and Ryan's representative confirmed the news.

"After three beautiful years together, Ryan and Aubrey have mutually decided to part ways," the source told the magazine.

"They plan to stay in each other's lives as good friends and support one another's endeavors."

Aubrey subsequently fired back at trolls on Instagram.

"S/O to my haters, this one's for you," the 26-year-old captioned a video of herself drinking a glass of wine in a pool. "Happy #winewednesday."

Paige's video also included audio from an interview of Nicki Minaj, in which the rapper had stated, "I am fully aware of what y'all say about me, No. 1. And I don't give a f-ck."

Ryan and Aubrey went public with their relationship in May 2021 when they were spotted together celebrating Memorial Day in the Hamptons.

Ryan and Aubrey, who began dating in 2021, have made many public appearances together over the years -- including the premiere of Jennifer Lopez's documentary, Halftime, which premiered in June 2022.

However, the American Idol host and his girlfriend attempted to keep their romance private for the most part, except for a few sweet posts on social media here or there.

Ryan recently said on On Air with Ryan Seacrest that he was "proud" of Paige for coming up with a new wine game titled "Sippin on Something."

And when Ryan ended his stint as co-host of Live with Kelly & Ryan -- which now features Kelly Ripa's husband Mark Consuelos as her co-host -- in April 2023, Paige posted on social media, "Ryan, never have I ever met a more inspiring man... You make it look so easy, but the truth is there is just nobody quite like you."

"I am so beyond proud of you," she added. "Not just for your work ethic, but for your caring heart and the genuine love that you give to others."

Paige also called Ryan an "incredible man" on Instagram when they rang in 2022 on New Year's Eve.

Ryan has been hosting American Idol since its first season debuted in 2002. The show's currently-airing 22nd season just featured Ryan announcing the show's Top 10 contestants. He works alongside Idol judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan.

Ryan will also begin hosting Wheel of Fortune in September 2024 following Pat Sajak's retirement.

"I've been watching the show all my life," Ryan said, according to People.

"I think that this is a show that means so much to a lot of people. It's a part of their lives, they like to get together at the end of the day and try and solve the puzzles. And for me, it's a chance to give away cash and prizes and work with the legendary Vanna White."
