London: After five months of courtship, singer Peter Andre and his girlfriend Elen Rivas ended their relationship.

The reported break up was the result of the 'Mysterious Girl' hitmaker's hectic schedules, says Rivas who called off the relationship on the phone on Friday.

But the couple has denied reports that the split was a publicity gimmick since they share their management team, Can Associates, a news daily reported.

"I did adore Elen, she is so stunning. But the fact is I just didn't get to see her in the end," said the 38-year-old singer to a friend.

The pair were last seen together at the opening of Danielle Brown's cafe in March, but refrained from posing together, while Andre was spotted cosying up with other females.

The singer and Rivas began dating after meeting at their manager Claire Powell's birthday party last November in London.
