Kristen Wiig splits from Strokes drummer

Kristen Wiig and her rocker boyfriend Fabrizio Moretti are no longer an item.

Kristen Wiig and Fabrizio Moretti are no longer a couple, it has been confirmed.

The American comedienne and The Strokes drummer were together for 18 months before allegedly calling it quits.

Us Weekly reports the breakup “was very amicable and they will remain friends”.

The pair were first romantically linked in December 2011 when they were seen kissing at a Black Keys concert.

Kristen is notoriously tight-lipped about her romance, but she did mention how much Fabrizio enriched her life last summer.

“I’m happier than I’ve ever been and I feel very lucky right now,” she told the August 2012 issue of America’s Marie Claire magazine.

Fabrizio has previously dated Hollywood star Drew Barrymore. The pair enjoyed a five-year relationship after meeting at a Strokes concert in 2002.

Kristen was married to actor Hayes Hargrove from 2005 until 2009.

The 39-year-old funnywoman proved her comic chops as a regular on US sketch show Saturday Night Live from 2005 to 2012, and famously starred in and wrote Bridesmaids.

She has spoken previously about how important it is for her to have a fulfilling personal life.

“When you’re on your deathbed you probably aren’t counting the movies you’ve made,” she said in the Marie Claire interview. “You’re looking at the people who are around you and thinking about the people in your life, and you can’t lose how important that is because that’s ultimately where happiness comes from.”
