Freida Pinto and Dev Patel ‘split’

Slumdog Millionaire co-stars Freida Pinto and Dev Patel have reportedly ended their relationship after nearly six years together.

Freida Pinto and Dev Patel have reportedly split.

The pair first met while working on Oscar-winning movie Slumdog Millionaire and their relationship quickly turned from professional to personal.

But now, after almost six years together, the couple have allegedly ended their relationship.

Despite the news only just hitting headlines, it has been claimed that Freida, 30, and 24-year-old Dev called time on their romance “a while ago”.

“Dev and Freida have broken up,” a source told Us Weekly. “They have been done for a while.”

While it is unclear exactly when Dev and Freida parted ways, the actress marked her 30th birthday without her beau back in October.

She instead saw in the landmark birthday alongside billionaire friend Siddharth Mallya.

And instead of being depressed about her newly-single status, Freida is said to be revelling in the dating world.

“Freida is single and happy,” the source added. “Friends are setting her up.”

Freida previously spoke of her love for Dev, admitting their shared experience of going from anonymity to worldwide stardom united them.

“I don’t think anybody—not even family or friends—can understand what the two of us have been through,” she told Interview magazine back in 2011. “As beautiful as it is, there are parts of it that just become a bit tiring to deal with. The paparazzi, for example, and not having privacy. He made a statement unknowingly once and he said, ‘Oh, she is like my soul mate,’ and we were not dating or anything back then, and it became this big hoopla. Like, ‘Oh my god! How could he have said that? What does that mean?’ But I guess he was right in a way; we are soul mates.”
