Love Island‘s Eyal Booker has reportedly called time on his relationship with US model Delilah Belle Hamlin after two years.
The pair began dating in 2019, one year after Eyal appeared on Love Island.
Delilah, 23, reportedly split from Eyal, 26, before New Year’s Eve so she could go into 2022 with “a fresh start”.
A source told Mail Online that the duo ended their relationship amicably as they told the publication: “It was important to her that 2022 could be a fresh start and right now she wants to be single and focus on her career.”
The source explained that she experienced “difficult times” last year, but has since come out the other side “stronger than ever”.
Delilah and Eyal were incredibly loved up from the minute they began dating and in order to make their romance work the duo split their time between Los Angeles and London.
Delilah, who is the daughter of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ Lisa Rinna, first reached out to Eyal in early 2019 after her sister Amelia watched him on Love Island and thought they were incredibly similar.
After they began talking online she decided to fly to London to meet him – and shortly after the visit, he flew out to California and the duo attended Coachella together.
Their romance was then confirmed in May of 2019 after they were spotted kissing in Beverly Hills.
Although neither Delilah nor Eyal have confirmed their split themselves, it was on January 1 that Delilah reflected on the “transformative” year which had just come to a close.
She wrote at the time: “2021, you changed my life. You broke me. But thank you for pushing me to do things I would have never been able to do.
“Thank you for all the opportunities you’ve given me. Thank you for showing me disease so I could be at ease instead.
“Thank you to everyone who was on this journey with me. What a transformative year it has been.”
The pair continued on a long distance romance as they spent time apart while at their respective homes of London and LA.
While they often visited the places together, Eyal had recently shared his excitement to reunite with his girlfriend in the final months of 2021 after being apart for three months.
The pair were last seen out together on that trip in LA as Eyal shared a photo of them together on December 2.
Eyal remains in LA for the meantime, but just last week he said that the end of 2021 and start of 2022 had been a “whirlwind”.
He added: “The more we learn to pick ourselves back up from dark places the more prepared we are for the very uncertain and ever changing world we live in and all it throws our way.”
