After months of speculation, Avril Lavigne and Tyga just made their relationship status a little less complicated.

In fact, the "Sk*er Boi" singer and the "Rack City" artist have officially called it quits, a source confirms to E! News.

"They have broken up," the insider shares. "They are still really good friends, and have the utmost respect for each other but it just really did not work out."

Their split comes three months after Avril, 38, and Tyga, 33, first sparked relationship rumors while packing on the PDA at Paris Fashion Week. The duo's European getaway in March followed a few weeks after Avril's rep confirmed her breakup from fiancé Mod Sun

Though her split from the "Flames" singer seemingly came as a bit of a surprise to Mod Sun's team.

"They were together and engaged as of three days ago when he left for tour," his rep told E! News in a Feb. 21 statement, "so if anything has changed, that's news to him."

"Being surrounded by love every night on tour has been an absolute blessing," he continued. "I have the best friends in the entire world, thanks for always having my back. See you on stage."
