Say it ain't so folks!

After reports surfaced that there may be trouble in paradise involving Alex Pettyfer and Marloes Horst's relationship, the couple decided to set the record straight on Instagram Sunday morning.

"I wouldn't normally do this as I like to keep my life private," the Magic Mike star began in his post. "Despite what may be written, Marloes and I split up due to her being a crazy hot supermodel and her and my work just keeping us apart."

He continued, "It was a mutual decision. We are incredible close and love each other tremendously !!! We are best friends and who knows what the future holds. #shewillalwaysbefamily #factisgreaterthanfiction."

Marloes echoed the sentiments that there is no animosity between the two in her post that featured a photo of the duo looking in love on the red carpet.

"Despite of what some papers may say, Alex and I split due to our busy schedules," the Maybelline spokesmodel wrote. "It's saddening to read these negative articles since we are very close and love each other dearly! So we took it into our own hands to say it was a mutual decision, we are best friends and will always remain each other's family. #loveisalwaystheanswer."

Back in April 2014, E! News exclusively confirmed that the pair was dating. In fact, the pair stepped out for the first time while attending the Coachella music festival.

As for the future, Alex recently completed a new movie with Kevin Spacey titled Elvis & Nixon. In regards to Marloes, she was just featured in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue and continues to book plenty of modeling gigs.

Best of luck you two!
