Little Mix star splits from long-term boyfriend

They were together for three years


Jade Thirlwall has split from her long-term boyfriend Jed Elliott.

The Little Mix star and The Struts singer reportedly called time on their relationship because they struggled to work around their hectic schedules.

A source told MailOnline: “Jade and Jed have decided to end the relationship.”

“There is honestly no big drama, it has just sadly run its course. They spent so much time apart as Jed is on tour constantly in the USA with his band The Struts.”


“And obviously Jade is super busy with Little Mix promo – and about to start a massive LM5 Tour.”

The last photo Jade posted with Jedd was on May 15, when she wished him a happy birthday.

She captioned the post: “Not ever seeing your boyfriend on his birthday kinda sucks. 4 birthdays in and still managing a long distance relationship is kinda amazing. i love you @jedstruts 💙 happy birthday pet.”


Back in 2017, Jade opened up about dealing with a long distance relationship.

At the time, the 26-year-old said: “It’s s**t – we never see each other. We’ve been together two years but it feels like we’ve only just started going out because we never see each other. It’s been a bit s**t not seeing each other I must admit.”

The news comes months after Jade shared a video of her reuniting with Jedd in the airport, after spending 103 days apart.

And just a few weeks before that, the songstress broke down in tears on stage, while performing a stripped back version of Only You.
