The couple's relationship has always been kept slightly private.
The news of Diddy and Cassie's breakup has taken the internet by storm. Many fans were shocked by their split while other's took on the information with a sense of humor. Although the new status of their relationship has been made public this week, a source told PEOPLE that the breakup had taken place months ago.
The insider affirms "the decision was amicable and they remain friends." According to this source, Sean "Diddy" Combs remains single despite reports of his romantic link to Jocelyn Chew. If they are spending time together, their dates are held within the context of his being a bachelor.
Cassie Ventura is said to be focusing on her professional trajectory. Her singledom is allowing more time for the singer to hit the studio.
"Cassie is going to focus on her music and acting career," the source adds.
Combs and Ventura met after the singer was signed to his label Bad Boy Records in the early 2000s. Their romantic link came up in 2007 and their relationship went through some ups and downs until their eventual breakup this year. They both seem to take this new chapter in their life in stride. Cassie, for one, is looking quite fine.
