Natalie Portman and her musician boyfriend Devendra Banhart have split up, a source close to the singer has confirmed
Natalie Portman and Devendra Banhart have reportedly split up.
'The Other Boleyn Girl' star - who first started dating the folk singer in March after starring in the music video for his single 'Carmensita' - has decided to call time of their relationship, despite moving from New York to Los Angeles to be with Devendra.
A source close to the musician told In Touch Weekly magazine: "Natalie and Devendra have broken up. They will remain friends but need some space and time away."
In April, Natalie, 27, and the bearded singer, who is also 27, were photographed kissing and holding hands as they strolled through the West Village wearing matching black coats and sunglasses.
Natalie - who has previously been romantically linked to a host of actors including Jake Gyllenhaal, Zach Braff and Gael Garcia Bernal - recently vowed to never marry.
She explained: "I'm into monogamy. But I'm not really into marriage. I sort of hate the legal aspect of it. What does the state have to do with it?"
