Ryan Seacrest and “Safe Haven” star Julianne Hough have reportedly broken up after two years of dating, according to Us Weekly. So what brought on on the split? Apparently it was Seacrest’s nonstop work schedule as as a TV producer, host of “American Idol,” radio DJ and more. “Dude works all the time. He never sleeps,” a source close to Hough says. “It’s a lifestyle she couldn’t handle anymore. Work always, always came first [for Ryan]. She wants a more low-key life.”

For once, some good news in the world of celebrity relationships: Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman are reportedly back together after separating last fall, according to People magazine. “They love each other,” a friend of the couple says. “Always have and always will.” Their split stunned Hollywood, as the couple had been married for 30 years at the time of their split.

Miley Cyrus has an explanation for why she was spotted without her engagement ring recently amid rumors of trouble between her and fiancé Liam Hemsworth: The ring was off getting repaired. Cyrus responded to a friend on Twitter recently who was complaining about having to get her own engagement ring repaired, adding, “That’s the worst! I just had a similar situation except when it happens to me then everyone says my wedding is off.”

Apparently all couples fight, including Prince William and Kate Middleton. In the new documentary “Our Queen,” British Olympic boxer Anthony Ogogo reveals that Middleton confided to him that both she and her husband have a competitive streak that comes out particularly when they’re playing Scrabble, according to the Daily Mail. “She said when they play Scrabble they don’t usually finish a game, because somebody got in a mood and slammed it shut,” Ogogo says.

Morrissey has been forced to cancel the remaining dates on his current North American tour due to a “series of medical mishaps,” a rep for the singer announced. “Despite his best efforts to try to continue touring, Morrissey has to take a hiatus and will not be able to continue on the rest of the tour,” the statement reads. So far this year, those mishaps have included a bleeding ulcer that prompted Morrissey to postpone three concerts and a bout of double pneumonia earlier this month that caused the cancelation of another. The singer is also reportedly suffering from a condition in his esophagus linked to long-term acid reflux.
