That Carrie Underwood and Chace Crawford have split, it's no longer a secret. But that the former couple called it quits digital style, over text message, that was something new the country crooner has just revealed publicly.
Spoke about her romance with now ex-boyfriend Chase to Extra at the taping of "Idol Gives Back" in Hollywood Sunday, April 6, Underwood did reveal that she and the young TV star parted ways over text messages. "We're both fine. We broke up over text. It's like 'peace out,'" so she said.
Insisted the split wasn't a tearful confrontation, but a joint decision, Underwood went on telling the U.S. television show, "It just didn't work. We both knew it didn't work and [had] no hard feelings at all whatsoever." She then added, "I haven't talked to him in awhile but, I mean, I don't dislike him. So it's no big deal."
Underwood, furthermore, also revealed that her high profile relationship was made harder by fame. "It's difficult while you're dating because people always make a lot bigger deal of things than they actually are," she told Extra. "Then when you break up with somebody and then like two months later it comes out and it's like you're rehashing old stuff. I don't know what that's all out now."
Underwood and Chace sparked rumors of a romance October last year. The former American Idol winner even had spent Thanksgiving at Chace's parents' home in Dallas and part of her Christmas break with his relatives.
"His parents are fond of her ... they believe 'Carrie Crawford' would be a great addition to the family!" an insider told US Weekly Magazine back in December.
As for Chace, it appears that he found the split a bit harder as his sister Candice Crawford told People last week, "He was upset about the breakup. It's always hard when you lose a relationship."
