Chris Pine and Dominique Piek ended their romance, Us Weekly reported. A source told the site that the "Star Trek Into Darkness" actor decided to split from his Sports Illustrated model girlfriend "a while ago." Another source added that it was a decision Pine and Piek made together.
The source said, "It was a mutual call. They both needed their space." The source then explained that the relationship didn't work because of the pair's busy schedule, saying, "She has been very busy with her modeling work and traveling. He's got Star Trek and his other projects keeping him busy."
"It's hard for two people at their age and on their level. They'll both be just fine, though," the source continued and insisted that the breakup wasn't a big deal for both parties as they now would have more time to focus on their career.
Pine and Piek went public with their relationship when attending the 2012 Cannes Film Festival together. The couple walked hand-in-hand at the opening night gala in France last year. However, both Pine and Piek were tight-lipped about their relationship.
Prior to dating Piek, Pine was linked to the likes of Olivia Munn and Audrina Patridge. Last November, the 32-year-old actor reportedly visited Piek's hometown in Capetown, South Africa and "stayed with her parents" in the country. As for Piek, the 26-year-old model dated professional baseball player C.J. Wilson and they split back in 2010.
