Scratch Reggie Bush and Kim Kardashian from those lists of star athletes and their celebrity galpals. According to reports on Usmagazine.com and People.com, they’ve split up.
The New Orleans Saints running back, 24, and curvaceous reality-show star, 28, had been dating since April 2007. Kardashian, of the E! Network’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” attended several Saints games in the Superdome the past two seasons.
“Nobody cheated. This is just a case of conflicting schedules and their lives going in different directions,” Usmagazine.com quoted a source close to the couple. “It was a totally mutual decision.”
“They were the cutest couple,” People.com quoted an anonymous source. “They loved each other so much but they hardly saw each other.”
The couple’s status has been the subject of conflicting reports of whether they were engaged. “I am not engaged!” Kardashian wrote on her Web site in June. “The rumors about me picking out my ring already are also not true! I don’t know where all this comes from!!”
A Kardashian spokesman confirmed the breakup, the two Web sites reported. Bush, the 2005 Heisman Trophy winner from USC, is scheduled to report to training camp with the Saints on Thursday.
