Comedian Chelsea Handler and her hotelier boyfriend, Andre Balazs, have parted ways after less than a year together.

No reason was given for the split, but Handler’s rep confirmed the breakup to Us Weekly.

In May, Handler discussed her relationship on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight,” saying that she had very “strong feelings” for Balazs.

“I’m seeing someone now, but, I have spent so much time exposing my personal life to everybody that I finally am in a situation where I feel like it’s disrespectful to another person,” she said.

Balazs, who CBS News reports is behind the The Standard Hotel venture, did not accompany Handler, 36, to Glamour’s Women of the Year awards on Monday in New York. But the couple was spotted together on Halloween weekend.

Handler’s exes include rapper 50 Cent, Animal Planet star Dave Salmoni and Comcast CEO Ted Harbert. Balazs was previously linked to actress Uma Thurman.
