RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the couple wasn't getting along recently and Ellen's distaste for the media was the final straw.
"Ellen didn't like the media attention and other things that came with the relationship," a source close to the couple divulged. "That's one of the main reasons they broke up."
According to an insider, the twosome broke up more than a week ago, but it wasn't until Friday that Jon confirmed the break up on his Twitter page.
"Recently, after much thought and discussion, Ellen and I have decided to end our relationship. It was a mutual decision and we are both happy and remain best friends," Jon tweeted.
"We both plan to move forward and focus on our separate lives. We ask that you please respect our privacy during this time."
So far, no word from Ellen except a denial, that was debunked when Jon spilled the beans on Twitter.
