Chloe Jasmine and Stevi Ritchie 'have split up'

Chloe-Jasmine and Stevi.

X Factor couple Chloe Jasmine and Stevi Ritchie have split up after more than a year together.

The singers formed a surprise relationship back when they appeared on the show in 2014 and went on to get engaged.

Last summer they took part in Celebrity Big Brother, making it all the way to the final together as the one housemate.

They had planned to get married this year and hoped for A-list guests to attend.

"We've just found out Simon Cowell's coming to our wedding," Chloe said following CBB last year. "We want him to wear his white T-shirt and rip it open, and wear sunglasses."

Stevi added: "I know our wedding date, and venue, which I can't really say. But it's July. It's really posh, prim, loads of celebs are coming. Simon [Cowell] and Cheryl [Fernandez-Versini] are the main ones. Top of the crop for them, they're gonna get everything."

However a spokesperson has confirmed today that the pair are 'taking a break' from one another, citing their 'busy work schedules' as the cause.

"Chloe and Stevi are taking a break due to busy work schedules," they said.

Although a source claimed to the Daily Mirror newspaper that the relationship had turned "toxic".

They alleged: "Chloe has decided to end her engagement. The relationship became abusive and volatile causing her to heavily relapse into alcohol abuse. She had to get out of the relationship. It became very toxic."

A source 'close to Chloe' hit back: "Chloe is fine, she is just taking some time apart from Stevi. These rumours are vile and completely without base."

Meanwhile, Stevi is quoted as telling the Daily Mirror: "We just have our ups and downs and Chloe has been feeling the pressure too.

"We've not split, we're just trying to sort our lives out."

As yet neither have commented on the break up on social media.

The split comes after news of Stevi launching his music career in JAPAN after signing a record deal with Sony Music.
