Ellie Goulding Breaks Up With Skrillex, Announces Trip to South Beach

Continental drift is ultimately to blame for electronic dance music's latest heartbreak.

Had the continents not started shifting 250 million years ago, London might've only been a short domestic flight from Los Angeles, and Skrillex would still be dating Ellie Goulding.

According to The Sun, the dubstep messiah and electro-pop songstress have ended their nine-month relationship because dating, working, and living on opposite sides of the Atlantic is just too damn difficult to juggle.

"It's really sad, they were really good for each other," said an unidentified source for The Sun. "They just couldn't make it work. They both have successful careers and live in different countries."

Goulding calls London home and Skrillex reps L.A., a full country-and-ocean away.

But while they may live on separate continents, the two often work the same concert halls.

In support of her latest record, Halcyon, Goulding recently announced a four-week North American tour that kicks off at the Fillmore Miami Beach on Wednesday, January 16.

And if you've got a half-shaved head, an affinity for dubstep, and a home in London, Goulding just might fall in love with you.

Ellie Goulding. Wednesday, January 16. Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. The show starts at 8:30 p.m. and tickets cost $28 plus fees via livenation.com. Call 305-673-7300 or visit fillmoremb.com.
