“Changes, Oh Changes”: Pop Star Splits From Longtime Partner

They've mutually agreed to end their relationship.


Singer Ricky Martin has split from his partner Carlos Gonzalez.

“Ricky and Carlos have mutually agreed to end their relationship but continue to be united by friendship and their shared experiences,” a rep told People Magazine in a statement.

“Changes oh changes,” Martin, 42, tweeted before the New Year, which seemed to hint at the split.

He added, “So, you are waiting to be ready??? Watch out, you can be waiting all your life. #GODoit;0),”

In November, 2013, a source hinted to People that there was trouble in the relationship. “They’ve spent very little time together and have grown apart,” they said. “They’ve been on the outs for a while now.”

Martin spoke highly of her his former partner only last year, telling Vanity Fair that he was incredibly supportive of him.

“I have experienced wonderful things with my partner. Complexity, understanding, and, at the same time, freedom, not being afraid that your partner is judging you. That is what I have found with Carlos,” the pop star revealed to the magazine at the time.

“We’re going on four years together … When I started the process with my sons, Carlos wasn’t in my life. He said: ‘I’m looking for a boyfriend, not a father with a family.’ And I said to him: ‘You’ve found a grown-up, full-fledged man.’ I created a family structure and if he didn’t understand he’d ask me questions and we were on our way.”

The singer has 5-year-old twin sons, Matteo and Valentino, who were born via surrogate.
