Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling 'remain close friends'

Ellie Goulding and Caspar Jopling will "remain the closest of friends" following their break-up.
The 37-year-old singer and Caspar, 32, have both confirmed their break-up - but the art dealer insisted that they'll remain good friends and they'll also make their two-year-old son Arthur their number one priority moving forwards.
Caspar - who married the pop star back in 2019 - wrote on Instagram: "Ellie and I made the decision to separate some time ago.
"Our immediate family and close friends have known for some time – otherwise we chose to do what we could to keep this private.
"Ellie and I remain the closest of friends, most importantly ‘co-parents’ to the best kiddo in the world, Arthur.
"This is the last I want to say on this – and please ask that you respect mine and Ellie’s privacy. Thanks a lot. Caspar."
The former couple tied the knot in York, England, in 2019, but the status of their romance had become a source of speculation over recent months.
Ellie took to social media on Friday (23.02.24) to announce their break-up, revealing that they actually "separated some time ago".
The 'Lights' hitmaker - who has recently been photographed with surf instructor Armando Perez - said on Instagram: "In light of recent stories, I feel I have been left with no choice but to let you all know that Caspar and I privately separated some time ago.
"We remain the closest of friends and have been successfully co-parenting with our sons best interests at heart. We are committed to protecting our family privacy and thank people in advance for respecting our wishes - we won't be commenting further. Thank you."
