Marc Jacobs and Harry Louis split

Setting a new precedent for break-ups

Breaking up on a Post-It is so ten years ago. These days, it's all about announcing your split via an artsy Instagram - or, at least, it is according to Marc Jacobs' other half-no-more Harry Louis.

The some-time Brazilian porn star has revealed that Louis Vuitton isn't the only split Jacobs is recovering from, posting a 'smashed' image of the two of them together at the weekend.

'So I would like to be the first one to share with you all the news...' ran the earnest caption.

'Me and Marc have decided not carry on with our relationship as boyfriends... The distance and lack of time because of work schedules aren't really something realistic, and he's such a beautiful and amazing person, that I think he deserve a bf who will stay at least in one of the cities that he leaves in... Also, I need that too...

'We love each other very much, and that it was a decision from both!!!! Every special minute we've spent together will be treasured, and a new chapter of our both lives has started... Both of us focusing in work, and make it work!!!!

'So, for those who were always supportive of us, please don't be sad, live goes on, to all of us... And for those who were praying that this day were coming, there you have... Marc Jacobs and Harry Louis aren't officially a couple anymore!!!!'

The couple were first linked in 2011.
