Less than a month after publicly declaring her love for British rugby player Danny Cipriani on the front cover of a national magazine, Lara Bingle is single again.
Despite saying she was going to make it work, it is understood that the Sydney beauty has not heard from Cipriani since the pair holidayed in Bora Bora, Tahiti, at the end of last month.
"Lara was as surprised about the split as I am sure anyone else might be," Bingle's new manager Hermione Underwood confirmed.
"Unfortunately, sometimes things just don't work out as expected."
Bingle, 24, and Cipriani, 23, got together after a whirlwind courtship that began when she was a contestant on Dancing With The Stars. They tried to keep the romance private but went public after their Tahitian trip.
"I'm in love," Bingle told Who magazine at the time. "With Danny it's just so easy - he gets me and my life and I get his. He's really supportive of what I do."
Cipriani has spent the past few weeks in the UK but is expected to fly back to Sydney later this month. He's notorious for squiring beautiful high-profile women and then splitting with them.
He has previously been linked to Lindsay Lohan and Kelly Brook.
Bingle was sporting a new haircut - a classic break-up move. From what we hear, she has sworn off men for a while.
