Los Angeles - Adam Levine and Anne Vyalitsyna have split up.

The Voice coach and the Russian-born model have decided to part ways after two years of dating but Anne, 26, claims the couple still "love and respect" each other.

She said in a statement to People magazine: "Adam and I have decided to separate in an amicable and supportive manner. We still love and respect each other as friends. I wish him all the best."

A friend of the Maroon 5 frontman added to US Weekly: "He will always love and cherish her."

Didn't hit it off immediately

Adam, 33, and Anne first met at the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue release party in Las Vegas in early 2010, where Maroon 5 performed, but they didn't immediately hit it off.

Anne previously said: "He thought I was a stuck-up bitch and I kind of thought he was a douche bag musician."

Although the couple were rumoured to have had a giant bust up earlier this year, speaking in February, Adam said he was determined to make the relationship work.

He explained: "This is the most functional relationship I've ever been in. I don't want to screw it up."

Adam previously dated celebrities including Jessica Simpson, Maria Sharapova and Cameron Diaz.

He had a four-year relationship with former Vogue editor Jane Herman after meeting in high school and detailed his heartbreak over their split in Maroon 5's 2002 debut album Songs About Jane.
