It continued: "Saldana and Britton remain committed business partners as co-founders of fashion resource Respect of their privacy is appreciated during this time."

Twitter updates

Zoe is yet to make a statement regarding the split, but she took to her Twitter account to post a cryptic message.

She tweeted: "'You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.' - Buddha."

The brunette stunner has previously declared her love for the 35-year-old businessman, pointing out one of his qualities to be his "very independent soul".

She said: "I feel like the partners that stay at home, they have their lives, but they're the ones that are living with the real you.

"I think that they need to be recognised, every now and then, every 10 years, just come out in public - put him on the spot and just say thank you.

"He's a very independent soul. He understands what I do, but this is not what he fell in love with and that's what I love."
