John Newman announces a split from his girlfiend


Singer John Newman has revealed he’s split from girlfriend Ella Eyre during an interview with Lincs FM.

It comes on the day before Ella finds out if she’s won the Brits Critic’s Choice Award for 2014. She’s made it to the shortlist of three, which also includes Sam Smith and Chloe Howl. Both Adele and Emeli Sande are previous winners of the accolade.

John Newman told Lincs FM's Eddie Shaw “We’re not together anymore. The timing’s typical as well because everyone’s telling me I’ve done really well for myself with her reputation growing thanks to the Critic’s Choice nomination. 

To see her doing so well for herself is brilliant, and has put a massive smile on my face as I’m so proud of her.”

John Newman sang in front of Prince Charles at the Royal Variety Performance recently, and will be the only performer to play live at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year ceremony this Sunday evening.
