In a joint statement to People magazine, the couple explained: “After much soul searching and consideration we have made the decision to separate as a couple. We are, however, dedicated to remaining friends. There will be no further comment.”
And Sia had previously confessed she was disappointed they didn’t get to explore her native Australia, as fans were constantly following them and invading their privacy.
She explained: “It’s kind of disappointing because we can’t do anything. I’m kind of a bit famous. I didn’t realise I’m so famous.
It’s crazy but I’m thinking I might rock a [disguise]. I’ve got some plans. We would really like to get out but also the rain is pretty crazy.”
In fact, the singer revealed she occasionally feels haunted by the paparazzi. She explained how journalists are consistently waiting at the airport and other places where she might show up, which makes her feel like “prey.”
The artist explained: “It’s unpleasant. It makes me feel hunted. My friends were with me the other day when the paps were at the airport and it was like they all got diarrhoea and I had to explain … you go into fight or flight (mode).
You feel like prey and they’re the predator and you’re being hunted. Would you like to spend your life feeling like prey? Probably not … It’s just wanting to have a regular life, just like a regular person but still be able to make music and sing. But to do that without having to sacrifice having just a regular life, that’s all I want.”
Despite their breakup, Sia had once penned a song about the couple’s relationship back when things were better.
“It’s not really my jam although I did write one right before we got together I like to say is about us. I’m trying to pitch that to Maroon 5 or Bruno Mars. It’s called ‘Step By Step.’”
