Rapper Bow Wow, R&B Singer Ciara End Relationship

Rapper Bow Wow and R&B star Ciara have ended their relationship after dating for nearly a year.

The couple recently parted ways confirmed Ciara's spokesperson, Tracy Nguyen of 5W Public Relations.

"I cannot comment on the reasoning, but can confirm that Ciara and Bow Wow have recently split," Nguyen told AllHipHop.com.

Sources stated that the break up was the result of Bow Wow allegedly being spotted with another girl in Los Angeles last weekend.

The break up comes on the heels of rumors that the Atlanta-based couple were engaged, after Ciara was seen several times sporting a large diamond ring on her left hand's ring finger.

With the release of their song "Like You," the second single from Bow Wow's Wanted album, the couple continued to fuel speculation of their dating status.

The duet reached the number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Representatives for Bow Wow were not available as of press time.
