Ashley Olsen and Justin Bartha

Actress and fashion designer Ashley Olsen has broken up with her boyfriend of two years, Justin Bartha.

Olsen, 24, and Bartha, 32, were even rumored to be engaged before news of their split hit. Ashley, who is the twin sister of Mary-Kate Olsen, was spotted hanging out on The Hangover set back in 2008 -- and shortly after, rumors spread that they were planning an elaborate $1 million wedding in the South of France.

Her publicist shot down the rumors though. "Contrary to several tabloid reports, Ashley Olsen is not engaged to be married," Nicole Caruso told People. "Ashley is dating Justin Bartha and they are very happy."

Why did the couple call it quits? Their publicist is keeping mum on the details of the split, however, Star magazine said an insider confirmed she was "tired of waiting for him to settle down."

In fact, there were reports he was partying hard on the set of The Hangover 2. "She wasn't surprised that he'd cut loose a bit after hitting it big," says the source. "But she didn't expect him to start acting like a jerk toward her."

Mary-Kate is also a single gal, having just broken up with her boyfriend, Nate Lowman. I think the twin sisters need their own reality show! Mary-Kate and Ashley Take Manhattan, perhaps?
