(Newser) – One of Hollywood’s longstanding non-married power couples has called it quits—but no, it’s not Brangelina. Charlize Theron split with boyfriend of nine years Stuart Townsend after realizing they were “more like brother and sister than lovers,” a source tells the Daily Mail. Theron, the (much) more successful of the two, has not been wearing the commitment ring she was previously never seen without.

“Charlize has never made a big deal of it, but the truth of the matter is that she has been the major breadwinner,” adds the source, who says the actress is living in the couple’s Hollywood Hills home while Townsend has moved to their Malibu beach home. “She truly loved Stuart but the relationship ran its course. He is heartbroken but she is insisting it is all over.”
