The 'Magic Mike' actor has parted ways from 27-year-old model Marloes Horst after almost two years of dating because of their busy schedules, but insists they will remain "incredibly close" and still love one another.

He wrote on Instagram: "I wouldn't normally do this as I like to keep my life private, Despite what may be written, Marloes and I split up due to her being a crazy hot supermodel and her and my work just keeping us apart.

"It was a mutual decision, We are incredible close and love each other tremendously !!! (sic)"

And the 25-year-old actor hinted the pair may get back together one day.

He added: "We are best friends and who knows what the future holds. #shewillalwaysbefamily #factisgreaterthanfiction (sic)"

Meanwhile, Sports Illustrated beauty Marloes shared her former lover's sentiments.

She wrote in her own Instagram post: "Despite of what some papers may say, Alex and i split due to our busy schedules. It's sadning to read these negative articles since we are very close and love each other dearly! So we took it into our own hands to say it was a mutual decision, we are best friends and will always remain each others family. #loveisalwaystheanswer (sic)
