Bella Thorne and Gregg Sulkin have split up.

Gregg, 24, and Bella, 18, had been dating for over a year but have decided to end their romance because of their busy schedules.

They told PEOPLE in a joint statement: "After much thought and soul-searching, we have made the difficult decision to end our relationship. We will always love each other and have a deep respect for one another, as we have each grown to be better people because of our time together. Our schedules made seeing each other difficult, and we decided that for now this would be best."

'Wizards of Waverly Place' star Gregg and 'The Duff' actress Bella were friends for some time before they started dating.

When they first got together, a source said: "They have known each other for years and spend a lot of time together. They treat each other with a great deal of respect and are really enjoying each other's company."

Bella and Gregg celebrated their first anniversary in May and Bella shared a video of them on Instagram to celebrate.

She wrote: "HAPPY ONE YEAR to this handsome man I'm lucky enough to call mine. @greggsulkin took me skydiving today and I thought I was gonna s**t my pants for sure but I didn't think...I think ;) #couples #boyfriend."
