Nadine broke the news to fans on Twitter yesterday, revealing she and the sporting star went their separate ways ‘a few weeks ago,’ but are planning to remain friends.
'A few weeks ago Jason and I broke up,’ Nadine wrote. 'We are great friends and decided we are better this way. I'm in NYC working & I love all your support. X’
Despite dating Jason for nearly two years, the singer didn’t seem overly concerned by their break-up.
'Aside from that, I am having a wonderful time with friends here,’ she later added, alongside pictures of herself enjoying New York nightlife.

Asked by Scott if she was wearing an engagement ring, the Irish star replied: 'Yes, that is an engagement ring. It happened last week.’
