André Hazes and his girlfriend Monique Westenberg have ended their relationship. The couple has been apart for several months, the management of the singer confirms Saturday.

"With grief André Hazes confirms that he and Monique Westenberg are separated", a statement on behalf of the 25-year-old singer and 41-year-old Westenberg states. "The break already dates from a few months ago but they have done their best to go for it together. Unfortunately that was not the case. A terribly difficult choice that many tears have passed, but for now this is the best decision . Loving there is still plenty and will always stay there. "

Hazes and Westenberg were a couple since 2014. In October 2016, they became parents of a son whom they called André. In the summer of 2018 they took a relationship break, which lasted about a year.

The former lovers say they put their son first in the statement. "Their main goal in life is the happiness of André Hazes Jr. and everything will continue to revolve around it."
