And so another great show-biz couple has bitten the dust.

Dancing With the Stars pro Derek Hough and American Pie actress Shannon Elizabeth have broken up after dating for more than a year. The two met when Elizabeth signed on as a competitor for DWTS.

The couple announced their breakup via—how else?—Twitter on Friday.

“Hi everyone, we wanted you all to know directly from us, that Shannon & I have decided to end our relationship as boyfriend & girlfriend…,” Hough wrote.

Added Elizabeth on her own Twitter account, “however, we love & care about each other very much & will remain friends & in each other’s lives.”

How sweet; even though they’ve broken up, they’re still completing each others’ sentences.
