The 'Glee' star and Broadway actor Theo Stockman have decided to call time on their 17-month relationship but are adamant the break-up is amicable.

A representative for Lea confirmed to E! News: "This is not a dramatic break-up, the relationship just ran its course. They are still friends and will always be friends."

One contributing factor is believed to be the amount of time Lea and Theo got to spend together as their busy careers kept them apart, with the 25-year-old actress shooting 'Glee' in Los Angeles, while Theo lives in New York City.

Lea recently revealed she loved being in a relationship because it made her feel settled.

She said: "I'm a relationship girl. I would rather be in a long distance relationship with him than not have a relationship at all."

She also revealed Theo reminded her of her father Marc as they had similar qualities such as a good sense of humor and caring nature.

She said: "My father makes me laugh - my sense of humor comes from him - but at the same time, I know he's going to take care of everything. I see some of that in my boyfriend."
