Michelle Williams and boyfriend Dustin Yellin split after one year

13 MAY 2014

Michelle Williams and her artist boyfriend Dustin Yellin have split after one year of dating.

The Hollywood star, 33, and her former beau, 38, recently called time on their relationship according to Us Weekly, but the cause of their break-up is unclear.

Michelle's last high-profile appearance was at the Met Ball earlier this month, when she was pictured walking the red carpet solo in a metallic, feather-printed dress.

It is understood that the actress and Dustin met while living in the same trendy area of Brooklyn. The blonde beauty and her daughter Matilda share a home in the same neighbourhood as Dustin's art gallery.

Michelle and Dustin, who always kept a low profile, were first romantically linked in May 2013. One of the few times they were snapped together was at the start of their relationship when Dustin was still Michelle's rumoured boyfriend. The pair were seen cosying up to each other in the streets of the Big Apple.

At the time, the star had recently split from her actor boyfriend Jason Segel in February 2013, who she had also been with for one year. The reported reason for them parting ways was distance, as Jason is primarily based on the West Coast.

Michelle has made no secret that her priority is her eight-year-old daughter Matilda, who she welcomed with her late boyfriend Heath Ledger in 2005. Heath, who was in a relationship with the mother of his child for three years, tragically died from a drug overdose in January 2008.

"Every time I really miss him and wonder where he's gone, I just look at her," said Michelle, speaking of her daughter's resemblance to the late actor.
