LOS ANGELES, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Jordin Sparks and boyfriend Sage the Gemini have reportedly called it quits.

Sources told People the 26-year-old singer and 23-year-old rapper recently split after less than a year of dating. The couple were first linked in spring 2015 and confirmed their relationship in May.

"He makes me smile every single day," Sparks told the magazine in August. "He's just very low-key and down to earth as well. We don't have to always worry about getting up and getting ready or feeling like we have to."

Insiders told E! News the relationship "started off great" but that Sparks later started to have trust issues. Sage the Gemini, born Dominic Woods, alluded to problems in his personal life in an Instagram post in December.

"Mentally and physically I am weak," he wrote. "My imagination is a horrible place that I battle with in my relationship (being jealous) etc I say to myself maybe I should work out till I push evil thoughts out of me and ask God to shine light in the dark."

Sparks previously dated Jason Derulo for three years before splitting from the singer in September 2014. The couple seemed to be heading toward marriage before the breakup, and Sparks later admitted she was unclear why they split.

Sparks came to fame by winning American Idol Season 6 and released her third studio album, Right Here, Right Now, in August. Sage the Gemini is known for the single "Gas Pedal" and will release his second studio album, Bachelor Party, this year.
