Lucy Hale is back to being a pretty little single liar. According to Us Weekly, the ABC Family star has already split from fellow country music singer Joel Crouse. They were first revealed to be dating in April, but two months later, a source told Us, "Lucy and Joel are done."

What went wrong? The source said it was just hard with the distance — distance tends to be the culprit in celeb relationships because they’re just rarely in the same place at the same time for very long. "She's working a lot on Pretty Little Liars and on music — she debuted at the Opry over the weekend. It got to be too much," the source added. Lucy just has “no time for love right now,” which sounds like a decent country song title.



Lucy, 25, and Joel, 22, were apparently never that serious, but it’s still a bit sad when pretty people stop being pretty together. She was previously linked to Revolution star Graham Rogers, but they only dated for a few months too. She previously dated The Secret Circle star Chris Zylka (and remember how well he took that breakup?).

Anyway, this all seems to be part of Lucy’s master plan for 2014. At the start of the year, she tweeted, “Happy new year everyone! Time for new beginnings, new dreams, new experiences and new ex-boyfriends.” Done and done. Who’s next?
