Pippa Middleton splits with beau of three years Nico Jackson amid rumours of rekindled flame with ex-boyfriend
Pippa Middleton and her financier boyfriend have split up, as rumours continue to circulate that she is getting close to her ex James Matthews.
The 32-year-old sister of Kate Middleton has amicably parted ways with her boyfriend, Nico Jackson.
A close friend of the author and socialite confirmed to the MailOnline that no third parties were involved in the split.
Nico (37) is an investment banker who works for a hedge fund in Geneva, which is said to have put a strain on the relationship.
The couple have been together since 2012, and it was widely believed that a marriage proposal was on the cards.
Party-planner Pippa is still close to her ex-boyfriend James Matthews, whom she dated briefly in 2012 before meeting Nico.
Last week, tabloid pictures emerged of Pippa and the 40-year-old stockbroker entering a house in West London after taking his dog for a stroll.
Pippa exited the house next morning holding a bouquet of flowers.
Earlier this year, she also holidayed with James and her mother Carole in St Barts at the luxury resort Eden Rock which his family owns.
James is the older brother of Made in Chelsea reality star Spencer.
