Ryan Seacrest has split from his on-off girlfriend Shayna Taylor seven years after they first met, DailyMail.com can exclusively reveal.
‘Ryan and Shayna decided to end their romantic relationship amicably some time ago,’ a spokesperson for the TV and radio host said in an exclusive statement. ‘They remain good friends, each other’s biggest supporters and will always cherish their time together as a couple’
But the 45-year-old has wasted no time moving on after splitting from the 28-year-old chef.
Pictures exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com show him holding hands with a mystery blonde while on a relaxing vacation in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico last week.

The American Idol has been enjoying some downtime in Mexico with his blonde companion and other pals this past week, as he enjoys a break from his multiple presenting gigs – many of which have continued through the coronavirus pandemic.
Ryan was seen soaking up the sunshine laying on a sun lounger in a resort, as he was accompanied by his blonde pal who bears a striking resemblance to his ex.
Just last month, the radio personality had revealed he and Schayna had got back together for the third time in their dating history, and in March he’d posted a throwback snap of the two of them to his Instagram as he wished Shayne a happy birthday.
The break up of the relationship comes as Ryan has been forced to deny rumors that he had suffered a stroke last month, after he was seen slurring his speech during the American Idol finale in mid-May.
His left eye appeared larger than his right and fans noted something seemed ‘off’ as they expressed their concerns for his health on Twitter

A rep for Ryan said afterwards: ‘Ryan did not have any kind of stroke last night.’
‘Like many people right now, Ryan is adjusting to the new normal and finding work-home balance, with the added stress of having to put on live shows from home.’
The rep explained: ‘Between Live with Kelly and Ryan, American Idol, On Air with Ryan Seacrest, and the Disney Family Singalong specials, he has been juggling three to four on-air jobs over the last few weeks and he’s in need of rest.’
The prolific host has been in Los Angeles during the coronavirus lockdowns and has had to adjust to doing his TV gigs remotely, telling People in early May how challenging he was finding it to juggle his hectic schedule with all the new changes.
But now it looks as though Ryan has finally managed to schedule himself that well-earned break with this luxury vacation with his pals.

Ryan and Shayna first met at a restaurant in LA in 2013 and have been dating on and off ever since.
In fact, the relationship seemed to be getting serious before they surprised fans by breaking up in February 2019.
They got back together, however, after just a few months apart and decided to give their romance another shot.
During an episode of ABC’s Live With Kelly and Ryan last month, Ryan wished Shayna a ‘happy third anniversary’, explaining: ‘It is our third time together… so we’ve gotten together, broken up, gotten together, broken up.’
Kelly teased Ryan saying that it wasn’t really an anniversary, to which Ryan responded: ‘No, it’s an eight-year run, but it’s our third run together. So we celebrate each trial.’
Then Kelly joked further, adding: ‘You know, third time’s a charm!’
Ryan joked that the relationship was like a roller-coaster, explaining: ‘You know, when we drive by an amusement park, I always look at the roller coaster and go, ‘Look, there we are. It’s all definitely upside down loops. It’s no Thunder Mountain, it’s definitely the Mind Bender.”
His ex: In March, Ryan had posted this throwback snap of himself and Shayna to his Instagram as he wished his girlfriend a happy birthday, and they were still together as recently as early May when he wished her ‘a happy third anniversary’
