Modern Family Star Ariel Winter and actor Levi Meaden have split up after nearly three years. The two started dating in November 2016, but have not been together since August. The split, reported by Us Weekly after the 21st winter, was discovered earlier this week by a mysterious guy.
According to Us Weekly Winter was seen with a beard, brown-haired man in Kiwami, a Japanese restaurant in Studio City, California, on Wednesday.
Winter's relationship with Meaden, 32, was put to the test due to the age difference. They even moved in together, a decision Winter has noted in an interview with Refinery29 .
"I'm happy, and whatever people want to say, they can say," said Winter. "I do not understand why anyone ever commented on our situation, there are tons of people of all ages living with their boyfriend, there are tons of people living with their girlfriends, [and] tons of people who do not live together but I'm super happy with the arrangement we have, we love to live together, it's just great. "
In the same interview, Winter Meaden named the" most incredible person I've ever met " and felt so happy to be with him.
"He always compliments me and makes me feel special and beautiful," she explained. "We went shopping today and I wore a weird one T-shirt that I hate somehow, and my semi-pajama pants, and he still took the time to tell me that I look pretty, even if I feel bad, he's just there, to support me and to pick me up when I feel bad.
The former couple celebrated their one-year anniversary in November 201
"Happy 1 Anniversary My Love. I'm the happiest girl in the world, "wrote Winter at the time on Instagram." Thank you for being the incredible man and making me the happiest I could ever imagine. On many, many more. I love you.
Meaden was recently seen in an episode of SHIELD agents and had a minor role in Pacific World War and Pacific: Riot [19459005Heplayedintheshort-livedSyFyseriesof2016 Aftermath .
As far as the winter is concerned, she now plays in the 11th and final season of ABC's Modern Family For more than a decade, Alex Dunphy has been making a guest appearance on the drama last week Law & Order: SVU .
