Los Angeles Mayor, Antonio R. Villaraigosa, and television reporter and former Miss USA, Lu Parker, have ended their relationship after three years.

Juliette Harris of It Girl Public Relations confirmed that the former Miss USA ended her relationship with Villaraigosa as of May 25.

Parker, the special assignment reporter at KTLA (Channel 5), started dating Villaraigosa in 2009 and moved into Mayor’s official home, the Getty House, shortly thereafter.

The couple attended numerous high-profile events in Los Angeles including the Oscars and the Emmys and were often photographed at key city events.

The Mayor and his ex-wife, Corina, divorced in 2007 after 20 years of marriage. Villaraigosa and Parker started dating after his affair with Mirthala Salinas, another television reporter, came to an end.
