Nick Lachey & Vanessa Minnillo break up

Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have called it quits, Us Magazine reports:

A source close to the couple tells Us: “It was an amicable break-up. They walk away from it still friends.”
Adds another source, “They still care about each other very much. This is what’s best for both of them.”
The couple hooked up in 2006 — the year after Lachey split from wife Jessica Simpson.

I love how these “sources” always say the same thing during celebrity break ups: “They’re still the best of friends.” “Unicorns met them at the door as they embraced for the last time.” Just once, I’d like to hear a source say something like: “He’s been nothing doing but looking up his exes on Facebook and masturbating, while she just got engaged to that weird guy from Starbucks after one date.” Who hasn’t been there, am I right? High five! Actually, no wait, don’t. I can see the Facebook screen on your monitor and, have you been crying?
