Paul Wesley and wife Ines de Ramon have called it quits three years after tying the knot.
A rep for the couple exclusively tells PEOPLE that “they have separated” and have been living separately for several months.
“The decision to separate is mutual and took place five months ago. They request privacy at this time,” says the rep.
The The Vampire Diaries Elm, 40, was first romantically linked to Roman, 29, a jewelry professional, in June 2018, when they were spotted holding hands after a dinner date in New York City. They made their relationship Instagram official the following month while at a Montauk wedding with friends Jessica Sohr and Nina Dobrev.

The couple was later seen matching wedding bands during another outing in February 2019. Dobrev, 33, confirmed the news during a podcast appearance in June when she referred to Ramon as Wesley’s “wife.”
“We hang out a lot. We’re really good friends. I love his wife. It’s funny how time changes everything because I never thought he’d be one of my best friends,” Dobrev said at the time.

Wesley spoke to People for the 2020 Sexiest Man Alive issue about quarantine and life at home with Ramon and their dog Greg during the Covid-19 pandemic.
“I’m in a fortunate position where I was able to take a break, and it was very important for me to do that,” Wesley said. “For me, I reset. I recalibrated. Kind of realized what was important to me, reprioritized my life.”
