KELLAN Lutz has split from Sharni Vinson.

The 'Twilight' Saga hunk reportedly called time on his relationship with the former 'Home and Away' actress in May, after over a year and a half of dating, according to Us Weekly.

The split has come as a surprise as Kellan, 28, recently revealed one of the greatest perks of is job is that Sharni, 29, gets to travel with him so they don't have to be apart.

He said: "I get to bring Sharni along on these amazing press trips, she exudes this pure, joyful energy. I just want to be around her.

"Sharni's personality and mine very much complement each other, and we connect on every level.

"She has a big personality so we have great conversations and laugh so much. I'm never fake with her, and it makes our relationship so easy. It's all about being honest.

"I've learned to be honest, because at the end of the day I have to be with somebody that loves me for who I really am."

While Kellan was always honest with Sharni, he admitted in the past he often told white lies in order to impress girls.

Kellan - who previously dated '90210's AnnaLynne McCord - said: "I've become more mature when it comes to women and relationships. My M.O. now is to be who I really am and not be fake in order for a girl to like me back.

"I was in this one relationship where I told her things about myself that wasn't really me. I said I liked this certain band only because she liked them.

"Then she bought me tickets to their concert and I was stuck in going. It's not fair to her and to me."
