Lana Del Rey has branded her ex-boyfriend Barrie James O'Neill ''unwell'' and admits they were not a good match as their relationship was ''very rewarding, but very difficult.''
Lana Del Rey claims her ex-boyfriend Barrie-James O'Neill is ''unwell.''
The 'Summertime Sadness' hitmaker, who split from the Scottish musician in June after three years together, admits they were not a good match, as their relationship was ''very rewarding, but very difficult.''
Reflecting on their time together, the 29-year-old star told the September issue of Fashion magazine: ''It's been a tenuous and tumultuous three years ... It was very rewarding, but very difficult.
''Trying to get consistency and normality within the dynamic of that relationship has been impossible. He's unwell and I'm unwell in some ways, and psychologically we've been through a lot together.''
Lana, who has since moved on with Vogue photographer Francesco Carrozzini, hopes to settle down in the future.
She said: ''I would love to find someone I could share my life with and be married to. I would love children, too. Hopefully they're not as bad as I am.''
Shortly after she announced her split from Barrie, who reportedly proposed on her birthday in June 2013, he insisted they were still together.
In late June, he said: ''It's not over. It's not over. Don't believe what you read, it's not over. It's just stories, bedtime stories.''
Lana also initially hinted they might get back together in the future.
She said: ''We are currently not together. He is a wonderful person. But there are some things with which he has to deal. I will not explain it in detail. This was hard on our relationship, I no longer felt free. We'll see how it goes.''
Her parents weren't too fond of the idea.
