Pamela Anderson has reportedly split from her soccer star boyfriend Adil Rami.

The 51-year-old actress - who is best-known for her starring role in 'Baywatch' - has decided to end their year-long romance because she worried it was interfering with Adil's responsibilities as a father.

A source told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: ''After spending this past week with Adil's cute [two-year-old] twin sons ... it broke Pam's heart that he doesn't see them enough, as he should, so she's moving out.''

Adil has twins Zayn and Madi with his ex-girlfriend Sidonie Biemont.

And the actress is reportedly concerned she is stopping Adil from spending more time with his children.

The insider continued: ''Pamela feels she is the reason Adil doesn't spend enough time with his children. She is removing herself from his life so he can do the right thing and be with his kids.

''It's a selfless move by Pamela, a true romantic - and she is heartbroken. Adil has difficulty balancing his life with Pamela and what should be a healthy relationship with his ex, the mother of his children.''

The source added that the move is typical of Pamela, who has kids Brandon, 22, and Dylan, 20, with her ex-husband Tommy Lee.

The insider added: ''It's typical of Pamela to sacrifice for her love. This is about his happiness and the sake of his sons. They need him more than her. She knows he'll thank her one day.''

In fact, Pamela - who recently moved out of the home she shared with Adil in the French Riviera - reportedly hopes that the soccer star will eventually reunite with the mother of his kids.
