Actress Rose McGowan and journalist DAVE ZINCZENKO have split amicably after realising the long distance between them was playing havoc with their relationship.

The Hollywood-based CHARMED star and the editor of New York City's MEN'S Health magazine dated for three years, but ultimately their professional lives proved too much of a strain, according to pals.

One friend tells website PAGESIX.COM, "The bottom line was that Dave couldn't leave New York and Rose couldn't leave Los Angeles."

However, the gossip site claims the real reason behind their split may stem from McGowan's recent trip to London, where she reportedly delayed her flight home after meeting TV presenter Steve Jones.
