LATEST: SCRUBS star Zach Braff and Mandy Moore have ended their relationship, according to media reports in the US. The couple have reportedly gone their separate ways, mainly due to the nine-year age gap between them. Us Weekly West Coast Editor IAN DREW says, "They both decided that after two years, Mandy was a little young. Zach was ready for something different and they wanted to just kind of test the waters a little bit. It was an amicable break." A source tells the American magazine, "Mandy was very young when they got together and she wanted to see what's out there, now that she's a woman. Zach was mature and realised it is time to let her do that." The pair have been tight-lipped about their relationship, but the 22-year-old CANDY singer launched a scathing attack on tabloid journalists earlier this week (12JUN06), who reported on the rumoured break-up. She wrote on her website, "I believe that personal issues (like this one) should be kept private. "This sort of unscrupulous conduct should be unethical for the media to practice and I'm sickened by the extent that these people are willing to go to make a name for themselves." The 31-year-old GARDEN STATE star has wasted no time moving on, he was recently seen partying with pals at Hollywood hot spot Hyde on 8 June (06) and unsuccessfully romancing Jessica Simpson.
