"Adam and I have decided to separate in an amicable and supportive manner. We still love and respect each other as friends," Vyalitsyna told the magazine in a statement. "I wish him all the best."
The Russian-born 26-year-old, also known as Anne V, met Levine, 33, at a Sports Illustrated swimsuit-issue release party in early 2010, where Maroon 5 performed. Vyalitsyna has appeared in the last eight of the mag's celebrated swimsuit editions.
Levine was once known as a playboy of sorts, having been linked to a slew of lovely ladies like Jessica Simpson, Cameron Diaz and Natalie Portman, but he has seemed to settle down in recent years. His star has definitely been on the rise since landing the gig on "The Voice," and he was recently nominated for a Grammy for Maroon 5's catchy hit "Moves Like Jagger." Levine is also reportedly up for a role on FX's horror soap opera "American Horror Story."
Since it seems as though the breakup was amicable, we hope Levine isn't suffering from too much heartbreak. Though if he is, he can always turn to fellow "Voice" judge Blake Shelton for a shoulder to cry on. Shelton has joked about their friendship in the past, going as far as to admit wanting to kiss Levine.
"All I have to say is, it's true: I have a man crush on Adam," Shelton admitted to MTV News last month. "It blows me away people can pick up on that just by watching that on television. I want to kiss him. I want to kiss him so bad. I don't care if it's mutual or not. Can you honestly tell me that you don't have a little bit of a crush on Adam? He's sexy, is the word I'm using."
