Alex Rodriguez and Anne Wojcicki are no longer an item.
In a statement to PEOPLE, Wojcicki confirmed the split, calling the retired Yankees legend, 41, a “wonderful guy.”
“He’s a wonderful guy. I adore him and his friends and his family, but cross country relationships are hard,” she said.
Sources confirmed to PEOPLE that Rodriguez and the 23andMe co-founder and CEO, 43, began dating earlier last year. They were spotted together at the Vanity Fair Super Bowl Party in San Francisco in early February 2016.
Rodriguez announced his retirement from baseball in August after a 22-year career. Wojcicki, a Yale graduate, helped start 23andMe, a personal genomics and biotechnology company based out of Mountain View, California, in 2006. Both were previously married, and have children from previous relationships.
