Over Emmys weekend, the Jane the Virgin star made the rounds solo, prompting speculation she and her boyfriend of one year were over.
“Gina really cared for him. She is a sweet person with a prosperous career, but she has limited time and it was just a mutual split,” says the source. “They are still friends and very realistic about relationships.”
In June, Rodriguez, 30, gushed about her ex in a sweet (and now deleted) Instagram post.
“It’s you. It’s always been you. One year down, I pray for a 100 more. Happy anniversary my love,” she captioned a photo of them.
Rodriguez didn’t let any sign of heartbreak show at the Emmy Awards on Sunday. With a big smile on her face, the actress stunned in a beaded, pink Lorena Sarbu dress and Forevermark jewels and had her hair styled into a sleek ponytail by Joico’s celebrity hair stylist Paul Norton.
She even re-grammed a fun shot posted by co-presenter John Stamos captioned “Me and Gina. Two virgins.”
“He’s amazing and super supportive,” Rodriguez told PEOPLE of Esteve in late 2014. “He’s my partner-in-crime.”
