The actress, 32, debuted a new look Sunday in a video message to a friend after splitting from boyfriend Ben Affleck.

After reportedly spending time in Cuba with family recently, sources confirmed to PEOPLE Monday that de Armas and Affleck have ended their relationship of nearly a year.

Affleck, 48, and de Armas had been romantically linked since early March 2020, when they were seen on a trip to Cuba. They then headed to Costa Rica for a romantic vacation before returning to Los Angeles.

The Knives Out actress confirmed their relationship on Instagram in April when she shared photos with Affleck for her 32nd birthday. The ex-couple was frequently seen together during the summer as they both spent the quarantine period in Los Angeles.

At the time, de Armas spent time with Affleck and his kids, whom he shares with ex-wife Jennifer Garner: daughters Violet, 14, and Seraphina, 11, as well as 8-year-old son Samuel.

Sources close to the couple told PEOPLE the split was a mutual decision that the two made together.

"Ben is no longer dating Ana," the source said. "She broke it off. Their relationship was complicated. Ana doesn't want to be Los Angeles based and Ben obviously has to since his kids live in Los Angeles."

"This is something that was mutual and something that is completely amicable," another source close to Affleck and de Armas added. "They are in different points in their lives; there is deep love and respect there. Ben continues to want to work on himself. He has three jobs lined up and he's a solid father at home. They are both happy with where they are in their lives."
