Katie Couric is living solo.
The ABC news anchor and boyfriend of five years, Brooks Perlin, have split -- a rep for Katie confirms to Us Weekly.
The two started dancing after meeting at a cancer research fundraising event in 2006. Couric's husband, Jay Monahan passed away from colon cancer in 1998.
A friend of Couric's tells New York Post "Brooks is a great person and a real gentleman; he and Katie enjoyed their time together."
The friend continues, "But after five years, they have decided it was time to go their separate ways."
