Lauren Conrad has broken up with her boyfriend, former 'My Boys' star Kyle Howard, who the reality star has been dating since 2008.

Conrad, 24, managed to keep her relationship with the 32-year-old actor a secret from MTV's cameras while filming 'The Hills,' but it was one of the reasons she left the hit show in 2009. An insider told E! Online that the breakup was mutual and there were no third parties involved.
