Emma Watson and Will Adamowicz Split

"Emma and Will separated last summer and are no longer in touch," her rep tells PEOPLE.
The pair met while studying at Oxford in 2011 and were first photographed together at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in 2012, where they were caught smooching.
Watson, 23, hoped that the crowds at Coachella would shield her and Adamowicz from being photographed, and admitted that the paparazzi can be a strain on her love life
"My friend got me tickets [to Coachella] for my birthday, and what am I going to say? 'No, I'm not going to go because I don't want to be photographed?' But it was a huge crowd, and I thought there was no way anyone could get pictures of me, but somehow they found me," Watson told Glamour.
"It's difficult on my dating life, because anyone I get photographed with is automatically my boyfriend. So it just makes it look as if I've had, like, 6,000 boyfriends!"
Watson and Adamowicz were again photographed together about 10 months later while strolling through New York City.
The actress was previously linked to her Perks of Being a Wallflower costar Johnny Simmons.
