| Last updated
Jason Oppenheim has spoken out following his split from girlfriend Marie-Lou Nurk.
The 46-year-old's real estate brokerage representing buyers and seller of luxury properties in Los Angeles and Orange County - The Oppenheim Group - is at the centre of Netflix reality TV series Selling Sunset.
While Oppenheim previously kept in the shadows behind any conflict which arises between the agents, his romantic life ended up being brought into the show - including him dating model Nurk, who he met in July 2022.
Oppenheim has since revealed he and the 25-year-old model - who's signed to Marilyn Agency NY and Mega Model Agency and based in Paris and Los Angeles - have split, citing 'the distance' becoming too much.
Taking to his Instagram stories, Oppenheim shared a photograph of the pair looking into the sunset.
The statement alongside the image reads: "While we still love and care about each other very much the distance between us has proven to be too great a challenge to overcome.
"We remain close friends and continue to talk often and support each other and we want the very best for one another.
"We thank everyone for their support throughout our relationship."
Nurk shared the same statement on her own Instagram story alongside a follow-up responding to an influx of messages she's received.
The post reads: "Although I may not be able to respond to each message individually, please know that I have read them all and I am truly grateful for your words of love and support.
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
The pair have both previously opened up about the difficulties of a long-distance relationship.
In a post to her Instagram story, Nurk once wrote: "The truth is, we both knew from the beginning that I would have to move back because of my job, friends, and family being here.
"Long distance relationships can be tough, but we're both committed to making it work. We make sure to communicate regularly and make time for each other despite the distance."
In an interview with Today last month, Oppenheim echoed: "[Marie-Lou] and I just got the phone like 30 seconds ago. We're trying to figure out how to see each other in a couple of weeks, because it's already been a couple of weeks. We talk every day and things are still going great, but obviously, it's hard being apart.
"I think we have two or three trips planned for over the summer. It's a lot of flying. But we're doing well."
