Well it really seems that Cara Delevingne and Michelle Rodriguez have split for good, as sources have revealed that Cara officially uninvited her partner from her big sister’s wedding, yesterday.

Reports are stating that things have really slowed down between the pair, so much so that Cara decided to revoke Michelle’s invite to her sister’s wedding.

A source who is close to the couple said that both Cara and Michelle haven’t seen each other in a while.

“Cara and Michelle have really cooled things in the past month and haven’t seen each other in a while. For Cara to go to the wedding alone was a big statement — she and Michelle were rarely apart early this year but are now taking a break.”

Even though Michelle was uninvited to Poppy’s wedding ceremony in London, a source said there is still a chance that she could attend the second wedding ceremony with Cara in Morocco.
