The pair, who started dating in 2013, were always very public about their affection for each other on social media.
But now the romance has come to an end as it seems 18-year-old Ireland feels she needs to spend more time concentrating on work and her studies.
An insider told UsWeekly: “She is really trying to keep her momentum going as a model and she can't do that and go to school and have a boyfriend.”
Overall it seems like the 6ft 2’ beauty is ready for a new start. “She's young, she always had an idea that it wouldn't last forever,” a source told the publication.
Last May Ireland gushed about Slater saying: "I would say he is my best friend. We have our moments but that's rare. We can act stupid in public, private or wherever and we are always laughing."
The break up isn’t the only thing that has changed in Ireland’s life the past week; on Wednesday the daughter of actors Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin shared a series of ‘selfies‘ on Instagram and Twitter flaunting her newest hair style.
Ireland posed in several photos showing off her boldly coloured hair, that she transformed from luxurious blonde locks to bright purple.
“Bust my lip and dyed my hair. Thank you @anderssonjj for the PURP babe,” was a caption accompanying one of the photos.
Referring to her new look, the former blonde said: “I just really wanted to go lavender and it's going to fade out,' she told the website. 'I wanted change! I love my platinum hair and that's who I am, but this is fun. Why not? It's temporary and fun.”
