Another one bites the dust! After three years of dating, Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo have called it quits.

"They have amicably split but remain good friends who still greatly care for one another," Minnillo's rep confirmed to People.

In recent months Nick and Vanessa both denied breakup rumors, but it obvious their relationship was on the rocks.

Sources tell Hollyscoop that on June 17, 2009, which was their last public outing, Nick and Vanessa were spotted with Vanessa’s friends at Hollywood hotspot Myhouse for the JetBlue / VH1 event.

Sources tell Hollyscoop exclusively that the two got into a huge fight at the club in their VIP section where Vanessa "was seen yelling at Nick and pointing her finger in his face."

Our source added, "At one point the two kissed and made up, but it was obvious that Nick was over the scene and wanted to go home, while Vanessa wanted to drink and dance with her girlfriends."

"Shortly after the couple got into another heated argument, Nick calmly told Vanessa he was leaving. Nick left with his bodyguard while Vanessa hit the dance floor with her girlfriends.

"She was dancing and having a great time and didn't seem to care that Nick had left or that they had just gotten into an argument," the source tells Hollyscoop exclusively.

Vanessa showed up to the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen movie premiere in Los Angeles sans Nick on Monday night, and on Tuesday night she showed up to a Reebok launches Easytone event solo again. Nick seemed to be over the whole celebrity scene, while Vanessa seems to just want to have fun and mingle with her girlfriends.

Vanessa got a little bit of career boast from the relationship, so all she needs to do now is show to every red carpet event and take advantage of every PR opportunity and she'll do just fine. Dating another celebrity won't hurt either. Are you surprised by the split?
