Sarah Hyland has split from her boyfriend of five years, Matt Prokop.

The Modern Family star's rep confirmed the breakup Tuesday, but did not give any further details about the split, according to The Los Angeles Times. Other reports say the breakup was amicable and the 23-year-old actress is "doing fine," thank you very much.

"It didn't work out," a source told Us Weekly, "She's young. They decided they would be better off as friends."

Hyland and her 24-year-old former boyfriend met at a High School Musical 3: Senior Year audition in 2008. The couple costarred together in the 2011 TV movie Geek Charming.

No word on the custody of their dog, Barkley Bixby.

Hyland appeared Monday at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards on her own but seemed happy as a clam. She posted a beautiful photo of herself on Instagram with the caption: "This sums up the #emmys2014 for me. Thank you to those who voted for us!!! I can't believe we won!!!! #emmys #modernfamily"

And why wouldn't she look happy-happy? After all, Modern Family won several Emmys, including its fifth win for best comedy series, tying Frasier for the most wins in that category.

After the show, the actress and her costars celebrated their big night. She posted a photo with Sofia Vergara at one of the parties.

The actress seems to be well-supported by her Team Sarah. On Tuesday she hit the Town with her good friends, posting an Instagram photo, captioned: "Very happy to have spent the night with my friends who happen to be the greatest team ever! @allanface @gualazz1 @ahellerpr"

Hyland may have been feeling the breakup blues on Thursday, with two cryptic posts:

Looks like she knows what to do to battle those breakup blues — girls night out with Glee's Jenna Ushkowitz!
