Brandy and music executive Ryan Press are calling it quits.

A spokesperson for the singer, 35, confirmed to People magazine that she and Press have decided to call off their engagement. It was first reported in December 2012 that they were set to wed.

"It was a mutual decision," a spokesperson for Brandy said about the split. "They're both taking a step back regarding their relationship. They're definitely friends and will continue to be friends. There's nothing malicious or negative about [their split]."

The singer showcased the engagement ring Press gave to her at a New Year's Eve 2013 party in Las Vegas, after initially staying mum about reports of the engagement. Check out PHOTOS of the ring here.

Brandy, an accomplished singer and actress who rose to fame in the 1990s, has an 11-year-old daughter, named Sy'rai, from a previous relationship with music producer Robert Smith. She was also once engaged to NBA star Quentin Richardson in 2004.
