According to the friends of both singers Eda-Ines Etti (the representative of Estonia in 2000) and Tanel Padar have broken up their relationship. Close acquaintance of both Ines and Tanel said that they just got tired of eachother.
Many friends of Ines and Tanel have assured that they are not a couple already from the beginning of this year. They haven't been seen in the public events together for a long time, the last time was in the recording of Estonian songs for the national final.
Their common acquaintance told SLÕhtuleht that the singers don't blame eachother for breaking up- “They just got tired of eachother. Although Tanel still likes Ines. Recently he a bought a theatre tickets and asked her out.” he said.
For this occasion Tanel had put on a suit and bought flowers for her, but that didn't seem to work any more.
Ines and Tanel didn't want to comment their relationship to the press.
They live separately now. Before they lived together in the flat which Tanel bought, but Ines has moved back to her grandparents place in Nõmme, Tallinn. That's the place she started her singing carreer.
According to their friends they don't have any new relationships, although Tanel has been sometimes connected to Ly Lumiste, a half of the Nightlight Duo (2nd place in the Estonian national final 2002).
