Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott and Natalie Buffett have split after two years of dating, Page Six can exclusively reveal.
Multiple sources confirm that the longtime couple did in fact split around March 2022, but kept it close to the vest. We’re also told Prescott had a chance encounter.
Reps for the former couple did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
The 29-year-old athlete and 25-year-old Buffett began dating in 2020, based on photos on social media, though it’s unclear exactly when they became official. She posted their first picture together in honor of his 27th birthday, captioning the outdoor shot at the time: ‘Happy birthday my love.’
The model honored the occasion the following year, writing: “So proud of all you have accomplished and overcome this past year.” However, he has since deleted the tribute.
Prescott hasn’t appeared on the model’s Instagram page since February 2022, when they attended the NFL Honors event together. however, he does not appear on his page at all.
News of the split comes at a rough time for Prescott, as he and the Cowboys lost 19-12 to the 49ers in the NFC divisional round on Sunday. The NFL pro put the blame on himself, telling reporters that the elimination was “100 percent” on him.
“Yeah, just disappointed. Guys who played their ass. “The defense that gave us a chance to win this game, that played hard against a really, really good offense, a really good team,” Prescott said.
“And for us, just the points that we’ve made, it’s unacceptable, and it starts with me. I have to be better. There is no other way to sugar.”
