NBA
alum Rick Fox and actress Eliza Dushku have split.

The couple had been together for more than four years, but it wasn’t another person that came between Fox and the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” actress – it was another city.

Dushku tells the “Boston Globe” that she’s leaving Los Angeles after 22 years in favor of her hometown.

“Rick’s an LA guy and I’m a Boston girl,” she told the “Globe.” “I’d rather be a little physically cold here than emotionally cold in LA. I missed my town and I missed my family.”

Dushku is best known for her role of Faith on “Buffy,” along with part in FOX’s “Dollhouse” and the endlessly-rewatchable “Bring It On.”

Since retiring from the NBA, Fox has also been bitten by the acting bug, most recently with a recurring role on VH1’s “Hit the Floor.”
