Renée Zellweger’s days of making sweet music with rocker boyfriend Doyle Bramhall II are screeching to a halt!

After three years, the “Chicago” actress, 46, is set to dump the blues guitarist following a sudden spike in her film career — plus a flirty relationship with “McDreamy” himself, Patrick Dempsey!

“She and Doyle built a happy home life together and they even discussed adopting a baby,” dished a spy. “But then movie offers came flooding in and now Renée’s career is back on the front burner, and Doyle feels neglected.”

As The National ENQUIRER reported, Renée became smitten with the “Grey’s Anatomy” star, 50, while the duo was filming “Bridget Jones’s Baby” last year in London.

Despite shooting having wrapped up, the two are still in touch!

“Doyle and Renée drifted apart emotionally when they were separated for weeks at a time, and they haven’t been able to rekindle the spark,” revealed the insider.

Renée’s burgeoning bond to Patrick also churned up the green-eyed monster in 47-year-old Doyle.

“Renée is fed up with Doyle’s insecurities and jealousy over her career being more successful than his,” conceded the spy. “She doesn’t want to be carrying around dead weight — which is what a lot of her friends think he is.”
