NEW YORK (AP) _ Shoshanna Lonstein says she and Jerry Seinfeld broke up because he worked too hard and she played too much.

Seinfeld ``worked 24 hours a day, seven days a week,″ Lonstein told Details magazine. ``And I wanted to run around and play.″

Now 23, Lonstein was only 16 when she met the former ``Seinfeld″ star in 1992. She enrolled at the University of California, Los Angeles, to be near him, but they broke up in 1997.

``I’m happy I got to have the relationship, but L.A. was a really lonely existence for me,″ Lonstein said.
