Oh no, not another celebrity break up! Well, actually, maybe we don’t mind this one (you know, seeing as they’re both still so young and Taylor’s so fit etc…). That’s right, a close friend of Taylor Lautner has confirmed that he has indeed split up with short-term girlfriend and co-star Lily Collins.
The extremely indiscreet pal told US Weekly, “It was a clean break that Taylor initiated”. And the insider says, despite both attending the premiere for their film, Abduction, the pair had actually decided to call it quits at least a week before the big night. Ooh!
In fact, the source commented, “At the Abduction party, it was awkward. They barely said a word to one another." Sad face.
Rumours that Taylor and Lily (pictured above starring in Abduction) had become engaged have been doing the rounds recently too, but alas it seems things were actually going the other way for the pair, despite their brave outing together in Hollywood last week.
Taylor was even heard gushing about his former beau fairly recently in interviews, telling Seventeen magazine, “You can feel some sort of chemistry or a connection when you are reading a script with someone for the first time. That was totally the case with Lily.”
Alas, this connection he speaks of shall from now on, only be on screen - and Taylor’s (probably also now an ex) pal concluded frankly that the actor “wants to be single for a while [so that] he can properly move on”.
We wonder what Lily's dad, pop crooner, Phil Collins makes of all this. Oh and girls, do start forming an orderly queue (behind us).
