Hollywood’s princess has reportedly been dumped.
After three-years of an on-again, off-again romance, Jennifer Lawrence, 23, and her “X-Men” co-star, Nicholas Hoult, have reportedly called their romance quits, TheFIX reports. According to the gossip site, Hoult, 24, dumped Lawrence over her “exploded ego” and “obsession” with Hollywood.
“He hates how in love with fame Jen is and he told her he hates dating an A-list actress,” said one source. “They are still talking but Nicholas is moving on.”
According to the report, Lawrence is reportedly “desperately” trying to get back with her two-time co-star, an attempt which may be in vain.
“She’s worked so hard for her achievements and she’s so proud of her career. But Nic wants a more low-key girlfriend,” said a source, citing model and actress Riley Keough as his ideal future love interest.
The break up rumors follow Page Six’s report that Hoult was seen flirting with Keough, 25, at No.8’s “Philo Prom” party July 23. According to an eyewitness the pair was spotted “siting arm-in-arm“ and “looked cozy,” at the star-studded soiree.
Following their flirtation fest, insiders claim that the British film star is pursuing Keough in his native stomping grounds.
“Riley is into acting in indies and not playing the fame game. She also spends a huge amount of time in the UK because her mom Lisa Marie Presely lives there,” said a source, adding, “Nic dated Riley when he and Jen were on their first break and he is ready to give their relationship a shot.”
Lawrence and Hoult first started dating in 2011 after meeting on the set of “X-Men: First Class.” The duo separated in February 2012 only to reconcile just six months later during the production of “X-Men Days of Future Past.”
Hoult last spoke out about his romance with Lawrence in March, telling V Man magazine he felt like her “bystander in many ways.”
In May, Lawrence spoke of her British beau to Marie Claire magazine, saying, “When we're busy, we agree to mutually ignore each other. Not completely, but neither of us gets mad when the other doesn't text back or call. Life's super-busy.”
