By  | 

Welp, that was quick. Less than two months after Camila Mendes was first linked to hometown friend Victor Houston, it’s being reported that the couple has broken up.

E! News reports that the longtime friends who became a short-term couple split “very recently.”

“Camila ended things with Victor after ComicCon, when she realized she wasn’t ready to be in this relationship anymore,” a source says. “Victor was completely blindsided and is very heartbroken.”

The insider continues, “He has been receiving a lot of backlash from the Riverdale community, even though it was actually Camila’s choice to end the relationship.”

The 24-year-old actress ~officially~ confirmed her relationship with the non-celebrity last month, but the decision didn’t come lightly.

“It’s somebody completely out of the industry,” she said of her then-boyfriend. “It’s funny because I’m more hesitant to talk about it because I don’t want him to read this… I actually would totally talk about it right now, if I didn’t feel like, ‘Wait, he might read this.'”

Cami tried to date her colleagues in the past, but eventually realized that she doesn’t “like actors.”

“It’s just dating people in the industry is tough,” she explained. “I did for a little bit. I’ve just dated actors. It’s hard when that’s your world. You only meet people through work and that can be really tough, because you’re not necessarily meeting people that you’re similar to. It’s just people that you’re with because you’re working on the same project.”

She continued, “Actors are really emotionally complicated,” she explains. “You would think they would be more in tune with their emotions, but sometimes they’re just not. I just really need to get out of this industry with someone who is in a stable environment.”
