From 2005-2011, life was ~suite~. 2005-2008 was the era of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, 2008-2011 was the era of its spin-off, The Suite Life on Deck — and both were AWESOME. But, little did we know that, behind the scenes, not everything was a comic adventure.

According to Alyson Stoner, who played Max on the original series from 2005-2007, she dated one of the two series leads, Cole Sprouse (a.k.a. Cody Martin), which he proudly proclaimed in some recently-unearthed footage of a 2004 interview with Access Hollywood. The 23-year-old singer stopped by “The Night Time Show” podcast to promote her new EP, titled While You Were Sleeping, and revealed, “The first boy, I guess, that I had like a crush on and dated was Cole Sprouse.”

But things quickly went south from there. While they were both only around 11 years old at the time, the talented actress/singer/dancer had to nurse a broken heart. Cole had just had a ~thing~ with Victoria Justice (Cole was actually Victoria’s first kiss!), so Alyson felt insecure ’cause, in her eyes, the brunette star “was a babe.” Oh, and get this, Aly said that the blond actor broke up with her… on her birthday!

“He just said, ‘It’s not going to work out,'” she explained. Ouch.

Huh, wonder how things would’ve turned out if she went out with Cole’s twin brother, Dylan Sprouse, instead. After all, her character was into him:
