Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff Break Up After More Than 5 Years of Dating
Taylor Swift‘s friend group just took a major hit. Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff are two of the “End Game” singer’s closest pals who just so happen to also be dating. Or…should we say, used to be dating. In a shocking turn of events, reports state that the the longterm celebrity couple has broken up after being together for more than five years.
Reps for both the actress and musician confirm the breakup to People magazine, saying it was “amicable.”
The pair met back in 2012 after going on a blind date. They fell hard, fast, and before long the Bleachers crooner was moving into the Girls creator’s Brooklyn apartment.
The 31-year-old called the 33-year-old her “life partner” back in 2014, but revealed to Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show that they didn’t want to get married before gay marriage was fully legal in the United States.
“We’re not against marriage, but I wanna wait until it’s something — my sister’s gay and it just doesn’t feel good to me to do something she can’t do,” she explained at the time. “She can do it in some places but not all places.”
But even after same-sex marriage was legalized in June 2015, Jack and Lena didn’t tie the knot right away because they wanted to “wait for a moment where [they felt] excited about” getting hitched.
“It’s hard to imagine when the right time is, because things are so crazy at the moment,” Jack told New York about his thoughts on marriage. “It just seems like the most fun thing in the world. I’ve never met people who have kids who haven’t looked me in the eye and been like, ‘It’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened.'”
The famed music producer said of his relationship with LD is “pretty normal in terms of everyday life.”
“[It’s a mix of] trying to support each other [and] trying to find something new and exciting for dinner,” he explained.
