In today’s sad news, it’s being claimed that Charlize Theron and Sean Penn have split and gone their separate ways 18 months after they began dating.
The Hollywood actress reportedly called off the pair’s engagement after they spent some time together in Europe in May.
Wah. Pass us the tissues and SAY IT ISN’T SO, PLEASE.
Charlize, 39, and Sean, 54, had been friends for decades before getting together, and were rumoured to be walking up the aisle later this year.
However, multiple sources have now confirmed the break-up allegations to Us weekly, with one insider claiming that they decided to end their relationship during their recent trip to the Cannes Film Festival, where the actress was promoting ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’.
The insider added that it was Charlize who ended things with Sean.
Sources also told People that they’ve been living in separate houses, with the actress staying at her Hollywood home with son Jackson while the actor resides at his Malibu mansion, which he recently pulled off the housing market.
The source adds that they ‘backed out of at least one scheduled event together’ before Charlize travelled to London to film The huntsman.
Our hearts can’t take many more of these splits. Seriously.
This comes after Charlize called Sean the “love of my life” in an interview with Elle.
Back in March, Sean had gushed about his potential future with his new lady, telling Esquire: “You say I’ve been married twice before, but I’ve been married under circumstances where I was less informed than I am today.
“So I wouldn’t even consider it a third marriage, I’d consider it a first marriage on its own terms if I got married again. I mean, I like the tradition.”
Us Weekly claimed that they’d gotten secretly engaged in paris a year into their relationship, though the two never confirmed this.
We’re seriously hoping this isn’t true, but if it is, we wish them both all the best.
