No matter how old you are or how long you’ve been together, ending a relationship is never easy. And we’re sad to say that Millie Bobby Brown and her boyfriend, singer Jacob Sartorius, have officially broken up.
The Stranger Things actress and the “Sweatshirt” singer each posted about the split today, July 31st, on their Instagram Stories, writing in complementary statements that they’re (thankfully) both doing well. The two had been together for about seven months before deciding to go their separate ways.
Sartorius echoed Brown in his own Story, writing again that the breakup was a mutual decision and they were “happy and remaining friends.” Brown and Sartorius were first romantically linked at the end of 2017, and as UsMagazine.com notes, they even spent New Year’s Eve together with their families at Walt Disney World.
In late January, Brown posted a black and white selfie of the two with a December 31st date stamp, making their relationship Insta official. That same month, Sartorius tweeted that he felt the future would be “better w you in it,” which many took to be about Brown.
The young couple occasionally posted sweet messages to each other throughout their relationship, including Sartorius’s adorable message to Brown on Twitter when she turned 14.
Breakups are never easy, and we’re wishing Brown and Sartorius the best as they move forward.
