Halsey and Yungblud broke up in early September
“Sometimes. People just break up,” she wrote. “It doesn’t mean someone cheated or something bad happened or someone f—ed up. Sometimes. It just happens. Because life is constantly changing. And adults stay friends and move on.”
In a follow-up tweet, Halsey added, “now u know what u know 💕
E! News reported that Halsey (born Ashley Nicolette Frangipane) and Yungblud (born Dominic Harrison) broke up in early September. They were first linked in November 2018 and dropped their song “11 Minutes” in February 2019. In August, Halsey paid tribute to Yungblud while wishing him a happy 22nd birthday on her Instagram.
“It was sort of abrupt, and it was Halsey’s decision to end the relationship,” a source told E!. “Halsey has been very busy with her work commitments and traveling a lot recently, and their relationship was getting rocky. She’s been very busy and focused on her career, which took more of a priority.”
On Saturday night, the pair attended the American Horror Story 100th Episode Celebration in Los Angeles together, just over one month after they were first spotted on a date. For the festivities, the two also got into the Halloween spirit by dressing up as Sonny and Cher in a spot-on couple’s costume.
On Friday night, just one day before their red carpet debut, the pair made their relationship Instagram official and were seen holding hands after attending Halsey’s Halloween party together.
“Resident goths,” the singer captioned the Instagram post, which shows Peters pointing to Halsey with his hand wrapped around her shoulder. For the party, Peters dressed up as a Juggalo — a fan of the group Insane Clown Posse — while Halsey went as Marilyn Manson.
Halsey and Peters were first romantically linked after they were spotted on a date together at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Los Angeles on Sept. 21.
According to an onlooker, Peters appeared to be “flirting” with Halsey as they lined up for the theme park’s Goliath roller coaster.
At around 8 p.m. that evening, the onlooker says the pair hopped onto the ride and held hands tightly as they plummeted down the coaster’s 180-foot slope. A photo of Halsey and Peters — both dressed in gray T-shirts — on the ride shows them smiling as they hold on to the front of their seats.
