Rumours have been swirling since December that uber cool couple, Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers have split. And while neither has officially confirmed their breakup, all signs are pointing to the speculation being true. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, published on 23 Feb., Mescal is asked whether he'll speak of his relationship status, to which the "Aftersun" actor replied, "Maybe at some point, but just not now. It's just difficult territory. Yeah."

The gossip mill began turning in December when Bridgers was spotted getting close to comedian Bo Burnham, according to The Daily Mail. Then came SZA's track "Ghost", which features Bridgers. While she mentions no-one specifically, the lyrics on her verse include: "You're not wrong, you're an a–hole" and "Standin' on my own".

In January, Mescal appeared on the "Off Menu" podcast and fans spotted a little insight into his mindset, too. The actor said he's always looking for something "bad" to happen to give him an excuse to start smoking. "So I'm smoking again, read into that what you will", he added. Following Mescal's Oscar nomination, there was no public congratulations on social media from Bridgers, although the notoriously private couple could have, of course, privately been in contact. In an interview with Australian Vogue, Bridgers did say she's "obviously" rooting for him. The publication originally addressed Mescal as her "former fiancé", too, before it late amended the feature. Reps for the couple did not repond to POPSUGAR's request for comment.

Whatever has gone down between the pair, there's no denying their relationship timeline has been a modern-day love story. Back in 2020, the "Punisher" singer slid into the "Normal People" star's DMs and they soon became romantically linked. There were even rumours of an engagement, but it appears this is off. Read ahead to see a full timeline of Bridgers and Mescal's romance.
