How do you know when two people get into a relationship? They post it on social media. And how do you know, when they split? They stop liking each other’s posts, they no more tag one another in captions and comments. In other words, you no longer see their selfies together.
Announcing everything that happens in our lives on social media is how we all roll in this internet-drugged era. Not just the commoners, but even the celebrities. How do we get all the insider scoop on a person’s life? By stalking them dedicatedly. So, it doesn’t come off as a surprise that the first signs of the breakup of Scream Queens lovebirds’ Taylor Lautner and Billie Lourd were that they stopped interacting on Instagram.
The popular Twilight werewolf and his girlfriend recently parted their ways. The news has erupted like wildfire engulfing all media outlets. But before any substantial and authentic word was collected, fans already had an idea of the split as the last lovey-dovey pic of the couple was posted by Lautner on 24th May. After that, there has been an uninterrupted silence from both sides with neither of them liking other’s pictures on Insta. Also, Billie has deleted most of the goo-goo shots of her with former BF from her account. Ouch!
The couple dated for eight months and were together in times of loss and despair. Jacob Black, I mean Taylor Lautner, was the shoulder that Billie Lourd cried on when her mother and then grandmother passed away. On Lautner’s commitment to Lourd which she surely would have reciprocated, her uncle, Todd Fisher said, “The truth of the matter is, the guy is pretty spectacular. He’s a really deep person, and he has supported her amazing. He’s stepped up and acted like a husband would act.” Good going, Lautner.
The confirmation that they are no more romantically involved was stamped on by an unknown source to People in these words, “They aren’t together anymore, but they are still friendly.” The source further added that Lourd was “really focused on her work right now.”
Now to some extent, it’s nice that they are on affable terms but if you look at it from another angle what is worse than being strangers after having an affair? Being friend-zoned. Some people suggest that they might get back together as they are still friends. But we all know what the statistical probability of that is.
Where some fans are wasting tissues clearing tears and snot reminiscing Jacob and Billie’s brief yet emotional romance, others have started day dreaming about the sharp-jawed dude once again.
