Paul Mescal is rumored to have broken up with his singer-songwriter girlfriend Phoebe Bridgers after online rumors called their relationship ‘end’.
His pairing has long been the focus of rumors online, with fans who had previously speculated they were engaged now believing they’ve dropped it.
Neither Paul, the native of Maynooth nor Phoebe, his love of America settled the claims.
The anonymous celebrity gossip account Deuxmoi ‘announced’ their split last month based on reports from unidentified sources.
Since then, social media has exploded as fans say they are ‘grieved’ over the loss of the celebrity couple’s relationship.
“It’s not that I’m really stressed by the rumors that Phoebe Bridgers and Paul Mescal have broken up,” one person said.
“Please don’t say Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers broke up,” another posted.
“I’m about to cry,” said another fan.

Confused fans have been spreading the rumor like wildfire, spurred in part by a photo of the 1975-born Leader Matty Healy shared on Instagram last week.
In it, he locks lips with Phoebe while comedian Bo Burnham puts his arm around their shoulders.
Mescal rose to global fame for her role in the television adaptation of Sally Rooney’s Ordinary People, since rising to fame with the critically-acclaimed series Aftersun.
Grammy Award-nominated Phoebe has been described by Paul as his rock.
He told GQ: “Having someone to lean on during such crazy, crazy times is priceless.
“Really, I don’t know where I would be without her.”
Phoebe confessed to British Vogue that the couple spent “the best Christmas ever” at the actor’s local Kildare last year.
“Last year, I was with my boyfriend’s family in Ireland.
The award-winning singer said, “It’s like a full-rom.
Fans have long been buzzing about the famous couple, who met via Twitter when Paul starred in The Ordinary.
While they were rumored to be dating, Paul appeared in the music video for Phoebe’s song Savior Complex, which was directed by Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
A few days later, Paul finally revealed that he had a girlfriend in an interview with GQ, describing his partner as a “lifesaver”.
After appearing together on the red carpet in November 2021, the couple officially confirmed their relationship in December with a sweet post on Instagram.
They clearly share a love for Ireland as it was reported last year that they were contemplating a home in West Cork.
When asked for advice on a “successful relationship” by Vogue magazine, she said a clear sign is “when your favorite thing is to hang out.”
She also shared about their ‘typical date night’: “Lie in the park for hours, then go home and watch TV.”
Paul has toured the US with Phoebe and admitted he enjoys spending time with his long-rumored fiancée.
“I really enjoyed being with her, the band and her friends,” he told Bustle.
“It’s nice to visit a country I’m not familiar with.
