Have Phoebe Bridgers and Paul Mescal split up?
Bridgers has been dating Mescal since 2020, with reports from just last month claiming that the pair were now engaged, but it appears there may be trouble in paradise.
The rumors began when infamous blind item page DeuxMoi reported sightings of the 28-year-old musician getting cozy with Burnham at a The 1975 concert in Los Angeles, with anonymous tips claiming the duo was kissing during the show.
Bridgers and the 32-year-old comedian were then spotted together on a few more occasions, including at a comedy show in New York on Monday. The 1975 frontman Matty Healy also shared a rather bizarre photo of himself kissing Bridgers, with Burnham standing behind them. Making things even messier, Burnham has been dating filmmaker Lorene Scafaria since 2013 and has not publicly confirmed a split.
The repeated sightings of Bridgers with Burnham have led many to speculate that she and Mescal may have secretly split.
Fans collectively panic over Bridgers and Mescal break-up rumors
Burnham and Bridgers have crossed paths professionally in recent years, with Bridgers releasing a cover of That Funny Feeling, a song from Burnham's Netflix special Inside, in 2021. She went on to perform the cover at several stops of her tour.
Meanwhile, Bridgers and Mescal won the hearts of fans of the Sally Rooney/Taylor Swift/Fleabag multiverse when they went public with their romance in 2020.
The news of the breakup, and the alleged Burnham/Bridgers hookup, is sending fans into an absolute frenzy on social media.
"ive decided for the sake of my own happiness that the rumors paul mescal and phoebe bridgers have split up are a lie," one fan tweeted.
"if the allegations are true and phoebe bridgers cheated on paul mescal with bo burnham this is the kenneth branagh cheating on emma thompson with helena bonham carter of the covid era," another wrote.
None of the stars have yet commented on the gossip, so it certainly remains possible that the rumors are just that.
