The internet is ablaze with rumours that Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers have split up.

It is now alleged singer Phoebe Bridgers is dating actor and comedian Bo Burnham.

Here's what we know so far:

Last week celebrity gossip podcast Deux U shared the rumour that Phoebe Bridgers was spotted kissing Bo Burnham in Los Angeles.


"A couple of people said that they saw them making out, they saw them canoodling, they saw them cuddling at the Magic Castle, at a 1975 concert, just at a bar in L.A."

The same podcast then reported that Paul split up with Phoebe once he found out about her and Bo. The DeuxU host says "I just got this in from a very reliable source, can confirm the engagement is off between Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers. It's not an open relationship in the slightest. Paul found out about Phoebe and Bo and called off the engagement."

Media outlet Jezebel then reported that Phoebe attended Bo Burnham's play "KATE" at the Connelly Theatre in New York on Monday, December 19th. According to the Jezebel reporter "Burnham got on stage to apologise for having to cancel the show and then hopped off to go sit down next to (Bridgers).

Earlier this month, Bo Burnham also shared a photo of Bridgers kissing the 1975 lead singer Matty Healy. Bo is reported to be friends with the singer, and Phoebe has previously collaborated with the band.

In November, The Guardian published an interview with Paul Mescal and reported he was engaged to Phoebe Bridgers. The newspaper subsequently issued a retraction saying: We said the actor was engaged to musician Phoebe Bridgers; this had previously been reported elsewhere but has not been confirmed by the couple and MEscal did not comment on his personal life in the interview."

It seems so far, that no comment has been made by Paul Mescal, Phoebe Bridgers or Bo Burnham regarding these rumours.
