Jennifer Lawrence: DUMPED By Nicholas Hoult Due to Her Massive Ego?!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult broke up last year but then continued to make appearances together and make out in public.

Back in April, Lawrence was even spotted wearing an engagement ring. Needless to say, these two don't seem to have a very good understanding of how breaking up works.

Now, however, it seems they might be well and truly done, as a source claims that Nicholas has ended their relationship because of Jen's "exploded ego." (In other words: he's jelly.)

"Jen is still desperately trying to get back with Nick after he broke up with her," says a source. "They're still talking but Nicholas is moving on. He hates how in love with fame Jen is, and he told her he hates dating an A-list actress."

Yeah, she's way too Hollywood, man. Odd complaint, considering they met while filming a freakin' X-Men movie, but whatever. 

Jen is reportedly distraught by the fact that Nicholas has already moved on and has been spotted canoodling with actress Riley Keough.

"Riley is into acting in indies and not playing the fame game," says the insider. "Nic dated Riley while he and Jen were on their last break too and he's ready to give the relationship another shot. [Nicholas] wants a more low-key girlfriend and Riley fits the bill.

Sure, we can see how it might be tough to date someone as talented and gorgeous and wealthy as Jen. But somehow, we think most guys would be able to swallow their pride:

Ok not a big JLaw fan but I have to give her credit and say this report is completely false in my opinion. Seems like something someone completely fabricated to get clicks which is such a shame. JLaw shows no signs of having an exploded Hollywood ego. She does everything she can to stay out of the limelight, no twitter no instgram, always avoiding the paps. if she had this exploded ego this article mentions why would she try so hard to stay out of the lime light she would be up in it every day like Miley, Kim K, etc. She even goes to great lengths to keep her relationship with Nic private. Plus Riley has boyfriend named Ben that she lives with, her and Nic made a movie together so they are friends. Men and women can be friends without being more.

Regardless how jealous Hoult gets about Jennifer, it won't matter. He does not feel comfortable when a woman surpasses him career wise, so it isn't just Jennifer, it will be about any woman he dates or marries. For Riley it could end the same way. She could all of a sudden become famous for her indie movies plus being the granddaughter of Elvis and having a modeling career sets her up to also make it or surpass Hoult. It might be better for him to get himself established first before dating "A-list" women, so maybe he might feel more secure within himself. When you're young it's hard to see things in a realistic way, but I know that Jennifer will find someone who will appreciate her talent and not feel threatened by it.

If that is truly how he feels, then he sounds kind of douchey and Jen is way better off without him. She has a big heart and it will probably take her a while to get over him, but there are plenty of fish in the sea, Jen. Find someone who you can be yourself around and doesn't make you feel guilty for being successful.

He doesn't have to be "jelly". He knows her better than anyone else, maybe she really does have an exploding ego. Maybe what we see of her isn't the truth. Shocking that an actress might be able to act like a nicer person than they are. Not saying that's what's happening since I love Jen and think she's an amazing person, but there's no way to know for sure. Why does he have to be jealous of her A list status since he's probably well on his way to becoming one himself?

HG, you nailed it!. Hoult is jealous of Jennifer Lawrence's career. I completely agree with the sentiments of the article...Hoult is jealous and Jennifer Lawrence can do better. Oh, and if Hoult isn't into fame why did he sign up for so many high profile projects?....Hoult is full of it.
