Billie Lourd went through what we hope will be the hardest experience of her life last December, and boyfriend Taylor Lautner was there by her side for that. Even as recently as May, the two still seemed joined at the hip, attending a Britney Spears concert together and posting about it.
But for over a month now, they've both seemed to ignore each other on social media, declining even to "like" each other's photos. People noticed and wondered if something was up.
Well, it looks like this young, unspeakably beautiful couple has called it quits.
Billie Lourd is one of the stars of Ryan Murphy's Scream Queens and she appeared in Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, but the world knows her best as Carrie Fisher's daughter.
And, of course, as Debbie Reynolds' granddaughter.
Fans knew who she was, but she became impossible to miss after Carrie Fisher's tragic death.
That's no insult to her budding career.
Taylor Lautner might not have such famous relatives, but he's extremely well-known.
Mostly, even now, for his role in the Twilight series that made no shortage of grown women tweet all sorts of things before finding out that he was only 17 when New Moon came out.
The guy's got abs for days.
Together, they were a lovely couple.
This is no longer just speculation based on who does and doesn't double-tap photos on Instagram.
Billie Lourd and Taylor Lautner have broken up for realsies, according to People.
"They aren’t together anymore but they are still friendly," their source says.
"She’s really focused on her work right now."
That's more than understandable.
We're not going to make this about Carrie Fisher's death and Billie throwing herself into her work to cope.
(Though that could be a factor)
Billie is only at the start of what could be a long and epic career, and she surely wants to be taken seriously as an actress.
But we really don't know what brought about this split.
And though Billie Lourd included the term "Eiffel Tower" in the captions of this photo of herself with Taylor Lautner and John Stamos a while back ... we don't think that this breakup was caused by post-threesome fallout.
She might not even know that Eiffel Tower is a sex position ... even though that level of naivete would be hard to imagine in anyone her age, especially Carrie Fisher's daughter.
Whatever the cause, gone are the days when Billie Lourd appears to post about wanting a threesome with John Stamos.
But you know what?
We're not going to fall into that trap of bemoaning a couple breaking up just because we got used to the idea of them as a couple.
They're both young and talented and beautiful.
(Yes, even Taylor Lautner, who we swear wasn't just hired for his almost comically perfect body ... probably)
They have their whole lives ahead of them.
Billie and Taylor will always have their memories, but life usually involves a whole bunch of different lovers before you find your perfect match.
If you ever do.
We hope that they're both doing okay, emotionally.
Breakups are hard.
And we especially hope for the best for Billie, because let's not pretend that seven months is enough time to get over losing two of the most important people in your life.
Honestly, I'm still not over Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds.
It's impossible to imagine that she is.
But Billie Lourd is well-spoken and a skilled actress.
She's amazing and she can do anything.
