Scream Queen co-stars Billie Lourd and Taylor Lautner turned their on-screen couple into off-screen romance. But after eight months of dating, the two have called it quits, according to a People source.
The two were first caught kissing by their co-stars back in December, mirroring the developing relationship of her character Chanel #3 and his character Cassidy. Taylor later stood by her side when both her mother Carrie Fisher and grandmother Debbie Reynolds passed away within a day of each other.
According to the People source, the two are still friends. The split came about, as it often does in the industry, from work: “They aren’t together anymore but they are still friendly. [Billie’s] really focused on her work right now.”
Earlier in the year, Fisher’s brother Todd described Taylor’s support of Billie, following two back-to-back family losses, as, “The truth of the matter is the guy is – he’s pretty spectacular. He’s a really deep person and he has supported her amazing. He’s stepped up and acted like a husband would act. I mean, not that that’s what’s going on, but it’s just an amazing support system for her and I’m glad he’s in her life.”
