Wow, that was fast! Less than 2 months after news broke that Lea Michele & Robert Buckley are dating, the 29-year-old actress and the 35-year-old actor are already calling it quits.
According to Us Weekly, “[They] just found they were better off as friends and wanted to support each other’s careers.” Their “busy schedules” are said to be part of the reason for the breakup as well. Though, weirdly, their schedules have recently been coinciding, considering they were both filming their new Hulu sci-fi series Dimension 404 starting the middle of last month, so…
Whatever the case, it’s also strange timing because the two spent Fourth of July weekend with Lea’s Glee co-star, Becca Tobin, Becca’s fiance, Zach Martin, AND Lea’s parents, Mark and Edith Sarfati. That was only a couple days ago!
This is the second time the Scream Queens star experienced heartbreak this year. If you recall, she and her former gigolo boyfriend, Matthew Paetz, split up in February.
Guess we can add the blond hottie to Lea’s dating timeline now, huh?
