Did Halsey Just Confirm Why She and Evan Peters Broke Up? She Liked a Tweet Condemning Him

Actor Evan Peters and singer Halsey are no longer a couple. While this first became clear months ago, a June 2020 Twitter action taken by Halsey sends the message home. Read on to learn about their relationship and what may have led to their split.

Halsey and Evan Peters began dating in 2019

The singer and the actor were first linked in mid-2019. After they were photographed at an event for Peters’ show American Horror Story in October 2019, Halsey went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she confirmed their relationship by calling him her boyfriend. They then continued to celebrate Halloween in costume.

A month later, the couple caused a stir when paparazzi photographs were published. Many thought that Halsey was pregnant, but she later denied this on social media. She wrote on Twitter, “Still not pregnant. Still just allergic to gluten. Still love pancakes.”

She removed photos of him from her Instagram

In the months that followed, the two refrained from attending any major events as a couple. Halsey performed at Jingle Ball, on Saturday Night Live, and began her Manic World Tour. But they kept up their relationship on social media.

That is, until March. Amidst the backdrop of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Halsey purged the few photos of Peters that were on her Instagram page, aside from one from Halloween 2019. It seemed pretty clear that they were no longer together.

It’s become very clear to me that some of you need to see what I’ve seen. Please swipe through this. These pictures and videos don’t even scratch the surface. It’s easy from the comfort of your home to watch looting and rioting on television and condone the violent measures being taken by forces. But what you don’t see is innocent peaceful protestors being shot at and tear gassed and physically assaulted relentlessly. You think it’s not happening, it’s only the “thugs” and the “riots”, right? The police are keeping you safe right? You’re wrong. This is happening everywhere. And innocent people exercising their rights to speech and assembly are facing violence and abuse of power. With all of our medical professionals being CONSUMED and EXHAUSTED with Covid, there is little to no medical attention available. I have first hand treated men women and children who have been shot in the chest, the face, the back. Some will lose vision some have lost fingers. I have been covered in innocent blood. My father is a black man. My mother is an EMT. This week I had to put those two associations together in ways that have horrified me. This is NOT a virtue signaling post. But I HAVE to show you what I am witnessing with my own eyes. With Trump’s decision today to enforce the mobilization of armed forces on our own citizens, this has escalated beyond your privilege and comfort to not care. Please care. We are begging you to care. This is war on Americans. This is everyone’s problem. Everyone’s. #BLACKLIVESMATTER

Months later, Halsey began to make headlines for another reason. Following the death of George Floyd in May 2020, she attended peaceful Black Lives Matter protests in Los Angeles. Not only was the artist there to support the Black community, but she used her platform to show those at home what was really going on.

“It’s easy from the comfort of your home to watch looting and rioting on television and condone the violent measures being taken by forces,” Halsey wrote in the above Instagram post full of images and videos. She also brought along medical supplied to the May 31 protest and helped to bandage up those who were injured.

What did Peters tweet?

Peters is not quite as active as Halsey on social media. So many took notice after he retweeted a video in which a person was cheering on the police chasing down looters as seen on TV. Peters later wrote that he “unknowingly retweeted it” adding, “I sincerely apologize if anyone was offended.” He then joined Black Out Tuesday.

But of course, the receipts of his action remain. A screenshot was shared on Twitter, with the user writing, “@Evan_Peters is this why halsey broke up with you.” Halsey subsequently liked the tweet. Whether or not that was why the two broke up, it looks like Halsey isn’t exactly on good terms with her ex.
