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.
Halsey attends #BlackLivesMatter protests
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.
