It “was very amicable,” a source told E! News.
Why did they split? “They spent a lot of time apart because of work and it was difficult on their relationship,” added the source of Jennifer, who lives in LA, and Nicholas who lives in the UK.
There’s speculation about why they ended it and whether Nicholas has already moved on. He’s since been linked to two women.
A fan shared these photos on Twitter of Nicholas getting lunch with Equals co-star Kristen Stewart.
The actors were eating sushi in Tokyo at Tsukiji Fish Market. The fan wrote, “Had the best sushi breky this morning at Daiwa in Tsukiji Fish Market w/ famous peeps. #kristenstewart #nicholashoult.”
Adding the below, “Here’s another from this morning #KristenStewart #nicholashoult”.
Previously, it was reported by MSN’s TheFIX blog, that Nicholas and the Oscar-winner split over Jennifer’s “exploded ego.”
“Jen is still desperately trying to get back with Nicholas after he broke up with her,” said the source of the split. “They’re still talking but Nicholas is moving on. He hates how in love with fame Jen is, and he told her he hates dating an A-list actress.”
The source added, “That was the most hurtful to Jen because she’s worked so hard for her achievements and she’s so proud of her career. But Nic wants a more low-key girlfriend and Riley fits the bill.” TheFIX insider claims Nicholas hung out with Riley Keough at “No.8′s Philo Prom party in New York City” soon after his breakup with Jennifer.
Update 8/2/14: PEOPLE also confirms the split, writing “Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult have called it quits, multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE.”
