Something must be in the water, because young celebrities are shacking up and breaking up left and right. Enter “Stranger Things” actress Millie Bobby Brown’s love life. The 14-year-old actress (yes, she’s just 14) broke things off with her musician boyfriend Jacob Sartorius, 15, on Tuesday.
To give some background, the two had been dating for roughly 7 months before they decided to call things quits. To be fair, though, 7 months is pretty long for two kids who probably can’t drive without their parents in the car.
They’re also treating this breakup as more of a “conscious uncoupling” (a la Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay’s Chris Martin), further proving their unsettling maturity levels.
“The decision with Jacob and I was completely mutual,” Brown wrote on her Instagram story Tuesday. “We are both happy and remaining friends.”
Sartorius shared similar feelings, saying, “The decision w mills was completely mutual & we are both happy and remaining friends.”
Fans online have noted that Millie and Jacob have apparently unfollowed each other on Instagram, but posts of their time together are still up on the social media platform.
The young couple started dating back in January, and celebrated New Years together. A month later, they celebrated Brown’s 14th birthday.
“Happy birthday to this beautiful girl, 14!!” Sartorius tweeted in February. “you’re the funniest, most caring person in the entire world. I hope this year brings you lots of great memories and moments you remember forever. Can’t wait to see you, I love you and miss you so much!! @milliebbrown”
