It looks like we have yet another relationship to throw onto the burning pile of famous people relationships. Except this time, it concerns a famous person that I forgot was engaged. That’s what happens when you don’t spend your vacation choreographing cheesy photo shoots for Instagram?
According to UsWeekly, Hilary Swank, star of The Next Karate Kid, has called it quits with her tennis coach fiancé, Ruben Torres. Hilary and Ruben got engaged a little over two months ago after dating for about a year. Something must have turned shitty during the wedding planning, because a rep for Hilary tells UsWeekly that a wedding isn’t going to happen. Hilary subtly confirmed she was done with Ruben by deleting any traces of him from her Instagram page, including a picture from March that was taken shortly after he proposed. She also showed up to the French Open this weekend without her engagement ring on.
This would have been Hilary’s second marriage. Hilary was married to Chad Lowe from 1997 to 2007.
Hilary’s rep didn’t give a reason for why they were calling off their engagement. But I really wish they did, because now my mind is running through all the possible dramatic situations that could kill an engagement after barely two months. Did Hilary catch Reuben “playing doubles” with someone else? Did she “return” the ring? Did Hilary “spin” another dude’s “balls“? I know that last one makes zero sense, but I’m totally in the dark here and I’m running out of tennis puns. Help me out, Hillary’s rep!
Here’s a single and ready to mingle Hilary at the French Open this weekend. Leonardo DiCaprio was also there. I’d make a joke about Hilary setting off his Available Woman Nearby radar, but as if Leo would ever have sex with someone who has more Oscars than him (“Two? You have two?? I don’t feel well, I’m going home.”)
