Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff of Fun. and Bleachers fame officially broke up this week after five years of him having to deal with her broadcasting every thought in her head to the dismay of many. In a related story, Dlisted’s own Allison may have been revealed to be a powerful psychic, because she guessed that the “musician” that Jack might be currently dating is his new favorite artist – interpretive dancing queen Lorde. He produced her latest record. Allison, we’re not going to need you to cough up the Powerball numbers now. Thank you.
ONTD launched an investigation (they posted a bunch of Instagram pics of Lorde and Jack delighting in each other’s company) into whether Lorde and Jack are together. They might be on to something cuz’ a couple pages of Lorde’s Instagram feed looks like a Jack Antonoff Tiger Beat spread. Example:
happy birthday to one of the best. so happy to know you and annoy you daily and so thankful to be in a long creative conversation with you about what it means to be alive. ours is a relationship that will be special and vital for a long time i'm thinking. so many memories all over the world in studios and restaurants and at concerts, laughing, crying (me), drinking all of the juices and occasionally disgusting you by walking barefoot through brooklyn.. you make a killer soft boiled egg and you're so fucking patient and i love all of your weird outfit/haircut/beard phases!!!! (i have some very grim photos but only posted the cute ones except for this face swap which is literally the worst thing i've ever seen) you're the top. and so proud that today you have released the first song from an excellent album. JA + EYO forever and always
Jack produced and worked very closely with Lorde on her latest album Melodrama (a lot of it was recorded in Jack and Lena’s apartment). He appears in the “Green Light” video. Lena also deleted an Instagram post that she made about Melodrama a few months ago.
But Lorde might not be Zealand’s very first celebrity home wrecker. UsWeekly says that Lena and Jack were getting on each other’s nerves for a llloonnggg time (six months).
“They had been slowly breaking up for the last six months. It was very drawn out,” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. “They took forever to actually break up. It just took way too long to pull off the bandaid.”
Lorde’s bold if she did get with Jack whilst living on Lena’s couch, or whatever. Speaking of Lena, she’s in Deer Valley and keeping it together. Expect a drunken phone call pleading for empathy any night now, Kylo Ren.
Dunham is still deeply saddened by the relationship ending, but she’s finding comfort in her busy career. “Lena is pretty broken up about it, but is distracting herself with work,” says the same insider. “She has a house in Deer Valley with some female writers for Sundance and is excited for a girls’ trip away.”
It’s totally possible that Lorde was just a 21-year-old body to cry on. But well, Jack did play piano for her when she did SNL. THEY’RE OBVIOUSLY FUCKING.
