Bella Thorne and Benjamin Mascolo have decided to end their relationship.
Thorne and Mascolo have broken up more than a year after announcing their engagement in March 2021.
“Bella Thorne and Benjamin Mascolo have broken up, canceling their over-a-year engagement,” a source tells PEOPLE. “Their conflicting schedules resulted in a significant amount of time apart, which eventually led to the separation, but the two have parted ways peacefully.”
Thorne, 24, with whom she and YouTuber Tana Mongeau had been in an open relationship, were originally linked in April 2019, just days after Thorne announced her breakup.
On the red carpet for the international premiere of Thorne’s directorial debut, Her and Him, at the Oldenburg Film Festival in Germany in September 2019, the couple displayed some PDA.
When did Bella Thorne and Benjamin Mascolo Get engaged?
In January 2021, Thorne suggested an engagement on Instagram, posting a photo of Mascolo with multiple wedding ring emojis in the caption. “Big announcement coming soon,” wrote the star of Famous in Love. “I’m overjoyed.”
After nearly two years of dating, she and the Italian singer announced their engagement three months later. “She said YES @bellathorne,” Mascolo wrote on Instagram, while Thorne used her Instagram Story to show off her pear-shaped diamond engagement ring.
“Thank you for being such a wonderful child. I adore you to death. We’re getting married, which is fantastic. Both in Italy and in America, there is a celebration “In a video posted to his Instagram Story, Mascolo remarked.
The two recently co-starred in the romantic comedy Time Is Up, which will be released in September 2021, and attended multiple red carpet events together to promote the film, including Rome Film Fest.
They chatted with TooFab shortly after the premiere of Mascolo’s acting debut, Time Is Up. “To act with someone for the first time and have been the leader of the film is so difficult for anyone, and it happens so rarely,” Thorne noted at the time.
“So I had no idea what to expect when I went into it. I simply trusted Ben “she went on. “He was a natural right away, and in this field, it takes a long time to learn.”
“We never had a quarrel the entire time we were filming, like there was never a new issue,” Thorne said. “I’ve also never worked with someone with whom I’ve had a romantic relationship. So I was like, “I don’t know,” but it was fantastic.”
“It’s wonderful to have this as a stepping stone in our relationship, and we’ve grown even closer because of it… It’s the first time we’ve worked together for so many hours a day, and we’re under a lot of stress and pressure, so we just went for it “‘ I told the outlet,’ he said. “We came out the other side stronger as a couple; it was a win-win situation in every way.”
