As the Internet just proved with its insane theory about why Justin Timberlake might still love Britney Spears, sometimes, breaking up with someone isn’t the end of your story — the world won’t let it be.
Despite the fact that Chloe Grace Moretz and Brooklyn Beckham have reportedly thrown in the towel on their young love, the former couple just got a rather in-your-face reminder of the days of yore: Chloe’s new Teen Vogue cover.
Coming just two weeks following their breakup buzz, the new cover showcases a fresh-faced Chloe in an embrace with a young man in a backwards cap. With Brooklyn having been spotted in the same clothes as the man in question while on set with the actress, it was quickly deduced that the mystery guy is, in fact, Chloe’s ex.
What’s more, Chloe went on to discuss him and their long-distance relationship in the magazine’s accompanying article. “We both understand that there will be times when we can’t talk because we are too busy,” she told interviewer and fellow actress Julianne Moore. “Some of it is just based on trust. If you feel that you can trust each other and go eight hours without talking, then you have something that can withstand space and time.”
Hmmmm. That’s a far cry from the rumors flying around about the two splitting due to Chloe’s lack of trust and inability to handle the distance!
Through Brooklyn made no mention of the cover on social media, Chloe, for one, seems to be taking it all in stride, proudly posting the shot to her page, along with praise for the photo. “Couldn’t be happier to be your @TVYoungHollywood cover girl again!” she writes. “Beautiful story shot by @bruce_weber. :)”
Perhaps she’s following her own advice? “This year especially, I had to realize that it’s okay to ask for help,” she told Julianne. “It’s okay to not know. As a young woman you feel like you really need to have everything figured out — but it’s alright to say, ‘I don’t know. I have absolutely no idea.’”
