    Still friends? That’s why he unfollowed her (I know he followed her again) and all of her friends.

    From what I’ve heard, Sophia is the one who dumped Jesse and he wasn’t so happy about it. And I also from what I’ve heard, Sophia has already moved on with someone else. She sure doesn’t waste time in between relationships!

  • MollyBD

    I didn’t know they were a couple.

  • Lola

    They, right now are anything but friends. Sophia is the one who broke up with him because it’s trademark Sophia. A year into the relationship she needs to break up with them because they want to settle down and take the next step and she runs screaming for the hills.

  • Nicola

    She should probably consider separating her work from her personal life. What was he? The fourth co-star that she’s been with?

  • Sunny

    “Grew apart?” Could have fooled anyone who followed them. Up until the last three weeks or so they were as close as ever, then again they are actors. Think it’s a combo of a lot of things, her ex’s death, Jesse wanting to settle down, Sophia putting her friends first etc. I quite doubt they’re friends at the moment given the great instagram unfollow of 2015 but I hope they can get back to being friends for the sake of the show. Wish them both the best.

  • Lexi

    Fifth. Chad, Jon, James, Austin and Jesse.

    Doubt she’ll date anyone else from CPD though; they’re all pretty much in a relationship.

  • Delores Pauldo

    Didn’t know they was dating!

  • brooke kelly

    And everyone criticizes her ex husband chad Michael murray for not being able to keep a relatioship going oh and for dating co stars

  • Platynum

    I didnt even know they were dating…..wth

  • Debra

    How did they grow apart, they worked together. Maybe she was too busy trying to save the world (yes she is a lovely person for trying to do so),but it must be difficult to have a relationship with someone who is focused on everything else, but your relationship. I think she has made a big mistake, but I guess she has to follow her own path in life.

  • gradybridges

    CMM constantly cheats so that’s why he fails so much

  • brooke kelly

    Yeah and how does anyone really know that. a rumor is simply just a rumor .

  • Tiff

    Wishing them both the best, but this is sad overall. Really though he was going to be it for her.
    Hopefully it doesn’t impact the show – I can’t imagine it will be easy (at least not at first) to play sexual tension when there’s likely just tension now. Hopefully there’s the rest of their hiatus for them to get themselves together before filming resumes.

  • lshelton22

    Who’s the new guy?

  • Mads_22

    I love Sophia. She’s one of my favorite actresses. But she’s got a really bad habit dating her co-stars.

  • Mads_22

    The most people criticized Chad for was cheating on Sophia with Paris Hilton.

  • Tiff

    Any idea who the new guy is? Or will the announcement on that come tomorrow? Last time Just Jared posted about her breakup from Dan (r.i.p), it was pretty much damage control to ensure people knew she was broken up before news came out about her dating Jesse, even though it was pretty obvious by then.

  • Lexi

    I’m not quite sure yet. I’ve been hearing she was for sure seeing someone, but no name has been revealed quite yet. I know there has been rimors about Dana Brunetti, but I can’t confirm it’s him.

    However, I have heard ftom someone else that the new guy may have caused the breaking (this part I don’t buy). We’ll see!

  • Tiff

    Her tweets today confused me. Is she just pushing back at anyone for writing about her personal life? She didn’t deny it – and she’s usually one who sets the record straight pretty quick. So was her tweet just tongue in check for tabloids to mind their own business because she knows what’s going on in her life? I get what she means, but the tabloids don’t put those articles out for her, they put them out for the public – who don’t know what’s going on in her life, and are interested in knowing.
    I don’t want to pry and I don’t want to personally invade her privacy, but if it’s out there, I’m going to read it and be curious.

  • Lexi

    She’s probably just pissed that words got out and now people know they were dating when they always made sure to deny it. I guess she knows it’s not good for her image, so she just call tabloids out. After all, her fans are so crazy about her, they’ll probably go after these tabloids and call them out for making rumors. That’s how I see this.
    It was obvious they were together and now they’re not anymore.

  • Sunny

    But why even bother, it just perpetuates the story and makes it look like you’re denying the breakup? Neither one of them ever outright said ‘No, im not dating Sophia/Jesse.’ Nothing has made sense about any of this nonsense. His best friends are still following her on IG and liking her posts, even about love. Would you do that if your best friend was so ‘scorned?’ I think they both need a reality check, stop acting like spoiled brats and get on with it. You’re too old to be playing middle school relationship games. I would just appreciate that they they not insult the intelligence of their ‘fans’ who happen to have common sense.

  • Sunny

    Dana is her manager’s best friend or some such, highly doubt anything there.

  • Lexi

    I completely agree and from what I am told, from a usually accurate person, the new guy isn’t really part of the whole Hollywood industry. We’ll see I guess!

  • Lexi

    Again, I completely agree.

  • Sunny

    The person I think that is being floated is inaccurate. I don’t want to name him but think he’s just a friend entrenched in her circle who has a gf already. I could be wrong of course since I was questioing it myself last week but I don’t think she’d be that silly..

  • Tiff

    Maybe it will do her well to be with someone outside of Hollywood. The question is, does he live in Chicago and will he go there while she’s filming; location seems to be critical in her relationships.

  • Lexi

    Cory? He’s such a cutie! Sorry, had to say it.

    As I said, I don’t know the name of the new guy, could be him, could be someone else. Btw, from what I’ve heard, he was single when he moved to LA to spend the summer, it was actually why he decided to move; he didnt have anyone waiting for him in Texas.

    Anyways, I wouldnt be against her and Cory, lol. And I think it would be good for her to date someone who isn’t an actor or in the industry. Just like Dan was; they were a pretty good match.

    Of course, I’m not Sophia; she can do what she wants but Inthink this would be the best fit for her.

  • Lexi

    It depends of what he does. If it’s the guy rumored to be, he seems like he has lots of free time and loves to travel, so it wouldnt be much of a problem. I guess we’ll see.

  • Tiff

    Hope she’s happy in whatever she does, really. But right into another relationship? Has she ever been single for long?

    Gonna be honest in saying that I’m still really sad about her and Jesse not working out. Wouldn’t want either of them in a relationship where they’re both not feeling it, but I just can’t quite fathom what went wrong.

  • birdie

    I read a Blind Item about her being exclusive with two guys (Jesse and someone else??) but she’s been cheating on them both with an ex from California. Is this true??

  • Lexi

    From what I’ve noticed about the timeline in between relationship whether serious or not is that she’s never single from long. Pretty sure she started dating Jesse 2-3 weeks after calling it off with Dan, so I’m not that surprised about that new guy thing.

    Not sure about what happenend either. Been hearing lots of stuff I won’t post here because I’m not sure of how accurate it is.

    Whatever works for her I guess!

  • Sunny

    Pretty certain he definitely has a girlfriend but yes, to each their own. All nonsense if you ask me. I actually think Jesse’s been/is/was the best fit for her, she’s seemed most happy the past year and a half or so up until the past three weeks. It’s all just so bizarre. Dots don’t add up as my Granny would say. I should have learned my lesson by now not to ship real life duos.

  • Sunny

    I don’t mean your post is nonsense, just the situation! :)

  • Mads_22

    I just hope this doesn’t mess with their characters too much on Chicago PD. Like one of them leaving the show (aka Jesse’s character getting killed off or something) because of their break up. Cause that would really suck.

  • Lexi

    Only exes that lives in California are Chad and Dan (r.i.p). So, I would say completely false.

  • Lexi

    He had a girlfriend, but I think they broke up before he left to California. But yeah, I think we’ll just have to wait and see what happens during the summer. :)

    But yeah, kinda weird how everything went down.

  • amandares

    I am laughing my butt off right now. JJ is such a joke now, give me a break. Read their f*cking tweets from today.

  • amandares

    She dated Austin long before he ever starred on One Tree Hill, so he wasn’t even a costar at the beginning of their relationship.

  • no one

    Why would you dump that handsome guy?

  • no one

    mte!!!! I don’t want CPD without Jesse!

  • Mads_22

    Me either. Unfortunately Jay would be more of an expendable character than Erin. But I don’t think it will come to that. Sophia was able to be professional and work with her ex husband for 4 more years on OTH after he cheated, and they divorced. Plus they had to kiss from time to time. She and Jesse should be fine.

  • jaelyn96

    That was a lie the blind said she would leave Jesse home in LA while she brought he ex on set with her when she filmed. How can that be when Jesse is on the same show as her

  • Yasir Mehmood

    This is not happening first time, she has managed to do it many times, any way its her right to decide about herself.
    We can not comment this break up as Autumn season in sofia’s life :), if it is then she should download the autumn wallpaper from my wallpaper site http://www.wallpaperlite.com/Free-and-colorful-wallpapers-category-wise.php?selectedCategoryID=8&selectedCategoryName=Autumn%20Wallpapers

  • Anna

    So many speculations. Just check out their twitter posts from last night. And please, stop spreading rumours that are clearly not true. Thanks.

  • Anna

    I think the ¨spoiled brats¨ just slammed all of your rumours down last night at twitter and instagram.

  • Anna

    HAHAHHAHAHAHAH. Please, do me a favour and go read Sophia´s tweet from last night. Jesse´s too. Pretty sure they are friends (at the least ;) ). What a nice speculation you had though.

  • Anna

    Just go check their twitter and instagram accounts. Do it. Where is all of the gossip now? What do you have to say to that?

  • Lexi

    What they did yesterday is called damage control so people stop talking about it and tagging them.

    The day of their “supposed lunch” date, Sophia was seen around with Jenny and Cory. No Jesse. A lot of people don’t buy their little act. In a way, I understand why they did that; it must be pretty annoying to have “fans” harrassing you about your personal lives.

  • Lexi

    They can write what they want on twitter; it doesn’t make it true either. If I write that that sky is green it doesn’t make it true.

    You are allowed to believe what you want: I’m not asking you to believe what I wrote, but I decide to believe what I have been told. That’s it.
