While Dakota Johnson was getting tied up in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’ her real-life romance was torn apart, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Right now, Dakota Johnson, 25, should be celebrating the success of her sexy S&M box office hit, Fifty Shades of Grey. Unfortunately, she’s now mourning the loss of her longtime boyfriend, Matthew Hitt, who decided to bail on her after the film turned her into a huge star. Ouch.
Dakota Johnson & Matthew Hitt Broke Up Over ‘Fifty Shades’
“[Dakota] has been way too busy to focus any attention to her relationship and Matthew totally shut her out of his life because of that,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Poor Dakota! Unfortunately, the now estranged couple’s problems didn’t start when her schedule exploded.
“He hated that she took the film,” the source explained. And, even worse, “he hated all the talk and rumors that she was in a relationship with Jamie [Dornan] but that was obviously all in his head.”
Wow. It sounds like Matthew might have been giving Dakota grief for quite some time, especially considering Fifty Shades was filming back in Dec. 2013.
Maybe this split was for the best — Dakota’s best.
Will Dakota & Matthew Get Back Together?
Not likely. Since Dakota’s life is so hectic and busy now with the success of Fifty Shades, it’s been easy for her to keep her mind off the split.
“[Dakota] would have mourned the break up more but keeping busy got her through it,” our source shared. “She misses the good times but it really doesn’t look like they will get back together.”
Unfortunately for this former couple, “too much has changed in their lives and she now has a completely different life to worry about.”
