Matt Prokop Sarah Hyland Break Up
Rumors started to swirl on Aug. 25, that the couple may have called it quits after Sarah showed up to the 66th Annual Emmy’s without a date. Us Weekly is now reporting that the couple have gone their separate ways and that it was an amicable break.
Sarah’s rep told HollywooLife.com, “I can confirm they broke up.”
A source close to the actress told the magazine, “Sarah’s doing fine. It didn’t work out. She’s young,” a source said. “They decided they would be better off as friends.”
A source revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Sarah was dancing with plenty of guys at the HBO Emmy after party on Aug. 25. Our source dished, “she was definitely acting single and ready to mingle.”
The longtime couple first met back in 2008 when they were both auditioning for High School Musical 3: Senior Year. Their romanced blossomed, and they even got the chance to work together on the Disney Channel original movie, “Geek Charming,” which stars Sarah as the popular girl in High School who is won over by Matt’s adorably geeky character.
During the length of their relationship, the couple lived together and co-parented their beloved 4-year-old Maltipoo, Barkley Bixby.
Matt Prokop Supports Sarah Hyland After Attack
Just six months ago, things seemed to be going extremely well between the couple. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, on Feb. 18, the actress was inappropriately touched by a fan during a trip to Australia.
A 29-year-old man named, Nedal Lakmas shocked Sarah when he grabbed her breast at the Modern Family party — an event celebrating the fact that the cast is filming in Australia. As she fled the party, Sarah was seen pushing the man away and screaming, ” Don’t touch me there!”
Matt publicly supported his girlfriend by accompanying her on set with four bodyguards to make sure that this never happens again. His tweet about the incident was definitely shocking, but it’s understandable why Matt is so upset. Just two days after the incident, he wrote, “To the a**hole who assaulted Sarah tonight I hope to God you don’t see next week.”
Clearly these two loved each other very much. We wish them both the best, and hope that they will be able to remain friendly.
