“Lea is surrounded by her friends, who have rallied around her and support her,” a source close to the couple told PEOPLE. “She’s doing fine, focusing on her working, her music and her album.” The shocking break up apparently happened in early February 2016, but their split just became public now. Poor Lea! There’s no word on what caused the split at this time.
Their split comes just a month after reports surfaced that Lea and Matthew were engaged! Matthew allegedly proposed to Lea over the holidays, according to OK! magazine, after talking about taking the next step together for the past six months. Though her rep denied the claim, it didn’t change the fact that she raved over her deep love for Matthew, and how he helped her move on from Cory’s tragic death.
“I got back to that place where I was genuinely happy and strong and ready to live again and see the world and, you know, bring in more beautiful experiences. And that’s when someone miraculously came into my life,” she told Flare magazine. What happened between these two for things to go sour so quickly?
