“I normally keep this kind of thing private but provided our public nature I feel the need to inform my fans,” Halsey’s statement read. “G-Eazy and I are taking some time apart. I’m eager to continue the upcoming passage of time dedicating myself to my art and my career, and the duration of my tour. I wish him the best. Thanks for respecting our privacy at this time.”
The couple was known for showing their affection for each other in public, onstage and in the studio. Their hit collaboration “Him & I” was performed together often, and G-Eazy told Billboard just days before the breakup that the two were in the studio making more songs together.
