GOSSIP Girl star Ed Westwick was cleared of sexual assault allegations in July.
The former Gossip Girl actor has split from his girlfriend Jessica Serfaty after being cleared of sexual assault allegations in July.
The mother-of-one stood by her beau throughout the ordeal and shared her happiness when Ed was cleared of all charges.
While Ed fell into a pit of silence after the allegations appeared, Jessica felt no fear in sharing pictures of her beau on Instagram ands sharing loved-up snaps of the duo.
The pair confirmed their relationship in May last year, but reports now suggest that they have broken up.
“They’re just taking time apart to work on themselves and their careers.”
A source close to Jessica revealed to The Sun: “Ed did not dump Jess, I think they still love each other – they’re just taking time apart to work on themselves and their careers.
“They had a flat together and remodelled and furnished it, but she is now living in her own apartment elsewhere.”
Although the pair had only been together a few months at the time, it was rumoured that Ed was looking to propose before the allegations arose.
Last year, accusations of a series nature were made against Ed Westwick.
The nation were in shock over the allegations, and Ed was soon replaced in BBC’s Agatha Christie adaptation Ordeal by Innocence, and he shortly after shut himself off from social media, allowing his Instagram account to remain silent since November 2017.
In July this year, the sexual assault charges were dropped.
When it was revealed that the charges wouldn’t go any further, Jessica took to Instagram to share a snap of a very smiley Ed, writing: “Very happy for this man. After everything, justice was served.”
Fans were sharing their happiness for the actor, with thousands of comments flooding in to support him.
It appears that there’s no bad blood between the pair, with the source believing that they’re just taking some time apart.
After making his career in acting, particularly after rising to fame in 2007 with Gossip Girl as the infamous Chuck Bass, Ed took a break after the allegations.
Ed should return to acting soon, after vowing to return to his career after the charges were dropped.
