They became one of Hollywood’s most glamorous couples after love blossomed on the set of Bohemian Rhapsody.
But speculation is rife that Rami Malek and Sing Street star Lucy Boynton may have split after more than five years together.
Malek, 42, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury in the 2018 film, has not been seen publicly with Ms Boynton, 29, since the Bafta Awards in London in February.
Last week he was spotted enjoying drinks at a pub in Notting Hill, west London, with Mamma Mia’s Dominic Cooper, 45, and Rachel Brosnahan, 33, star of the hit TV show The Marvelous Mrs Maisel – with no Lucy in sight.
Malek and Ms Brosnahan, who is married to the US actor Jason Ralph, later strolled through nearby Primrose Hill, giggling and clutching plastic glasses of what appeared to be rosé wine.

Rumours about a split have been circulating since Malek was spotted ‘deep in conversation’ with The Crown star Emma Corrin, 27, and holding hands with another mystery blonde at a Bruce Springsteen gig earlier this month.
Meanwhile Ms Boynton, who played Mary Austin, Mercury’s almost-wife, in Bohemian Rhapsody, went to Wimbledon alone just over a week ago. In recent years, she and Malek went together.
A Hollywood source said: ‘Rami is very private. When you go out with him he’s like catnip to the ladies because he’s so sweet and charming.But he never talks about his love life.
‘He and Lucy are very sweet together but there have been rumours for months they’ve split.’
Malek and Ms Brosnahan are in London working on a new film Amateur, about a CIA agent who hunts down his wife’s killers.

The movie, which is due out next year, also features The Matrix star Laurence Fishburne.
Malek, the son of Egyptian immigrants to the US, is one of Hollywood’s most versatile leading men and starred as Bond villain Safin in No Time To Die.
Ms Brosnahan meanwhile will play Lois Lane in the latest DC comic reboot – Superman: Legacy – which is due out in 2025.
