Back in January reps confirmed that Antonoff and Girls creator Dunham had split after five years together. 

A report in US Weekly claimed the two ‘took forever to actually break up.’

‘It was very drawn out,’ an insider told the magazine, adding that the couple ‘had been slowly breaking up for the last six months.’ 

The source told the publication that ‘it just took way too long to pull off the band aid’ from the relationship, which reportedly came to a close in December.

Lena briefly discussed the split during an Instagram Live session on January 9, and told her fans that she is ‘still wearing’ a ring that Jack gave her.

‘Love is a really cool, powerful, eternal thing,’ she said. ‘It doesn’t have to be defined the way, we in Western culture, define it as beginnings and ends.’
