After almost a year of dating, Halsey and G-Eazy announced their split on July 3. Their relationship timeline proves just how inseparable Halsey and G-Eazy were before the heartbreaking announcement. Halsey released a statement via Instagram Story that read: “I normally keep this kind of thing private but provided our public nature I feel the need to inform my fans. G-Eazy and I are taking some time apart."
The singer's Instagram statement continued: “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.”
Although they were only together about a year, the former couple never shied away from showcasing moments of PDA on social media or expressing their feelings for one another in the media. They also collaborated on a hit song, "Him & I," which they performed together often and they directed and co-starred in the song's accompanying short film. According to Genius, Halsey told 97.1 AMP-FM in Los Angeles:
It’s like we really made this record about our real lives and hopefully we get to share that with other people who feel similarly about each other and we’re really fortunate. We live really cool lives and we get to do really cool stuff together and I just hope that, you know, some young couple somewhere in a slower part of world maybe can hear it and maybe imagine what it would be like for just four minutes.
