Emma Roberts is at the center of Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen’s split, sources have told several publications
According to The Blast, Bilson found text messages between Christensen and Roberts, his co-star in the upcoming romantic comedy film “Little Italy.” Those messages led Bilson to believe the two were having an inappropriate relationship.
Bilson and Christensen, both 36, split in September after nearly 10 years, Us Weekly revealed. They are also parents of a 2-year-old daughter.
“She’s full-time back in L.A. He’s in Toronto,” a source told Us. “They’ve been on the outs for a couple of months.”
The insider added: “They are completely, officially done.”
Bilson, who starred in “The O.C.,” met Christensen on the set of their 2008 film “Jumper” and got engaged that December, Us said.
They quietly called off their engagement in August 2010, only to reconcile three months later. However, they never made their relationship official by tying the knot.
In early September, Bilson and Roberts — the possible other woman in this triangle — both attended the opening night party of 29Rooms, a Brooklyn club and “funhouse of style, culture and technology.” But a source told Us Weekly that the actresses arrived several hours apart.
Over the years, Bilson and Christensen have generally kept their relationship private, though Bilson gushed about her life with the “Star Wars” actor in a May 2013 interview with Cosmopolitan.
“I’m a really good girlfriend,” she said. “I always put all that first in my life. I’m definitely the person who would make him his favorite dinner to come home to.”
She added, “I love to cook, so we make dinner at home a lot and watch movies.”
The 26-year-old Roberts, star of “Scream Queens” and “American Horror Story,” has previously been in an off-and-on relationship with Evan Peters since 2011, according to Us Weekly.
The two got in engaged in late 2013 after dating for about a year and a half, but called it quits in June 2015. The two reunited in August of that year only to split again in May 2016 and once again got back together in November 2016.
