In 2017, talented American singer-songwriter and record producer Jack Antonoff and actress Lena Dunham called time on their long-term relationship. Following their breakup, the two have managed to retain a strong friendship. While Dunham is now unmarried, Antonoff is seeing Carlotta Kohl, a model and artist.
Breaking Up With A Five-Year Relationship
After a five-year romance that began in 2012, Antonoff and Dunham decided to separate in December 2017. The breakup, according to accounts, was a mutual decision. According to a source close to the couple, Jack and Lena were growing apart, thus it was only natural for them to call it quits where they were.
Dunham maintained their two dogs when the couple split up, while the singer kept their Brooklyn house. Aside from sharing personal belongings and pets, Dunham stated in a 2020 interview with Cosmopolitan UK that sustaining a stable relationship required a lot of focused effort.
The frontman of Bleachers and his ex-girlfriend were last spotted in public in 2017 at a Grammys pre-party. Dunham claimed on her Twitter account a month before the separation news broke in November 2017 that she misheard Antonoff talking about a proposal to his sister.
Dunham also said she heard “Lena” and “finger,” leading her to believe the Antonoff siblings were discussing the engagement ring and proposing.
“Forever Best Friends”
Even after their breakup, the two musicians never hesitate to express their affection for one another on social media as friends. Dunham, 34, shared a sweet selfie with her ex-boyfriend on her Instagram account in June 2018. She was photographed laying her head on Antonoff’s shoulder and referring to him as her “best friend forever.”
This was not the first time the ex-couple was seen on social media swapping posts and messages. In June 2018, the two had a playful exchange in the comments area of Dunham’s post. He wrote, “Why are you awake?” “Because it’s great time to catch you on the gram, four eyes,” she said.
Dunham also revealed in her interview with Cosmopolitan UK that the lead singer of the Bleachers taught her how to keep a positive friendship after their breakup.
We met when I was very young and fell in love. I was 25. Looking back, I see that we had a terrific time together and that we looked out for one other.
She also stated that love does not simply fade away, and that she still loves and cares for him.
“You don’t lose your affection for someone just because you don’t have them,” the actress concluded.
It’s just that it’s no longer feasible logistically. He is one of my closest friends. Has it been easy at all times? It’s not easy to share your life with someone. The actress from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood stated she is unmarried and spends her time with her dogs in the same interview.
Antonoff Has a New Girlfriend
Antonoff was said to be dating Lorde, a young sensation and long-time partner, after his separation with Dunham. The allegations died down immediately after Lorde clarified that the two are not dating in an Instagram Live Session in 2018.
The We Are Young singer was later seen with Carlotta Kohl. While the actual date of their union is unknown, reports claim it occurred in the year 2019. Kohl tweeted a photo of them falling asleep on each other inside a car in April of this year. Kohl posted the photo to wish Antonoff a happy birthday, describing him as her favorite person/pillow.
In May 2020, the music producer also published a photo with his mother and girlfriend in a car. The two love to post images of themselves on social media, giving their followers major couple goals.
