Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss


Chris Zylka is apologizing for slamming ex-girlfriend Lucy Hale, hours after he suggested they split because “she decided she was too good.”

As Gossip Cop previously reported, the Amazing Spider-Man actor was responding to a fan on Twitter, who asked about his “perfect” girlfriend. Following his passive-aggressive response, Zylka stood by his comment, saying, “If you all even knew :(… Never any disrespect towards anyone. Only if you say what you say you should stick to it. If you say you love then love.”

But it seems he has since had a change of heart, going on to praise Hale in a series of tweets on Tuesday night. Zylka began, “I’d like to apologize about my previous comments. Lucy is not only one of the most talented people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing but also one the most beautiful inside, and out.”

“Anyone who’s ever watched, or had the pleasure of meeting her knows this to be true,” he continued. “I apologize for tarnishing any view anyone has on this amazing women [sic],” Zylka said. “I had the honor of loving her. That love will never fade, as your love should never fade from her is well [sic].” He added, “She’s going to change the world one day. And the last thing I want to do is be any reason for her to look bad in any way.”

“She [sic] a remarkable human with an infectious personality, and a heart bigger than anyone’s I’ve ever known,” Zylka continued, adding, “Proud to love her.” Zylka concluded, “And I’ll continue to be her biggest fan as I know she will to me too. Love you all and be well and don’t forget [her ‘Pretty Little Liars’ character] ARIA RULES!!!!!”

Hale has stayed mum on Zylka’s comments, just tweeting to her fans, “Just wanted to say a thank you and I love you to you all xx.” What do you think of Zylka’s apology?
