Freida Pinto and Dev Patel Split
Freida Pinto and Dev Patel have split. The longtime couple has decided to part ways after nearly six years together. No specific reason was given for breakup. Gossip Cop has reached out for comment. Us Weekly first reported the news. According to the outlet, Pinto and Patel quietly split a while ago. In October, she celebrated her birthday without him.
The couple met on the set of Slumdog Millionaire in 2008 and began dating the following year. Pinto was previously engaged to Rohan Antao. She has starred in movies like Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Immortals. Patel appeared in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and can currently be seen on the HBO series “The Newsroom.”
In a 2011 chat with Interview, Pinto said of her relationship with Patel, “I don’t think anybody — not even family or friends — can understand what the two of us have been through. As beautiful as it is, there are parts of it that just become a bit tiring to deal with. The paparazzi, for example, and not having privacy. He made a statement unknowingly once and he said, ‘Oh, she is like my soul mate,’ and we were not dating or anything back then, and it became this big hoopla. Like, ‘Oh my god! How could he have said that? What does that mean?’ But I guess he was right in a way; we are soul mates.”
