Maisie Williams Starts Online Dating After Longtime Boyfriend ALREADY Moved On With Model Post-Split!
Well, that was fast! Maisie Williams and longtime boyfriend Reuben Selby only announced like two and a half weeks ago that they were breaking up after nearly five years together. But apparently Reuben is already in another relationship??
Multiple sources over the past couple weeks have reported he’s moved on with model Phoebe Torrance. In fact, the two were said to have been seen being affectionate at London Fashion Week before the breakup announcement. WHAT?!
(Oh, this is her btw…)
We’ve known very little about what actually happened here — Maisie keeps her private life very private indeed — but it’s starting to stink to high heaven. Either they broke up a long time before they explained in their joint statement, or this whole conscious uncoupling and staying business partners explanation is total BS. Well, it seems to be the former…

A source recently told The Sun the longtime couple’s romance just sort of sputtered out on its own late last year — and Maisie was the one to draw the line:
“Maisie and Reuben were inseparable for years – they were partners and best friends. They moved out of London to live together but their romance struggled last year and she called time on things.”
They are still trying to be friends and collaborators — they created the Daisie app together and have been working closely for a long time on multiple other endeavors — but it’s been a rough go for the Game of Thrones alum. It seems despite the split being her choice, he did find someone else very soon thereafter — always tough! That source continued:
“It has been really hard for her and that’s made worse by the fact he has moved on so quickly. Reuben and Phoebe have clicked and are now a couple. It’s a massive shock for all of their friends and families.”
Now Maisie is going to attempt to move on as well. The 25-year-old has entered the scary world of online dating to see what’s out there. A new source spilled to The Sun on Sunday that she’s on the celebrity dating app Raya:
“Maisie’s pals have got her on Raya in the last few days as she feels like she wants to throw herself into the dating game. She has a load of photos on there and talks in her profile about fitness being important to her, so she could find a sporty man.”
Inneresting. Sounds like she’s got some good friends encouraging her to get back on the horse! But don’t expect her to get attached as quickly as her ex. The insider adds:
“Right now she just wants some fun and to take things slow, though. She doesn’t feel the need to race into another relationship. But if it happens, it happens.”
Well, we wish nothing but the best for her. As one of the coolest people on the planet, she’s certainly a pretty damn eligible bachelorette.
What do YOU think of this whole breakup situation? Did Reuben move on too quickly? Or is he well within his rights as the dumpee? Maybe both??
