Actor Rami Malek and his longtime partner Lucy Boynton have broken up. Rami Malek portrays rock hero Freddie Mercury in the movie “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
On the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ set, the two actors got to know one another. According to Mirror.co.uk, Lucy portrayed Mary Austin, Freddie’s girlfriend, in the movie.
For his part in the movie, Rami later won an Oscar. The Sun was informed by insiders that the pair split up early this year after gradually growing apart. The couple’s most recent shot together was taken in February of this year.
The Sun quoted a source as saying: “Rami and Lucy broke up early this year quietly. Despite spending a lot of time together, they had become distant. Both of them are going forward in their lives and are working hard.
Rami is allegedly using his friends’ company, especially Emma Corrin of The Crown, as a source of emotional support ever since the breakup. In July, the two were seen together during a Bruce Springsteen performance in Hyde Park.
According to the insider, “He invited Emma to join him last month to see Bruce at BST and they had a lovely night. Rami is living it up and having a good time. Rami has spent the summer having fun while surrounding himself with his friends, they said. When she attends Wimbledon without Rami, Lucy seems to be relishing her newfound independence.
The two seemed to be completely smitten with one another and were open about their love and emotions. “Lucy Boynton, you are the heart of this film, you are beyond immensely talented, and you have captured my heart,” Rami remarked in his acceptance speech as he won the Oscar for Best Actor in “Bohemian Rhapsody,” while the blonde watched proudly from the audience.
Rami most recently portrayed David Hill, a nuclear scientist who assisted in developing the atomic bomb during World War Two, in the film Oppenheimer. Alongside Daniel Craig, he played the lead villain Lyutsifer Safin in the most recent “James Bond” movie, “No Time to Die.”
