Keira Knightley and her boyfriend Rupert Friend have split up after 5 years together. The couple had been hot and heavy with each other since meeting on the set of ‘Pride and Prejudice’ in 2005. Keira’s father Will Knightley confirmed the split with The Sun.
“Yes, they have broken up. But that’s the way things go, unfortunately. I’ve spoken to her recently. The only option is to get on with things. They were together for quite a long time and it is always hard breaking up. She’s focused on her work.”
A friend of Rupert said “Rupert hates the idea of being followed or photographed. Keira partially had to accept it because of her rising profile. It affected the harmony in the relationship. The pressure on such private people took its toll and both decided they should go their separate ways. They will remain life-long friends.”
Oh yeah, Keira is back on the single meat market. It’s time for her to go out with her girlfriends, get smashed, and run naked through the streets of London. I know that’s a bit far-fetched, but at least we can all hope and dream for it.
