It’s a sad day for beards! Emma Roberts, entitled princess and niece of Julia, has broken up with Chord Overstreet, the boy from Glee. Yes, they were dating. I actually knew that, because as soon as they got together, they did a “photo shoot” together at Disneyland or something, and it was really clear that this was just a professional “relationship” – like Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens or something. Emma really tried to make this thing with Chord (I can’t with that name) happen, but… it just never “took”.
Not-so-gleeful news. Chord Overstreet and Emma Roberts have split after 9 months together, two sources confirm to Us Weekly.
(JustJared was first to break the news late Monday that the Glee actor, 22, and Scream 4 actress, 20, had parted ways.)
The cute couple were first caught making out last April at the A|X Armani Exchange and 944 Magazine carnival in Indio, Calif., and finally went public in July with a stroll through London.
Roberts — actress Julia Roberts’ niece — once dated Hollywood bad boy Alex Pettyfer. Overstreet’s exes include Taylor Swift (he was her brief rebound last winter following her split from Jake Gylllenhaal) and Glee costar Naya Rivera.
What went wrong? “They’re both young kids, they had crushes on each other but the relationship ran its course,” one source explains to Us. “She isn’t and wasn’t looking for a serious thing.” Roberts, who partied solo in Sundance, is “back to having fun now.”
“He’s so nice and was such a good boyfriend,” another insider says of Overstreet. “He was always so sweet.”

Emma has been getting more press than usual lately – she went to Sarah Lawrence for a whole semester (not really), and then she “deferred” (dropped out) because college is SO HARD and she wanted to pap herself in LA. I’m surprised the college thing wasn’t used as an excuse here – “Emma was pursuing her education, and the relationship suffered” etc. Someone needs a better publicist.
Incidentally, just hours before the breakup was announced, Us Weekly had this story:
Even though Glee lost out to Modern Family for Best Comedy Series Ensemble at Sunday’s SAG Awards, the evening still proved to be a success for Chord Overstreet, who managed to meet his favorite esteemed actor!
The 22-year-old Glee star’s big moment came after the SAG Awards had wrapped inside Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium, at one of the evening’s after parties.
“Chord Overstreet met Brad Pitt, his idol, and was ecstatic about it!” a source from inside the event tells Us Weekly. “People literally stopped in their tracks as Brad and [Angelina Jolie] walked by — you could overhear other celebrities talking about how beautiful and handsome they were.”

So Chord dumped his girlfriend shortly after he met Brad Pitt. That’s what I’m getting from this story. Take that as you will.
