Tim Tebow & Camilla Belle have broken up: predictable, hilarious, or both?

Camilla Belle

If I’d have bet on this relationship, I’d certainly be out a few dollars. Camilla Belle and Tim Tebow have called it quits! The two young quasi-lovers had been dating since this past summer when they were spotted grabbing kisses and holding hands, and it was apparently very serious stuff. Tim had already introduced Camilla to his parents, and it was widely reported that he believed (rightfully or wrongfully) that Camilla was a virgin and “the woman of his dreams,” which would seem quite appropriate for a young NFL star who is intent on saving himself for marriage.

Now Camilla and Tim have reportedly and sadly broken up, so we are free to hypothesize over the reason that Tim dumped Camilla. He totally dumped her, right? Let’s just go with that assumption. Now, was Camilla trying to get Tim into bed, and was it like that silly scene between the two virgins of Twilight: Eclipse where Bella is trying to get Edward into the tacky, golden bed, and he’s all, “But all I have left is my virtue!” Or … is it a case of Tim finding out from mysterious sources that Camilla isn’t exactly as virtuous as she seems?

Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow will have to start praying for a new lady.

After less than two months of dating, the New York Jets quarterback and actress Camilla Belle have called it quits, a source tells Us Weekly exclusively.

Explains the source of Tebow, 25, and Belle, 26: “It just didn’t work out.”

Tebow and the Push actress were first spotted bowling with pals at Latitude 30 in Jacksonville, Florida on Oct. 30. “They were grabbing kisses and holding hands . . . They were having a great time together,” a witness said at the time of the Hollywood beauty and Tebow, a devout Christian who has said he plans to remain a virgin until marriage.

Before Belle, Tebow had been falsely linked to Glee’s Dianna Agron and Taylor Swift. Speaking of Swift, 22, Belle dated the singer’s ex, Joe Jonas, from 2008 to 2009.

You know, I really thought Camilla was going to pull this one off. Theoretically speaking, she had the perfect resumé — dating Joe Jonas of the mandatory purity ring — to end up with Tim Tebow. Of course, her prospective success could only be predicated upon the validity of said purity ring and/or the likelihood of Tim Tebow believing that Camilla was an actual virgin when he started to date her. Maybe Tim Tebow is actually a lot smarter than most of us would give him credit for being. Or maybe not.

    They’d make some fantastic-looking babies. Just saying.

  2. gilly says:

    She looks like Elizabeth Hurley in these pictures.

    As I loathe Tim Tebow, I only hope this further sets him back. Sorry Jets fans, he’s yours to deal with.

  3. marie says:

    call me cynical but.. I thought she got with him to up her star power (let’s face it Tebow was everywhere for a while) and found out his career is going nowhere fast and they broke up. I mean the 3rd string QB got the starting job over him. I think he would have a great career if he would swallow his pride and switch his position-he might be a fantastic tightend..

    and I know it’s not a popular position but I think he’s a good looking kid..

  4. Elceibeno says:

    How did he find out she wasn’t a virgin? Fornication is a sin also Tim.

  5. Hubbahun says:

    She’s an odd looking woman – not ugly-odd, just like she’s almost beautiful then something goes wrong. Perhaps it’s the loyalty to the blue eyeshadow I don’t know. She also has a smoker’s mouth wrinkles. He’s fine to look at but yes, less than a full load upstairs.

    “Maybe Tim Tebow is actually a lot smarter than most of us would give him credit for being. Or maybe not.”
    I’ll go with ‘maybe not’. I saw an interview of his whilst I was stuck in JFK during a layover and … well, the guy’s certainly got a great body but he’s also got a serious case of derp face.
    And derp brain.
    Hmm. ‘The Life of Derp’. TV series?

  7. RN says:

    Personally, I’d find a mid-20s virgin to be a liability, not an asset.

  8. keats says:

    I have it on good authority that tebow is not a virgin in any sense of the word. And by good authority I mean my friend has a friend who went to Florida at the same time as him.

  9. Talie says:

    He could’ve been married by now if he really wanted to, it would not have been hard for his family to hook him up with someone from his church who was like a kindergarten teacher for something else very benign. He obviously wants a star because he wants to be talked about.

  10. bonnie says:

    what about lola jones for him? she is an olympic athlete and a virgin. They both love fitness and competition and similar moral virtue? i think it would be a better match than a hollywood social climber. at least him an lola could have something to talk about

  11. PinkG says:

    How does one “grab” a kiss?

  12. Sweet Dee says:

    1. Even though they’re virgins, are they allowed to do…you know, “stuff”…?

    2. Her dress appears to have fancified pretzels on it. Making me hungry. Also reminding me of a Seinfeld episode.

    3. He is assuredly not smarter than we thought. He’s not smarter than anything.

    4. I’m extremely glad it’s unlikely I’ll ever have to have sex with a virgin again.

  13. LisaMarie says:

    Call me a jaded old bitch, but I don’t believe for a second he’s a virgin.

    Also, that is one ugly frankendress in the first pic. There’s at least 3, maybe 4, dresses going on there.

  14. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I also don’t think he’a virgin but if he is, I’m not gonna criticize him for it ya know? Whatever works for ya.

    I guess I’m alone here but I think this girl is REALLY pretty. No idea who she is but she’s gorgeous (when she doesn’t use blue eyeshadow).

    • The Original Genevieve says:

      @ OKitt:

      No, you are definitely NOT alone. I have always thought Camilla Belle was absolutely gorgeous, with incredible fashion sense, as well.

      Now, a VIRGIN? Ehhh…maybe not. ;)

      • Sweet Dee says:

        I agree with you both, she’s gorge. Virgins? The both of them? I don’t buy it but it’s not personal; I rarely believe that schtick.

        I’m in CO so he was briefly a big deal in my general vicinity and I have to say I think the hype around him was that he was the only football player who didn’t try to be a badass all the time, nothing more (like talent). I’m surprised he’s still a thing.

        Her pretzel dress is making me thirsty, blue eyelids have to go. But DAMN, that face. I think she’s beautiful, I’m going to have to google what she actually does lol.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        GEN! Yay & cyberhugs :)

        Exactly, Sweet Dee. Not sure I believe the virgin thing and I think as others have said he’d be better in another position besides QB but I have to hand it to the guy-he’s not a complete douchebag. That’s an accomplishment in and of itself when we’re talking about athletes.

        And I’m glad to see others think Camilla Bell is gorgeous as well. I know beauty is subjective but I was starting to feel like I may be crazy :)

        And I also want pretzels now….

      • The Original Genevieve says:


        Cyberhugs back atcha, sweetie!! I may be bed-bound w/ a disintegrating spine, but I still reserve my right to be a snarky b*tch ;) Pray that the Gods of Cigna insurance and artificial discs will come through for me…maybe Santa will bring as a present? All I know is, it is PISSING me off not to be able to wear my gorgeous heels right now!

        Camilla first caught my attention when she was dating one of the Jonas boys (they live in my neighborhood in TX). She started appearing in People StyleWatch and every other damned fashion mag, ALWAYS dressed to kill. Girl’s got beauty and style, for sure. However, I SRSLY doubt she still has a hymen. :p

    • NerdMomma says:

      No, I am with you- I think she is honestly one of the most beautiful women on earth. I watched some silly movie with Wilmer Valderama in it just for her. To me, she and Catherine Zeta-Jones are the height of beauty, and it’s a shame neither ever get really good roles. I just love looking at them.

      Related: costarring with Wilmer Valderama makes it a pretty sure bet that she is not a virgin.

    A good read – The Purity Myth by Jessica Valenti.

  16. Tiffany says:

    I will always have Belle envy for she got to work with Daniel Day Lewis. Holding hands with Derphead, eh. I am also on the Tebow is not a virgin train. Just no.

  17. erika says:

    just …..shutup about your personal sex life/lack thereof. I just really feel that virginity info is really private, it’s a private thing.

    WHY WHY WHY does the public feel the need to pressure stars into submitting this info?

    and Tebow? wtf? if you’re a virgin, and that means sooOOOoO much to you, why not keep it sacred and private? between you, god and family instead of the american public/strangers who get creeped out thinking about WHEN you WILL loose your virginity and how it will all go and the longer you wait and….arghghghhh

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Ehhhh..I agree with you. Sort of.

      I think that if it’s true that he’s a virgin, that maybe he was public about it so that virgins wouldn’t feel ashamed-trying to de-stigmatize it etc etc.

      Am I giving him too much credit? Maybe. But I know when I was a virgin (5 million years go) I felt like a bit of a freak of nature.

  18. andrea says:

    Camilla’s ratio of “virgins” to not quite so virtuous men is lopsided. I remember she even had a brief fling with Fernando Verdasco. So this thing with Tebow was never going to last. I think she tries to maintain a sweet, girly image, but her dating resume contradicts that.

  19. megan says:

    He’s evangelical, she’s Catholic (I think) – maybe just religious/philosophical differences. I know a lot of evangelicals think catholicism is a “false” religion.

  20. Starlight says:

    What do you expect. She is a movie star. She needs to be shown around not hidden.

  21. rose says:

    I dont know why people laugh at him being a virgin. poor dude must be suffering enough lol

  22. Jazmin says:

    Please, get off the religion/virginity wagon.
    They broke up for the obvious reasons.
    And like they said, it didn’t work out.

    His job situation is uncertain and he needed to concentrate on that. This guy is not just a “flash in the pan” type athlete, his life has been planned very carefully since birth and he decided very early on he wanted to pursue a football career, become a role model, have a platform for his evangelical beliefs and missions, and do the relationship/marriage thing when all of the above is settled.
    Now tell me how does Camilla fit into this equation? She doesn’t. At least not now.

    Mark Sanchez & Eva Longoria broke up for similar reasons, she even said he was horrible & moody to be around because his career was not going well.
    Now Tebow does not go around “pimping” or talking about his virginity. It was a naive response (on his part) to a very personal question he was asked 4 years ago by a Media reporter when he was a Florida quarterback and already making headlines. The Media latched onto this and his religion, and 4 years later, never let go. So here we are still speculating about this guy. I think his fame has hurt him more than helped. And Tebowmania is without question, hurting his career. I feel badly for him. A lot of people are down on him because he is a good christian who walks the talk, and feel disgusted with themselves when they look in the mirror and see the difference.
    He needs to get away from the Jets organization ASAP! They have humiliated him and discriminated against him beyond belief… All because he is a christian young man trapped in a den of jealous misfits, idiotic thugs, with arrogant gangster like coaches intent on destroying his career.

  23. RobN says:

    Why would this be hysterical? He’s innocuous enough, she’s a nobody. It didn’t work out, so what? You don’t marry every person you date. I’m just not sure why anybody would find it funny. It’s more of an “Oh well” than anything else.

  24. Jazmin says:

    The crapstorm, as you put it had nothing to do with the commercial, and started waaaay before then… In high school, carried over when he became a UF Gator, started winning national championships, and his brother and a film student buddy began filming and documenting his life to later turn it into a movie for a school project.
    In that respect, he doesn’t know what normalcy is, (regarding media coverage) because he basically grew up with it. How is he going to stop it? He is a sweet polite southern kid who doesn’t like being rude and is sort of a pushover regarding his fans.
    He was the only college athlete that I witnessed being scuttled out after a football game with police escort, because the crowd was off-the charts.

    The commercial in question was about pro-life, pro-family topics, where his mother talks about not aborting him even though she was suffering a fetal infection and she might die if she carried to term. She prayed and waited leaving it up to God to save her life and to deliver this baby without aborting. Tim appears and thanks her for her courage and faith; otherwise he might not be here today.
    This commercial was his parents’ idea, who are evangelical missionaries, so Tim like a good son, who is also convicted to his beliefs, agreed to do.
    What’s wrong with that? Not PC enough? Maybe, that’s why it was quickly pulled from air time.
    By the way, who in their right mind would make a national commercial with his mother, saying: Hey, I’m (TT), I’m a virgin and saving myself for marriage!! More importantly, who would put this on TV in prime-time $$$$$$ during SuperBowl week?….Lol..Get real!
    And don’t even get me started on why he’s playing badly! If you followed football a little bit you would know why. I’m a Dolphins fan and always wished they had picked him instead…:(

    Sorry about the rambling or typos, but it’s the Mayan Calendar influence, I was bored and felt like typing something.

    buuuuugs. *why* is this girl famous, besides her eyebrows and dating famous dudes?

    Or maybe he’s gay. Like, really. Really.
