Us Weekly: Dianna Agron is “terrified” of Alex Pettyfer


I Am Number Four opened in wide release last Friday. On Sunday, Us Weekly announced that the two stars of the film, British actor Alex Pettyfer and Glee starlet Dianna Agron, had split up days before. Then, the next day, some bizarre story came out about Dianna breaking up with Alex because she thought a photo shoot he did with Tyler Shields was too racy… even though the photo shoot was done before Alex and Dianna even got together. I don’t know… I didn’t write about it because I thought it was a weird, nonsensical story, and that Dianna and Alex probably broke up for other reasons. Now Us Weekly has a story about those other reasons – apparently, Alex is kind of psycho.

Glee’s Dianna Agron didn’t exactly sing a wistful ballad following her split from actor Alex Pettyfer after nearly a year together.

Since moving out of the L.A. home she and the I Am Number Four star shared about two weeks ago, Agron, 24, “is staying at a hotel under an alias” a source reveals in the new Us Weekly, out Wednesday.

Why the secrecy? Pettyfer, 20, has been “a psycho loose cannon” in the aftermath of the split, another insider says.

On Feb. 18, according to an eyewitness, he got into a heated confrontation at a West Hollywood club with actor Sebastian Stan — furiously accusing the Black Swan star of hooking up with Agron.

“Dianna is terrified of [Alex],” a pal explains, adding that he “absolutely lost it” and threatened Agron during a vicious phone chat. (Pettyfer’s rep tells Us he made no threats.)

Hmm… from what little I know of Alex, he seems like an unprofessional, narcissistic douche, and while I take even random, tabloid-y accounts of abuse and mental illness seriously, I do wonder if Us Weekly is being a little unfair to Alex. If what Us Weekly claims is true, then really what did he do? He yelled at his ex-girlfriend over the phone, and then he had a “heated confrontation” with the dude Alex thought was his ex’s jumpoff. I’m not excusing him – he does sound like he has some anger management issues, and he would benefit greatly by attempting some maturity. I’m just saying it’s not Mel Gibson territory quite yet, is it? And the kid is young – he’s 20 years old.

But if Dianna is truly worried, then it sounds like she’s taking the proper steps. Maybe a restraining order? Maybe change up her routine, and always go places with a buddy for a little while. I would be interested in knowing how often Alex is calling her or trying to speak to her.

    That sketchy beard/pedostasche tells me all I need to know about that guy. Ick!

  2. Gia says:

    This relationship was a PR showmance. There are several BI’s about them.
    He looks way older than 20

  3. brin says:

    Just what Hollywood needs, a psycho douche!

  4. I call bs on this story! Let’s see what Dianna has to say about this. He is HOT!!

  5. Alliah says:

    He’s a hot psycho.

  6. Genevieve says:

    She seems innocent in these photos while he seems possessive and arrogant…I’m inclined to believe the scary douchehole story

  7. Rita says:

    I heard Colin firth was the same way in his youth. Immature young bucks usually settle down after the rut.

  8. devilgirl says:

    Just because someone may be hot ( I don’t think he is remotely hot) does not mean they are not psycho.

  9. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    He’s extremely young, not anywhere near able to have a non-drama relationship. Give him a few years, he’ll be ok.

    And he is hot.

  10. PrettyTarheel says:

    His ears bother me. Like he’s about to catch a breeze and pull a Dumbo. And from everything that’s been out there, it sounds like he’s an incredible douche and probably not above talking smack to/about his ex.

  11. carrie says:

    @gia: i totally agree with you:it was on

  12. tapioca says:

    Come on guys, where’s your cynicism?! They’ve got a movie out and it came a lowly 3rd at the BO over the weekend – why not try creating a little tabloid drama to boost numbers! If everyone I’d ever playfully threatened on the phone took out a TRO on me, I’d have to walk around in a 100ft hula-hoop…

  13. Elfie says:

    It was a showmance. It’s a solve BV

  14. reporter says:

    He looks like a meth head

  15. beth says:

    he’s only 20 – give him a break.

  16. e says:

    Not everyone acts maturely during a breakup. I will cut him a break for now.

  17. normades says:

    I am number 4 – I am number 3 at the box office = 1 quick breakup

  18. Gia says:

    From the solved BI:

    “Their publicists were hoping for a Twilight kind of effect, where fans would swoon over the couple like the second coming of Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, and the film would do well as a result. Didn’t happen, so everyone agreed to move on”

    So HW uses one showmance as an example to create another one. Neither is or was convincing.

  19. Linda says:

    he looks gay to me

  20. Caitlin says:

    He’s really beat looking for 20…I call BS.

  21. clorismetchum says:

    something in this room is moist, and it ain’t a cake…

  22. Kim says:

    How scary for her if this is true! Lets see what she publicly says if anything before we assume he is psycho though.

  23. Mika says:

    Dianna Agron needs to start dressing like a human and not a doll. In the photo of her in white, she looks like Jonbenet Ramsey, it’s creeping me out.

  24. jinni says:

    I wonder why the rep only denied that he was making thearts towards her, but didn’t deny that he got into a fight with that Stan guy? Sounds like there might be some truth to his anger problems.

    Twenty years old isn’t that young; and why does it have to get to Mel Gibson level for people to start getting concerned?

    This should be nipped in the bud now because if he’s this insufferable now can you imagine how f-ed up he’ll be if he makes it big in Hollywood.

  25. Cherry Rose says:

    Dianna Argon is pretty, but god is she stupid. She was on Jay Leno and basically revealed how big of a moron she is. “I don’t know much about football, but I know there’s these two goal posts.” WTF woman!?!

    And that guy is just creepy looking. And just because you find someone attractive, doesn’t mean they’re not abusive and have anger management problems.

  26. kja says:

    Cherry that was probably Dianna joking and the joke fell a little flat. From her blog she comes across as a smart and thoughtful girl.

  27. I am extremely impressed together with your writing talents and also with the format on your weblog. Is that this a paid theme or did you customize it your self? Either way stay up the excellent high quality writing, it is uncommon to peer a nice weblog like this one these days..
