It’s over. Rebel Wilson and boyfriend Jacob Busch broke up after just five months of dating. The former Pitch Perfect actress confirmed the pair’s split on February 2. “Lots on my mind … aghhhhhh …,” Rebel captioned her Instagram post, along with the hashtag “single girl headed to the Super Bowl.”
According to Page Six, the pair’s relationship “just run its course.” Prior to their split, Rebel and the brewery owner, who made things official in September 2020, were one of Hollywood’s cutest couples. In fact, the Australia native was constantly showing off their relationship on social media.
“We do a lot of exercising together,” Rebel captioned a selfie with Jacob in October 2020, along with a winking emoji. Clearly, Rebel was trying to be a little cheeky. However, she and her beau really do work out together … you know, outside of the bedroom. “Jacob and Rebel are both into fitness and getting into shape,” a source previously told Life & Style.
Of course, we weren’t entirely surprised to see Rebel settle down with someone who appreciates getting their sweat on. After all, the comedian began her weight loss journey in 2016 and has made amazing strides ever since.
While there’s no doubt the How to Be Single alum has never looked better, Rebel’s connection with Jacob was hardly skin deep. According to the insider, Jacob is “so funny” and “really fun” to be around. “He and Rebel go well together! They’ve really fallen for each other.”
Prior to Jacob, little is known about Rebel’s dating history. “There’s a few suitors out there. I’m doing this thing called ‘year of love,’ where I’m definitely putting myself out there. It’s kind of like I’m the Bachelorette, but nobody’s filming it right now,” she explained during a May 2019 appearance on the Kyle and Jackie O Show.
“Which I wish they would. I offered Channel Ten to do it, but I had a pretty high price tag,” Rebel joked. “I’ll tell you what, it’s interesting and it’s going well. I don’t think I’ve found ‘The One’ yet — the serious ‘one.’ But I am having a lot of fun.”
