Lena Dunham and Jack Antonoff have split after 5 years of being together.

“Jack and Lena were growing apart and it just made sense for them to end their relationship where it was,” a source told E! News. “It was mutual.”

While everyone else is going to drill into Lena’s ideas of relationships, and why she will “always wear Jack’s ring,” according to PageSix, I have to wonder when Jack Antonoff will start leaning towards finally dating Lorde.

Now, before you get this all wrong, I am not insinuating that Lorde is a homewrecker, or that this is the reason Lena and Jack broke up, but you have to admit, when you visibly can see chemistry with two people, it’s hard to ignore.

When talking about ‘Melodrama,’ Jack never calls Lorde by her stage name, he always calls her “Ella,” which is her real name. Now, we could make the case that their friendship is so tight-knit that he doesn’t feel the need to call her by her stage name, and the fact that Taylor Swift also references her as “Ella,” but that seems like a super-personal thing that only special people get to do.


The moments that we see with Jack and Lorde together seem to be the most we’ve ever seen Lorde smile. During her days of the album ‘Heroine,’ we rarely saw a smile, and that it was part of her character. Even with her lyrics, she always leaned more toward the macabre and saying things like “I’ll be the beauty queen in tears.”

Lorde even described Jack as her “Work Husband” after he worked closely with her on her album ‘Melodrama’ and though she mentions Lena, she lights up talking about Jack:

Lorde chats about bonding with Seth over being uncool at a Kanye West fashion show and feeling pressure to make sure the follow-up to her smash debut album doesn't suck.
