Jennifer Lawrence is “battling” with Kristen Stewart for Nicholas Hoult, a new report claims.
Lawrence, 24, just split with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, 37.
“They really like each other, but it’s just so complicated with so much going on,” a source told Us Weekly, noting that their relationship has been “rocky” due to their “insane” schedules.
“Jen got tired of watching Chris play happy families with [ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow] and was annoyed that he was trying to keep her hidden away,” a source told the Daily Mail.
And a new report from the notorious gossip website Celeb Dirty Laundry claims that Lawrence may now get back together with her longtime on-off boyfriend Nicholas Hoult, 24.
Lawrence and Hoult originally got together while filming X-Men: First Class in 2010. They last split in August 2014.
The gossip blog says that Lawrence and Hoult seem to get back together every time they film a new X-Men movie, which in this case would be X-Men: Apocalypse, for which filming is slated in 2015.
“However, will that even be a point of contention this time around, especially if Nicholas Hoult isn’t even single when that date comes around? All the evidence points to Nicholas Hoult and Kristen Stewart getting closer and starting to date, even if they haven’t made things official yet,” it said.
“Now, if Jennifer Lawrence wants him back [and let’s face it, she probably does], that means she’ll have to fight Kristen Stewart to get him back. And that leaves Nicholas Hoult in the unenviable [or enviable, depending your point of view] position of choosing between two of Hollyweird’s hottest actresses.”
Note that there doesn’t seem to be any proof that Lawrence is in fact “battling” Stewart, or that Hoult is having trouble deciding between the two.
Stewart and Hoult, who co-star in the upcoming film Equals, haven’t been confirmed together but the rumors have been flying.
Hollywood Life said that the pair “really bonded with each other” both on and off the set, with a source saying that they’re “inseparable.”
“They are constantly hanging out together when they aren’t on set. They’ve really bonded with each other and are like best friends now. It wouldn’t surprise any if us if it turns into something more serious, something romantic,” the source said.
“When Kristen is on location for long periods of time, she usually has a good friend come stay with her but not this time cause she has Nick. They love playing practical jokes on the cast and crew, playing pool, just exploring and hanging out.”
But sources told Hollywood Gossip that the pair have a simple “friends with benefits” arrangement.
“Kristen absolutely adores Nick. Is she in love with him? No, not at all. She’s in love with her independence right now and the peace that comes with not dating anyone seriously,” said one source.
“She promised herself she would not jump right into a serious relationship after Rob [Pattinson]. He was the love of her life.”
