Lauren Jauregui and The Vamps' Brad Simpson have been rumored to be dating since last November, but Fifth Harmony has finally confirmed their relationship — and their recent split. In an interview with Billboard magazine, they acknowledged that Brauren was totally a thing, and that they dated for eight months before breaking up in December.
When we talked to Brad at the end of November, he seemed totally happy in his relationship, even joking about his preferred ship name. Of course, they were very private about their love lives, and she never fessed up to the rumors, always saying they were just "really good friends."
Since they were both so secretive about their relationship, we shouldn't have been too surprised that they broke up and keep it all under wraps! But we kind of assumed things were tense between them when 5H and The Vamps got into a serious Twitter argument after James McVey tried to deflect attention away from the topic of Brauren. (He ended up making a rude statement instead.)
We're also just shocked that they dated for eight months! We always assumed that they met while on tour with Austin Mahone and Shawn Mendes, but if they've been dating for that long, maybe they met before then? The tour kicked off July 25, 2014.
Are you surprised that Brad and Lauren dated for eight months? Are you heartbroken that they're done for good?
