Lewis Capaldi will be able to write about fresh heartache as his romance with student girlfriend Catherine Halliday is all over.
The 23-year-old Scottish singer had been dating the 21-year-old student – who is said to be the daughter of a millionaire architect – for seven months but the romance was unable to survive through lockdown.
Lewis and Catherine decided to call quits on their relationship, however, after realising now is not the time to settle down.
The couple had met after being introduced by mutual friends at the start of the year and were spotted out on a date at a pizzeria in his hometown of West Lothian before lockdown began in March.
The pair are believed to have kept in touch throughout lockdown – although they isolated apart as they stayed with their respective families.
But now the relationship is all over, with a source telling The Sun on Sunday: “Lewis has no hard feelings towards Catherine and they’re still amicable but they decided it was best to call it a day.
“He’s at the beginning of his career, with a lot of opportunity at his fingertips, so it’s not the right time to settle down.
“He wishes Catherine all the best and has fond memories of their dates together.”
It sounds as though Lewis is wasting no time looking for a new romance, however, as The Sun goes on to claim he has already signed up to celebrity dating app, Raya.
Lewis is said to be working on his new album – a follow up to his 2019 record Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent.
And news of his love split could be a shock to fans, as it had been reported he had penned a track in tribute to Catherine on his record.
A source said earlier this year: “He’s smitten with Catherine and although it’s early days she has a nod on one of the tracks he has written.
“Lewis mentions her heir and it’s really quite special. She’s made him realise how to be happy again.”
The star may have changed his tune now in light of the split.
