The Real Reason Regina King And Malcolm-Jamal Warner Split

0 Просмотры
Most celebrity relationships come and go in the blink of an eye. Case in point: Regina King and Malcolm-Jamal Warner, who only had a two-year run before ending their romance in March 2013. When they were still an item, they lived together with King's son from her previous marriage. The former child stars knew each other back in the '80s, when King starred on the sitcom 227 and Warner portrayed Theo Huxtable on The Cosby Show.

Although they had been friends for several decades, King and Warner didn't start dating until 2011. The next year, she told Parade that the romance had come about at just the right time. As she put it,

"I believe the universe has a plan, and we probably wouldn’t have been ready years ago. We both had to do whatever we had to do to be ready for each other now."

Although their relationship certainly made headlines, it was their breakup that really caused a commotion. So why did they call it quits?

According to Us Weekly, Warner called things off totally and completely out of the blue — and the move left her stunned. Right then and there, he allegedly asked King and her son to promptly move out of their shared home, too. A supposed insider told the magazine,

"She thought this would really last for good, they were so close as a family. [...] They knew each other forever and then out of nowhere he dumped her. She's still confused and hurt and doesn't know what happened."

As to why Warner ended things, the source only told the magazine that,

"[He] wasn't feeling it anymore."

He later opened up about the split to Sister 2 Sister magazine, saying that,

"All relationships have their share of obstacles, and you just try not to have yours plastered [everywhere]. I mean, you try not to date in the spotlight. [...] Unfortunately our breakup got more coverage than our being together, and that kind of sucked ‘cause we spent so much time trying to keep it out of the public eye."

Meanwhile, that same Us Weekly source claimed that

"[King is] still really disappointed that it ended and with how [Warner] did it."

And honestly, we can't blame her. Whatever happened, it sounds pretty bad!

Us Weekly caught up with King in January 2015, two years after Warner reportedly ended their relationship. King revealed to the publication that an ex once dumped her on Valentine's Day. Here's how she told the cringeworthy tale:

"Someone broke up with me on Valentine's. D--k! Yeah. I'm serious. Then he actually sent me flowers that said, 'I still love you' and I threw the flowers in the trash and he was upset that I threw them in the trash and I was like, 'F--k you.'"

King didn't name names, but she hinted that readers could probably guess exactly who she was talking about. She told the publication,

"They'll know. [...] I love flowers but he thought that was right. What an a--, right?"

That sounds like a seriously wretched way to end a relationship, doesn't it? Even though King seemingly blasted Warner in that Us Weekly interview, it sounds like he has no hard feelings. He even congratulated her when she won an Emmy for her performance in American Crime. Taking to Twitter, he wrote:

"Thank u 4 representing & affirming that integrity dignity & success CAN coexist!"

When he spoke to Sister 2 Sister magazine, Warner seemed to imply that he was at least on good terms with King's son Ian Alexander Jr., telling the publication,

"We're all very cool."

Judging by her remarks, King might have a different take on things. Of course, we highly doubt she's still dwelling on her former relationship with Warner these days… she's probably much too busy collecting award statues. On top of winning two Emmys and a slew of other awards over the years, her performance in If Beale Street Could Talk won her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2019. That means that, as of the making of this video, she's halfway to an EGOT. Who needs Valentine's Day, anyway? Watch the video to learn The Real Reason Regina King And Malcolm-Jamal Warner Split!
