After mere months, NFL quarterback Tim Tebow, 25, and actress Camilla Belle, 26, have allegedly broken up. In November, the two made headlines after it was reported that they began dating after meeting earlier in the year at a gala at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Despite initial claims that the two had been romantically linked since May 2012, Us Magazine, a tabloid, claims that Tebow and Belle were only together for about two months before their split. An anonymous source told the outlet that the relationship “just didn’t work out.”
As TheBlaze originally reported, speculation about the couple’s romance was rampant in late October and early November, after they were spotted in Jacksonville, Florida. Tebow and Belle were said to be affectionate and “very together” at the time.
According to ABC News, Belle has appeared in numerous feature films, including “Push” and “When a Stranger Calls.” From 2008 until 2009, she dated musician Joe Jonas, was on People Magazine’s “Most Beautiful People in the World List” in 2011 and, much like Tebow, she has been active in charity work.
If the break-up story is true, this news comes at a poor time for Tebow, who also had a major professional setback this week. New York Jets coach Rex Ryan bypassed him as starting quarterback and, instead, chose Greg McElroy to replace Mark Sanchez.
Tebow responded to Ryan’s decision, saying that he is “a little disappointed” and trying to handle the scenario as best he can. When asked if he felt passed over by the Jets coach, he was candid.
”All you can ask for and all you want is a chance,” he responded. ”A chance to go out there and play the game you love, and help this team win football games. That’s all I wanted.”
