Taylor Lautner's film, "Abduction," may have opened this weekend, but the story that has everyone buzzing is his breakup with his co-star Lily Collins.
Their relationship had started going downhill when Lily went to Canada to film "Brothers' Grimm: Snow White." Taylor apparently wasn't into the distance and their conflicting work schedules.
Given the timing of this news, fans are likely wondering if this was just another showmance/publicity stunt. Here's a look at other recent co-star showmances that fizzled out.
Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift
In December, "Taylor Squared" ended their relationship after three months of dating. They had met on the set of "Valentine's Day." The couple fizzled out because he seemed to be more into her than she was into him.
Alex Pettyfer and Dianna Agron
This couple seemed to be quite serious, even dodging engagement rumors at one point. Yet the "I Am Number Four" lovebird called it quits during their movie's opening weekend. The timing of their breakup led viewers to wonder if their relationship had been staged in order to promote the film.
Bradley Cooper and Renee Zellweger
In September, while promoting their upcoming film, "Case 39," Cooper was gushing to the press about Zellweger. And she even skipped the Golden Globes to be with him when his father died. Yet this couple had fizzled out around Marc.
Joe Jonas and Demi Lovato
Lovato was heartbroken enough over her breakup with Jonas, but it must have been a slap in the face to learn that her "Camp Rock 2" co-star had dated her "just for show" in order to promote the movie.
Yet it all seems to be water under the bridge. The two were spotted having a friendly encounter at the 2011 MTV VMAs.
