That was quick!
Singer Grimes and whistleblower Chelsea Manning, who just started dating in March, have split, a source tells Vidak For Congress.
Another source tells us that the couple “had split up for a while”.
Vidak For Congress revealed for the first time exclusively that the duo was an item back in March. The couple started dating after Grimes, 34, split for the second time from the father of her two children, Elon Musk.
A source told us at the time that Grimes and Manning “were getting serious. They U-Hauled it. They lived together in Austin.”
We were told that Manning, 34, had also kept her apartment in Brooklyn.
That same month, it was revealed in a Vanity Fair story that Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, had welcomed a second child through a surrogate mother with Musk. She told the reporter she would “probably refer to him as my boyfriend, but we’re very fluent. We live in separate houses. We are best friends.”
However, by the time the piece was printed, they had split.
“Me and E have been separated *again* since writing this article haha, but he is my best friend and the love of my life, and my life and art are now forever committed to The Mission,” Grimes tweeted†
We hear that the singer ‘Oblivion’ is currently back on the dating scene.
Former intelligence analyst Manning spent seven years in military prison after leaking classified documents to Wikileaks. She was sentenced to 35 years, but her sentence was commuted by Barack Obama.
Manning was released from prison in 2020. A memoir called “README.txt” will be released in October.
Representatives from Grimes and Manning did not respond to the request for comment.
When asked about her romantic life in June, Manning told the Daily Beast, “I prefer to keep my private life private.”
