Rebel Wilson's billionaire boyfriend Jacob Busch was 'blindsided' after she split with him through 'text message'
REBEL Wilson's billionaire boyfriend Jacob Busch was "blindsided" after she split with him through "text message."
Just a few months ago, fans were delighted that Rebel had found love but the two ended things this past month.
Sources close to the Anheuser-Busch heir revealed to Us Weekly that Jacob, 29, is still processing his break-up with Rebel, 40.
The source said: "They went to Aspen right before the holidays and had a blast.
"Then, he left for Florida to be with his family, and he invited her because he really wanted her to meet [them] but she never committed to doing that.
"They talked all throughout the holidays and had excellent communication, but then, all of a sudden, she got really quiet and broke up with him via text message about two or three weeks ago."
As expected, Jacob didn’t take the break-up well and is "really upset," according to the source: "It was very hurtful," but he has "no ill-will towards her."
The source further talked about how Jacob "has been crazy about her ever since 2019."
They explained: "They would get together on and off throughout the years. They maintained their friendship and then became boyfriend and girlfriend in late summer."
And as for his reaction when Rebel confirmed she was a single gal on social media, a second source claimed that it was hard for him to comprehend.
The second source said that Jacob is still looking for "full closure on why she decided to break up with him to begin with.
"He’s at a loss for words right now. He feels blindsided. He’s still taking it in. He really thought she was going to be his life partner."
The source continued: "He was trying to make amends since he received the text, and then today when he saw the post, that’s [when] he realized they were officially over."
Just a few days ago, Rebel confirmed she was single with a caption on her social media while flaunting her new figure in a denim dress.
She wrote: "Lots on my mind…aghhhhhh…#single-girl-heading-to-Super-Bowl!"
The break up follows Rebel's near 60-pound weight loss over the course of her so-called "health year" of 2020.
Rebel and Jacob first met when a mutual friend introduced them in 2019.
The couple made their official debut when they hit the red carpet at the 2020 Monte Carlo Gala for Planetary Health.
The Pitch Perfect star has stunned fans over the last year for her dedication to leading a healthier lifestyle.
She recently shared that she has officially reached her goal weight of 165lbs.
The celebrity spoke to E! News about her relationship in regards to her weight loss, explaining: "Some people on social media say, 'Oh, well you lost weight and then you got a hot boyfriend.' But, what I do want to say to those people is that I actually dated Jacob when I was at my heaviest as well.
"So, it's not like I suddenly lost weight, and then you're like, oh, you get a hot boyfriend—that's not how it works. This guy liked me at 100 kilos and now 75 kilos."
Rebel ensured her fans that her billionaire beau liked her for who she was, adding: "I just want to clear out that. There's something really comforting in that to me because you're like, oh, it wasn't necessarily of what my body type was. He really likes me for me.
"Our plans are just to keep going and everything is so fun and nice. We will see! We're talking about a few getaways, but I don't know exactly.
"He is such a sweetheart and I adore him. We will see what happens."
Prior to dating Jacob, Rebel recently revealed that she used to say yes to every person who asked her on a date.
“I did an experiment where I dated anyone who asked me out," she shared of her dating life in 2019.
"It was part of the rules of that year, not that I told people that was happening. I just had to give lots of people a chance and then I learnt lots about myself.”
When asked what she learned through the interesting experiment, she concluded: “Don’t shut yourself off to love."
“I had lots of really good friends but I never allowed myself to get into relationships until the last few years.
“Life is short and you really have to go for it.”
