THE BREAK-UP

Marc Jacobs And Porn Star Boyfriend Harry Louis Call It Quits

louis-jacobs-breakupYou know, in today’s fast-paced, #hashtagged, filtered, 140 characters or less kind of world, a high-profile break-up just isn’t complete without a social media component. Just look at Harry Louis, who took to Instagram over the weekend to “announce” his break-up from his fashion designer boyfriend, Marc Jacobs.

If there’s anything called class it’s a photo of you and your ex that looks like someone threw a brick at it from a slowly moving Dodge Pacer. Louis, a Brazilian model/porn star, added this public statement to his subtle gesture:

So I would like to be the first one to share with you all the news… Me and Marc have decided not carry on with our relationship as boyfriends… The distance and lack of time because of work schedules aren’t really something realistic, and he’s such a beautiful and amazing person, that I think he deserve a bf who will stay at least in one of the cities that he leaves in… Also, I need that too… We love each other very much, and that it was a decision from both!!!! Every special minute we’ve spent together will be treasured, and a new chapter of our both lives has started… Both of us focusing in work, and make it work!!!! So, for those who were always supportive of us, please don’t be sad, live goes on, to all of us… And for those who were praying that this day were coming, there you have… Marc Jacobs and Harry Louis aren’t officially a couple anymore!!!!

Now, this isn’t the first time the two have flown — private — into Splitsville, though a speedo-clad beach photo of them canoodling often means they’re back together. But is this the real deal? As for Jacobs, he’s going through a lot of changes, having recently left his position at Louis Vuitton, where he has been holding court for the past 16 years. So maybe Marc is just doing a little belated spring cleaning.
