American singer Halsey and her boyfriend Alev Aydin have split after more than three years of dating, according to reports from US Weekly and Billboard.
The couple’s decision to break up was “amicable,” according to sources and they are committed to healthily co-parenting their one-year-old son Ender Ridley.
In documents obtained by Billboard, the 28-year-old “Without Me” singer filed a petition earlier this month to request primary physical custody of the couple’s child.
In the documents, Halsey is asking to have joint legal custody of the child with Aydin, and the writer/producer to be granted visitation rights.
Sources explained that the filing was simply a “formality” to allow Halsey to freely travel with their son as a touring artist.
Halsey surprised fans in early 2021 when they revealed that she was pregnant, tagging Aydin in the post, also confirming their romance.
“Alev and I have been really good friends for four years. And when the stars aligned, our relationship became romantic and it was pretty evident that he and I were both like, ‘Oh, my gosh! You’re the person I’m supposed to start a family with,” the singer previously told Allure.
“Nobody knew I was dating someone. As if people were entitled to an update, like, ‘I’ve met someone, we’re going on dates, it’s getting serious, they’ve moved in, we’re planning a child, we are having a baby, we had a baby, this is the gender….’”
Halsey welcomed her first child with the screenwriter and film producer in July 2021.
