Charlie Heaton, star of “Stranger Things,” was spotted with a mysterious blonde at a London music festival, amid breakup rumors with long-term girlfriend Natalia Dyer.
With the off-screen couple recently fueling breakup rumors, Charlie Heaton was photographed with a mystery blonde girl while watching Gorillaz perform in Victoria Park, according to the Daily Mail. The mystery girl’s arms were wrapped around the actor in the photos, and the two appeared to be having a good time.
According to The Daily Mail:
“The star giggled as the pretty lady threw her arm around his neck and got close to his face.”
Aside from the contentious photos taken at the music festival, no other details indicate that Charlie and Natalia have officially broken up. Representatives from both parties have declined to comment on the images or the rumors of a breakup.
Charlie Heaton and Natalia Dyer first met on the set of Netflix’s “Stranger Things” in 2015 as co-stars. Jonathan Byers and Nancy Wheelers were entangled in a love triangle before finally becoming a couple at the end of the second season.
During the first audition, “Stranger Things” co-creator Matt Duffer revealed in an interview that they had the pair do a chemistry read, and he concluded that “sparks were flying” from their dynamic.
Perhaps fans will never truly know what is going on in their relationship because the couple has always kept things low-key.
Natalia Dyer spoke briefly about her relationship with Charlie in a May interview with Cosmopolitan, saying she never understood the concept of going “red-carpet official.” The actress also stated that because the two began as co-stars, she believes there should not be too much pressure on dating.
“Some people are very good about being open and sharing, and other people feel a little more comfortable holding some things for themselves.”
Heaton and Dyer’s relationship dates all the way back to 2016. Despite the controversy surrounding Heaton’s photos with the mystery blonde, Natalia’s most recent update on their relationship in a May 2022 interview with Cosmopolitan suggests they are still going strong.
