Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills and actress Hailee Steinfeld were photographed out together amid reports that the NFL player had separated from his longtime girlfriend, Brittany Williams.
In images released by the New York Post, Allen, 27, donned a white shirt and dark blue trousers for a night out with Steinfeld, 26, in New York City on Thursday.
PEOPLE’s newest digital star, Hailee Steinfeld, met with the quarterback while dressed in light blue trousers and a cream-colored jacket.
Rumours of a separation arose when Williams, 25, unfollowed Allen on Instagram and deleted images of him from her account.
Williams, 25, and Allen, 25, have not officially addressed their rumoured separation, but the New York Post reports that Williams and a companion joked about “accepting husband applications” when attending the Kentucky Derby recently.
Allen attended the derby but did not mingle with Williams, fueling suspicion that they had terminated their five-year romance.
The pair met when they were teens in Fresno, California, and have been dating since 2017.
Williams said on Kelly Stafford’s The Morning After podcast in August 2022 that she and Allen had been dating for four years and had just moved into a new home in the neighbourhood that they had constructed.
Williams confessed in an Instagram post that she had a crush on the future quarterback when they were youngsters. She tweeted a snapshot of herself and Allen early in their relationship with the message, “My 8 year old crush became my boyfriend a few years later.”
Williams is a Pilates teacher and the founder of the Pilates by Britt online training programme. She often shares training videos to her Instagram account, @pilatesby.britt, and said in a Story that she’s been doing Pilates since she was “around 15.”
Meanwhile, Steinfeld has mainly kept her dating life private. She dated musician Niall Horan in 2018, but the pair parted up in December of that year.
