I also heard that we broke up [laughs]," she claims in a statement.
They are currently in the middle of promoting the film. It was reported that Cera was the one who initiated the split because he wanted to date around and Charlyne was very sad.
Although a reason for the break-up has not been confirmed, rumors are flying that Cera ended his relationship with Yi because his star is rising in Hollywood and he wanted to have fun dating other women. "He's been with her since before he was super famous, and now all these girls fawn over him.
Cera and Yi recently wrote and filmed Paper Heart together. But he's actually in Toronto right now filming a movie called ' Scott Pilgrim.' So that's interesting [laughs]." Prior to Charlyne Yi's confirmation regarding the nature of her relationship with Michael Cera, both of them were believed to be dating.
Paper Heart is a documentary that chronicled the couples relationship. Last week, Star Magazine ran a story claiming the two called off their romance after three years of dating.
Whether put-on or physical impossibility, both theories leave room for a Cameron Crowe-style reconciliation.
