Alex Pettyfer and model Marloes Horst are officially dating. According to a source, the new couple have been dating for a few weeks and “are very happy together.” Before dating Horst, the I Am Number Four actor was romantically linked to Glee star Dianna Agron.
The British actor was first spotted with Agron in 2010 during the filming of I Am Number Four. The pair never confirmed their relationship, but the two clearly appeared to be smitten with each other. “Alex was making Dianna laugh so much that her face was beet red,” a source said.
The couple was reportedly secretly engaged two weeks before their breakup. A source close to the former lovebirds said the reason for the split up was because of Pettyfer’s controlling ways.” He would always take her phone and read her messages,” the insider said. “[He] seemed really paranoid that she would cheat.”
However, some tabloids claimed the actor was, in fact, cheating on Argon. The media speculated Pettyfer seemed to have an uncontrollable wandering eye. “Let’s just say a lot of us think his crazy suspicions came from somewhere,” a source said.” And it wasn’t worry over what Dianna was doing.”
Before the breakup, the Glee star shared a home with the actor. The media said the Argon took to staying in a hotel under a different name after the split. She was reportedly “terrified” of her ex-boyfriend. However, an insider close to the former couple told reporters that none of the speculations were true. “They were in love,” the source said. “They are young. Sometimes things just don’t work out.”
After dating Pettyfer, Argon began dating Australian restaurateur Nick Mathers. The couple began their romance in August 2013. They broke up in January 2014 due to unknown reasons.
