The Hollywood rumour mill went into overdrive last week as it was reported that Nicholas Hoult was spotted cosying up to Riley Keough at No.8's Philo Prom party in New York City.

It sparked endless speculation about his relationship status with long term girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence. Were they or weren’t they together?

Well, TheFIX can reveal that not only have they split but it’s down to J-Laws "exploded ego" and obsession with the tinseltown scene.

"Jen is still desperately trying to get back with Nicholas after he broke up with her," says our source.

"They're still talking but Nicholas is moving on. He hates how in love with fame Jen is, and he told her he hates dating an A-list actress.

"That was the most hurtful to Jen because she's worked so hard for her achievements and she's so proud of her career. But Nic wants a more low-key girlfriend and Riley fits the bill."

Since the couple got together in 2011, 23-year-old Jen’s career has gone from strength to strength, cementing herself firmly in the Hollywood elite.

But it’s no secret that Nicholas, 24, shuns the limelight, opting to predominantly live in the UK rather than in LA.

And it’s caused tensions between the pair before, with them splitting in 2012, only to reignite the romance during filming of X-Men: Days of Future Past last year.

The source adds: "Riley is into acting in indies and not playing the fame game. She also spends a huge amount of time in the UK because her mom Lisa Marie Presley lives there.

"Nic dated Riley when he and Jen were on their last break too and he is ready to give their relationship a shot."
