Lucy Hale and Joel Crouse Split?
Have two of country music's hottest newcomers called it quits?
According to US Weekly, actress-turned-singer Lucy Hale and Joel Crouse have broken up after dating for a short time. A source has confirmed the news, saying the rising stars are both just too busy for a relationship -- and too far apart.
"Lucy and Joel are done," the unnamed insider reports. "It was hard with the distance."
Hale's schedule is pretty packed -- she stars in ABC Family's 'Pretty Little Liars' and is now just as dedicated to a future in country music. "She's working a lot on 'Pretty Little Liars' and on music -- she debuted at the Opry over the weekend," the source furthers. "It got to be too much."
Hale made her Grand Ole Opry debut on June 21.
She and Crouse were first spotted as a couple back in April, and since then haven't been shy to post photos and videos of themselves on social media. The speculation of their relationship began after they were spotted together at an L.A. Lakers basketball game, and Hale shared her own photo of the date.
Hale even posted a video of the two doing a collaboration of sorts. During a long car ride, they sang the 'Frozen' theme together. Sadly, we may never seen an actual musical duet between the young hitmakers now that they've reportedly split, so fans will have to settle for their 'Let It Go' rendition.
