Amanda Bynes and Paul Michael have broken off their engagement, according to a new report. The pair, however, do remain in a relationship.
“They are still together as a couple, but they have put a pause on their engagement and wedding planning,” a source told Entertainment Tonight Friday, adding that the pair called it off “sometime in 2021.”
“They have gone through ups and downs, together and personally, and realized they might have moved quickly, but they love each other and are still committed to one another.”
The “Easy A” actress, 36, announced her engagement to Michael — whom she met at a sober living facility — Valentine’s Day 2020, showing off a massive emerald cut diamond ring on Instagram at the time. While it was reported that the couple spilt the following month, Michael later told Page Six that they never broke up, which appears to still be the case.
“[Bynes and Michael] are still in a committed relationship and take their relationship seriously,” ET’s source added. “They wear rings now to show their loyalty to each other and as a symbol of learning and growing together, but the rings aren’t everything to them.”
The couple are also focused on their own personal growth as they navigate their relationship.
“Amanda looks great and has gotten through many hard and significant experiences that have helped make her an incredible woman. She is sober, killing it and doing better than ever,” the source continued. “Paul is in law school after working in healthcare for 10 years and doing well.”
Bynes’ attorney did not immediately return our request for comment.
