And Halle “is much happier now,” the source reveals to the outlet. The 51-year-old actress recently took to Instagram Stories to share a photo of a black rope positioned in the shape of a heart along with the words “Done with love” written across the snap.

A source who spotted Alex on the outing told the publication that “they weren’t holding hands but it looked like they were there together as a couple.” The eyewitness added, “He pointed her to his car when they left and they stood really close to each other.”
Halle’s romance with the 35-year-old London-born music producer was her first major relationship since her divorce from , with whom she shares custody of four-year-old son Mateo, a year ago. Halle and Alex initially kept their relationship under the wraps for a few months as they were spotted leaving Il Cielo restaurant in Beverly Hills in July separately. They only in September via Instagram.
