Modern Family may have taken home Emmy gold last night (August 25), but one guy won’t help star Sarah Hyland celebrate. Sarah’s rep confirms to Us Weekly that she has broken up with her boyfriend of five years, actor Matt Prokop.
Sarah and Matt’s “meet-cute” was at the auditions for High School Musical 3: Senior Year in 2008, and they co-starred in the 2011 Disney Channel movie Geek Charming. A year later, they shared the screen again when Matt played Sarah’s on-screen boyfriend in Modern Family.
In 2013, they teamed up yet again, but this time the joint effort was off-screen: when they Twitter-feuded with Amanda Bynes, who called them both ugly.
Maybe the online interaction with Amanda was the kiss of death?
Matt and Sarah can’t completely avoid each other, though — their film See You in Valhalla is still in post-production. (Sarah is the star; Matt is a producer.)
In that case, we hope Us’s source is correct in the assertion that the breakup was amicable…
