In December 2014, she and Dev Patel ended their six-year relationship, though neither of their reps commented on the breakup at the time. In fact, it wasn't until Patel began promoting his movie Chappie in February that the split was confirmed. "We are incredibly close," he told The Guardian. "She's just a really generous, patient human being who has been one of the most impactful people on my life. A lot of my motivation has come from her, from being with her and knowing her." Out of respect for their relationship, he declined to discuss the specifics of their breakup. "I'm sorry," Patel said. "I can't say."
Patel, 24, told E! News in March that his ex-girlfriend is a "wonderful human."
