Halsey and Alev Aydin have reportedly ended their relationship after more than three years of dating. The couple welcomed their son Ender Ridley Aydin in July 2021 and have confirmed that they plan to co-parent their child following their breakup. Despite the split, sources say that the two have ended things amicably. 

It’s unclear when the couple separated, but Halsey filed court documents on April 5, requesting full physical custody of their child and joint legal custody. The last public photo of the couple on Instagram was posted on February 14, 2022, where Halsey shared a snapshot of them kissing for Valentine’s Day, captioned with “ya’aburnee,” referencing the final track on her Grammy-nominated album “If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power.” 

Halsey and Alev Aydin were first spotted together at a basketball game in 2019, but their romantic relationship was not confirmed until two years later when Halsey announced her pregnancy with Aydin confirmed as the father of the baby. The couple was known for keeping their relationship private, only posting photos on Instagram for special occasions, and rarely speaking about their relationship in interviews. 

In August 2021, Halsey revealed in an interview that she and Aydin had been friends for four years before their relationship became romantic. She said, “Alev and I have been good friends for four years. And when the stars aligned, our relationship became romantic and it was pretty evident that he and I were both like, ‘Oh, my gosh! You’re the person I’m supposed to start a family with.’” Aydin co-starred in Halsey’s music video for “So Good” in 2022, which also featured home videos with their son. 

Before Alev Aydin, Halsey was in a relationship with Evan Peters in 2019, and they reportedly dated for over a year. However, Halsey abruptly deleted all photos of Peters from her Instagram in March 2020, which confirmed their split. Halsey has been open about her past relationships, including her on-again, off-again relationship with rapper G-Eazy, which ended in 2018. She has also dated musicians Yungblud and Machine Gun Kelly. 

Halsey has been vocal about her journey to parenthood, sharing updates about her pregnancy on social media and in interviews. She has also been open about her struggles with endometriosis, a condition that can affect fertility. After the birth of her son, Halsey shared an emotional message on Instagram, saying, “I have no idea what I’m doing, but I’ve never felt love like this before.” 

In an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Halsey discussed the challenges of balancing motherhood and her career, saying, “I’m trying to figure out how to do both, and it’s a lot of pressure. It’s a lot of guilt. It’s a lot of feeling like I’m doing it wrong, but I’m trying my best.” 

The “Without Me” singer, whose real name is Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, requested joint physical custody of Ender from the court, and the ex-couple intends to co-parent the kid who was born on July 14, 2021. On April 5, Halsey sent the summons along with a request for joint expenses.
