‘Stranger Things’ actress Millie Bobby Brown has revealed that her fledgling relationship with her fellow teen star Jacob Sartorius has come to an end.
The pair confirmed their romance in January, but both posted statements to their Instagram stories telling fans that they had parted ways.
14-year-old Brown‘s statement read: “The decision with Jacob and I was completely mutual. We are both happy and remaining friends”, while singer and YouTube star Sartorius (15) posted an almost identical statement that read: “The decision with Mills was completely mutual & we are both happy and remaining friends.â€ť

Some people have been amused/dismayed that such a young couple have posted statements about the end of their 7-month romance at all…
When 14 year olds have to release a statement when they stop â€śdatingâ€ť. What a world. https://t.co/SpoXGBRXas

Millie Bobby Brown is 14 years old. Maybe 15 years old. Point is, she’s a baby. She’s a minor, and quite frankly having to make a ‘statement’ on social media about her ‘relationship breakup’ is all kinds of horrific; she should be allowed the privacy of her child peers.

It makes me so sad to see that they have to be so public about it. Theyâ€™re children.. Everything about how Millie Bobby Brown is treated in media pisses me off so much…

Seriously!? What the Hell is the world coming to when 14yo’s feel they need to release a statement confirming they’re ending their relationship of a few months! Celebrities or not, that’s ridiculous. Glad I grew up in a different era. #milliebobbybrown
