With The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 due in November, we're getting closer and closer to the film's promotional blitz, an annual ritual otherwise known as "National Jennifer Lawrence Month."

It's a 30-day J Lawr bonanza, in which the 24-hour news cycle revolves around the star's sartorial choices, spontaneous sound bytes, and red carpet shenanigans. To get you prepped for NJLM, we're going to get things rolling early, with a juicy story courtesy of Celebrity Fix. According to the Aussie gossip site, Nicholas Hoult has dumped his ridiculously famous girlfriend because of her "exploded ego."

In order to judge the veracity of this story, we must first consider where it came from. The story is based on unidentified sources, who claim that Hoult can't stand how "in love with fame Jen is." The sentiment stands in complete contrast to an interview Hoult gave back in January, in which he said that Lawrence's success is "fun to watch" and that she "deserves it all."

What's likely happening here is a gossip site trying to capitalize on earlier reports that Hoult was seen cozying up to indie darling Riley Keough in New York City recently. "Nic dated Riley when he and Jen were on their last break too and he is ready to give their relationship a shot,” the source added.

Despite the blinding limelight, both Lawrence and Hoult have managed to remain one of the most private couples in Hollywood, so don't expect an official statement from either party anytime soon.

In other words, don't start silkscreening your Team Jennifer/Team Nicholas tees just yet. (International Business Times)
