Lena and Jack dated for five years, after being set up on a blind date in 2012.

"Here is the picture that my ❤️ @americaferrera insisted on taking so we'd have evidence that this is how we dressed for a nice dinner", she captioned a photo of the two clad in coordinating comfy clothes.

Earlier that month, Variety published an essay Dunham penned praising the Bleachers' lead singer. Therefore, I never thought I would issue a statement publicly supporting someone accused of sexual assault, but I naively believed it was important to share my perspective on my friend's situation as it has transpired behind the scenes over the last few months.

In the video, the 31-year-old showed off a number of rings adorning her fingers and revealed one particular piece of jewelry, gifted to her by Jack, would always have a special meaning for her. Now, Dunham is opening up to fans about the split, and she appears to be optimistic about the future.

Shortly after becoming a couple, the producer moved into Dunham's apartment in NY. The musician described their relationship as "pretty normal" in an interview with People in June. "It's pretty normal in terms of everyday life..."

During a 2015 appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the host brought up the couple's decision to hold off on tying the knot until gay marriage became legal. The original post featured an image of Dunham, Michelle Williams, Reese Witherspoon, Rashida Jones, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Emma Stone - all major actresses who pledged their time and money to the Time's Up initiative.

While speaking with the New York Times, he said, "It's hard to imagine when the right time is, because things are going so insane at the moment".

And now the pair seems to have patched things up. Antonoff was attending the Los Angeles show while on FaceTime with Dunham, who was presumably tuned in from her home in NY. "Jack and Lena were growing apart and it just made sense for them to end their relationship where it was", a source told the outlet.
