Just over a month has passed since Josh Allen‘s longtime girlfriend, Brittany Williams, sparked breakup rumors after she unfollowed the Buffalo Bills star on Instagram and deleted several years’ worth of photos featuring the couple together. And now the 27-year-old quarterback appears to be moving on.
Allen was seen exiting a black SUV alongside “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” star Hailee Steinfeld on May 25, per The New York Post. Allen was casual in a white t-shirt and jeans as he wrapped his arm around Steinfeld, 26. The new animated Marvel movie, in which she voices Gwen Stacy, will be released June 2.
Photos of Allen and Steinfeld quickly went viral as Bills Mafia processed the possible new couple. One fan tweeted, “THATS MY QUARTERBACK,” while another person wrote, “NO WAY.”
SB Nation‘s Bruce Nolan joked, “Josh Allen seen out with Hailee Steinfeld just means I might get a Bills/Marvel crossover in my future so don’t ruin this for me.”
Seemingly supporting the suspicion that Allen is single, he did not post his annual Instagram birthday tribute to Williams on April 25, a tradition he maintained for six years.
Williams instead celebrated her birthday with girlfriends, who gifted her a cake with “#MHWN” written in icing on top, a hashtag that is linked to the podcast titled “My Husband Would Never.”
Brittany Williams Is ‘Accepting Husband Applications’
Allen unfollowed Williams on Instagram and deleted photos of the couple on his Instagram in early May. The move came on the heels of both Allen and Williams attending the Kentucky Derby, although they were never photographed together.
Williams appears ready to move on from her college sweetheart. On May 6, a friend of Williams, Karlee Zacky, shared a photo of the two women at Churchill Downs on her Instagram Stories, captioning it, “Now accepting husband applications @brittwilll.”
Allen and Williams were last seen together in March, when they took a group vacation to Mexico. The other couples on the trip included Bills backup quarterback Kyle Allen and fiancée Summer Juraszek, Jaguars wide receiver Christian Kirk and fiancée Ozzy Ozkan, along with Broncos quarterback Jarrett Stidham and his wife, Kennedy.
Hailee Steinfeld Previously Dated Niall Horan
Back in 2018, the “Pitch Perfect” star had a brief romance with One Direction singer Niall Horan, per Entertainment Tonight, which happened after the end of her relationship with Cameron Smoller. Ever since, Steinfeld has kept her private life private.
The Oscar-nominated actress recently opened up to People magazine about what she’s looking for in a partner.
“I ultimately want someone who supports me and who I can support and cheer on and be their biggest fan,” she said in a story published May 23. “I’ve been lucky enough to spend so much time with my family recently, and I have so many shining examples of what it should feel like to be with someone that makes you a better you and happy. I’m not really looking, so I don’t have a list of things. But I think the right person comes along when they do, and I imagine that’s the greatest thing ever.
“It’s an exciting thought to me, that part of life happening when it does, and I can only hope that it emulates what I grew up around,” she said. “Right now, I feel more confident in who I am than ever, and I just feel so grateful to be doing what I love.”
