Morning Brew – Maria Bello splits from Clare Munn

Good morning!

Maria Bello has reportedly split from partner Clare Munn and is now dating 29-year-old actor Elijah Allan-Blitz. Here are the three of them together at an HRC event last year.

Maria identifies as a “whatever,” which she explained to us in a 2015 interview:

“There are so, so many labels and traditional labels just don’t seem to capture the reality of who we are in our time. I think there are so many more labels to explore and the LGBT community which I’m proud to be a part of.”
