Zylka dated Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale for nine months before they split in September 2012 — and the breakup got ugly.
Zylka took to bitterly tweeting about Hale, writing (via E! News), “Don’t have a girlfriend. She decided she was too good… There’s a difference between celebrities and movie stars. Celebrities fade away, while movie stars stick around forever.” He later tweeted, “Never any disrespect towards anyone. Only if you say what you say you should stick to it. If you say you love then love.”
Hale took the split in stride, and the next day, Zylka apologized for his saltiness.
“I’d like to apologize about my previous comments,” he tweeted (via Us Weekly). “Lucy is not only one of the most talented people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing, but also one [of] the most beautiful, inside and out. Anyone who’s ever watched, or had the pleasure of meeting her, knows this to be true… I apologize for tarnishing any view anyone has on this amazing woman. I had the honor of loving her. That love will never fade, as your love should never fade from her as well… The last thing I want to do is be any reason for her to look bad in any way. She a remarkable human with an infectious personality, and a heart bigger than anyone’s I’ve ever known. Proud to love her. And I’ll continue to be her biggest fan as I know she will to me too.”
