Michelle Williams ‘splits with Dustin Yellin’

Michelle Williams has reportedly split from her boyfriend.

The 33-year-old actress had been dating artist Dustin Yellin for around a year, with the pair first stepping out together in May 2013.

Things were thought to be going well for the pair, with claims in March that Michelle was hoping Dustin would pop the question this summer.

However, Us Weekly now reports the pair have decided to go their separate ways. At the moment it’s not known why they broke up, although they haven’t been seen together for some time.

Dustin was also notably absent from the celebrations for Michelle’s Broadway show Cabaret’s opening night last month. That didn’t immediately raise eyebrows though, as the actress is renowned for keeping her private life out of the public glare. She and Dustin were only photographed together a few times over the course of their romance, including last June when they were seen walking together in Brooklyn.

Prior to her relationship with Dustin, Michelle dated Jason Segel. They were based on opposite sides of the country though and it’s thought the distance eventually drove them apart.

The My Week with Marilyn star has eight-year-old daughter Matilda, whose father is the late actor Heath Ledger. She is said to prefer living in New York City to the west coast as it allows the girl more anonymity.

Michelle has been open about putting Matilda first many times, explaining she views looking after her daughter as her main job during an interview last year.

“Raising the kid is the work, yeah. And it’s amazing, and it’s the ultimate creative act. That’s my side project and my center project,” she told Paper magazine.

“I wish I had side projects! I’m kind of like a ‘one thing at a time’ girl. I can’t really take on [more]. I wish I was one of those people who’s also taking lots of photos and going to cooking classes. But I just work and raise the kid. That’s all I can do.”
