The ‘Pitch Perfect’ star split from Jacob Busch almost four months ago and has said it’s now been a “respectable amount of time” since her split to begin dating again.

“It’s been a respectable amount of time, you know, after a breakup. You have respect for the person you’ve broken up with, so now, yeah, out there looking,” she told ‘Extra.

The news comes after Rebel recently said her split wasn’t “ideal”. Rebel confirmed her breakup in February when she took to Instagram to share a picture of herself, in which she called herself a “single girl”.

“Lots on my mind...aghhhhhh...#single-girl-heading-to-Super-Bowl!” she captioned the snap.

A source close to the star then commented on the news, saying the relationship had “just run its course”.

Rebel and Jacob were last photographed together during the Christmas holidays when they were on vacation together, which came three months after they’d confirmed their romance by attending Prince Albert’s Planetary Health Gala together in Monaco in September.

When their romance was first revealed, it was reported the couple were helping each other in their “health journeys” as they were both striving to lose weight.

“They are officially boyfriend and girlfriend. He’s a gentleman, has very old school manners and treats her well. He is also very health conscious, and they’ve been motivating each other with their health journeys,” a source said at the time.

Rebel previously said that before meeting Jacob, she spent an entire year going on dates with “anyone who asked her out” in a bid to find love. “I did an experiment where I dated anyone who asked me out. It was part of the rules of that year, not that I told people that was happening. I just had to give lots of people a chance, and then I learnt lots about myself.”
