Stranger Things star Charlie Heaton has fueled rumors that he and costar Natalia Dyer split after he was spotted with a mystery blonde at a London music event.
The duo seemed quite flirtatious while watching the Gorillaz perform at Luno presents All Points East in Victoria Park on Friday. In the pictures, the mystery blonde was seen wrapping her arms around him and chatting into his ear, laughing after getting cozy with the actor.
Heaton and Dyer have been the subject of split rumours for some time. Though they seemed to dismiss those when they were seen together on a shopping trip back in June. But now Heaton was spotted with another girl.
The photos were published by Daily Mail.

Despite the photographs leading some fans to believe that Heaton and Dyer have split, other fans pointed out that the mystery woman Heaton is embracing is just his close friend.
Both Heaton and Dyer were last spotted together on a shopping trip back in June and were promoting their show together as recently as May.
Before the recent split rumors, Dyer spoke publicly about her relationship with her costar with Cosmopolitan UK in May 2022.
“The weirdest thing about [our relationship] is other people’s perception and reaction to it. Everything else just feels very human. It’s an understanding that would be hard to replicate. It’s an indescribable thing,” Dyer revealed. “I’m always curious as to why it comes up. Why do people want to know about it?”
The actress also said that the public interest in her dating life has been hard to deal with over the years.
“Now that I’ve experienced the other side of it, it sounds so cliché but I’m just a person, too,” she said, and also noted that she understood the “natural instinct to want to know more about the people who are on your screens for hours.”
