Fans have seen Haley Lu portray a variety of characters that are in and out of love. But ever since she became well-known, she has only ever been publicly associated with one person in real life named, Brett Dier (@brettdier). The couple met on the set of Ravenswood in a supporting role and they both fell in love after working together
When Haley Lu Richardson was interviewed by Cosmopolitan in 2019, she shared the sweet story of how she ended up proposing to Dier. Most of the time, people spend a lot of time and work organizing their proposal to their partner. Unlike many people who hunt for the right location to propose, Richardson chose the most plain of settings.
While this may appear shocking, it makes perfect sense given how quickly Richardson decided to propose. According to her, she not only didn’t have an extensive strategy for how she was going to pop the big question, but she also asked Dier to marry her on the spur of the moment.
Here’s the thing. I didn’t prepare at all. I had no idea when I woke up that morning that I was going to ask someone to marry me that day. I was totally in the moment and this gut feeling came up and coerced me to ask him to marry me and I did. And he said yes. I feel like the trick to that was just not thinking about it at all before it happened. I just kind of did it.
Finally, after finishing talking about the day Richardson and Dier got engaged by describing how she felt at the time. She concluded,
It was just the best day ever. It’s the best my heart has ever felt. I never knew my heart could feel that good.

Given that Richardson and Dier were clearly in love, it should come as no surprise that their divorce was difficult for the couple. When the couple announced their breakup in November 2022, they also confessed they’d broken up two years before.
While some famous couples announced their breakup via a press release, Haley Lu Richardson revealed the news with an Instagram photo of herself with Dier, writing,
Hey guys. This is me and Brett. We actually separated two years ago. But life goes on and we are both existing and doing pretty well turns out. We shared a deeply special chunk of our lives together I’m so glad to have had the last couple years to heal and grow without the internet knowing but we kinda just wanted to share it and move on now. Love yourselves! Life is life babies!
And, just like Richardson, Dier also announced the end of their relationship on Instagram at the same time. He wrote,
We separated 2 years ago but we saw each other today for the first time. We are happy and so thankful for the time we had together. (For those people who have been dying to know what happened to us) Haley’s post is better worded so go read that one! Have a great day!
As of yet, neither Richardson nor Dier have divulged the reason for their split, although they have both stated that they adore each other.
