Dakota Johnson ‘giving ex another shot’
Dakota Johnson is back with her ex-boyfriend Matthew Hitt after a brief split, it has been claimed.
It was claimed in February the Fifty Shades of Grey actress and Welsh musician Matthew had ended their six-month relationship because he didn’t want to be involved in her stellar rise to fame.
But it seems Matthew has had a change of heart, as he and Dakota have been seen walking around New York City arm-in-arm.
Dakota, 25, looks more than happy in the images, and appears to be thrilled to rekindle her relationship with her handsome beau.
"She's giving it another shot," a source told Us Weekly.
The insider added to the outlet that while Dakota and Matthew “never really stopped talking” during their time apart, they decided to put their romance on pause when her career took off thanks to her role as Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades.
But now the pair are doing their utmost to make their relationship long-term.
"She really does like him," the source added.
The claims come after it was alleged Jake Gyllenhaal had set his sights on Dakota, after briefly dating her several years ago.
While the romance didn’t go anywhere, it was claimed that Jake had started to wonder if he should have tried harder to make things work.
"Jake and Dakota had a really brief fling in 2011, and he's always regretted dumping her in a kind of one-that-got-away way. It's been four years and he's still got a major thing for her. Now she's single, he's been sending her flowers and begging for a date," an insider told British magazine Heat.
Shortly after the pair went their separate ways Dakota got together with Jordan Masterson, who she was with for three years. She then had a six-month relationship with Matthew before their split in February.
