Did Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale, 23, really cut the relationship cord with Spiderman hunk Chris Zylka?

Celebuzz caught up with her co-star Keegan Allen on Thursday and he seemed shocked to hear of the news that they reportedly broke up this month.

Allen, who plays Toby on the hit ABC Family show, gushed, “Everyone is really really close and we love each other very much. We’re like a big family.”

When he heard about Hale’s recent breakup news, he was taken aback.

“She did? I didn’t know about that,” Allen confessed to Celebuzz at Teen Vogue’s 10th Annual Young Hollywood Party with Emporio Armani.

On September 16, the former Secret Circle actor, 27, went on a Twitter rant, before the news broke on September 18.

“Don’t have a girlfriend — she decided she was too good,” Zylka declared, adding, “Never any disrespect towards anyone. Only if you say what you say you should stick to it. If you say you love then love” — which was only the start of the mass tweets.

Regardless of their relationship status, Allen only had kind words to say about the two of them — praising Zylka for his artistic talent as a painter and actor, and raving that Hale is “very powerful.”

“I’m sure that whatever is going on between them, they’ll both come out of it OK. They’re incredible people.”

Allen even compared Hale and Zylka’s relationship to her on-camera romance between characters Ezra and Aria.

“Ezra and Aria are an amazing match, yet still going through that same tumultuous relationship too. It’s always fun when life mimics art so-to-speak, so we will see what happens. I’m sorry to hear about that if it’s true.”

What about Allen’s off-screen love life?

The TV hunk, 26, was mum, but he does have a passion for photography, spending most of his time on the red carpet taking pictures for pleasure instead of posing for the cameras.
