Lorde, 26, might no longer be part of ‘the love club‘.
In a recent open letter titled ‘How I’ve been, revised’, the singer hinted she has broken up with her longtime boyfriend Justin Warren, 42.
In the candid statement seen by NZ Herald, the Supercut singer shared with fans on Wednesday, September 20, that she is “living with heartbreak again.”

“I’m different but the same. I ache all the time, I forget why and then remember,” she emotionally penned.
“I’m not trying to hide from the pain, I understand now that pain isn’t something to hide from, that there’s actually great beauty in moving with it. But sometimes I’m sick of being with myself.”
Lorde, whose real name is Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor, was first linked to the music executive in 2015.
The singer and her partner, who is 17 years her senior, have kept their relationship on the low over the years, with rare appearances including a Sydney outing in May this year.

In the letter, the Green Light singer carried on to reveal she has been struggling with illness behind the scenes this year.
“My body is really inflamed. It’s trying to tell me something and I’m trying to support it but nothing seems to help and I get frustrated,” she candidly wrote.
“My gut isn’t working properly, my skin is worse than ever, I’ve gotten sick half a dozen times,” the Royals singer added.
The 26-year-old has been booked and busy over the last 12 months with her Solar Power World Tour which began in April 2022 and finished up in Australia in March this year.
“I realised earlier this year that listening to my body is hard for me, it’s something I never really learned how to do,” she said.

Lorde shared that amid ongoing physical health struggles, she had made the decision to stop medication she had been taking everyday for over a decade.
“The little yellow pill I took every morning for thousands of mornings since I was 15, I stopped taking it five days ago. Gonna see how it goes,” she wrote.
In the letter, Lorde also spoke candidly about recreational drug use and the negative role of social media in her life before finishing on a more positive and light-hearted note by assuring fans that don’t need to “worry” about her.
Just last month, the singer, who notoriously doesn’t post on social media very often, hinted at a return to the music scene.
Lorde’s third studio album, Solar Power was released back in 2021. Since then, the Ribs singer embarked on her world tour and hasn’t dropped any new tunes.
Sharing a series of snaps of her swimming in an indoor pool to Instagram, Lorde wrote: “No this is not the start of anything out there, just want u to know there’s a light on inside me .. show it to you soon.”
