Taylor Lautner and his 'Abduction' co-star Lily Collins split

09/24/2011 by Olivia Allin

Taylor Lautner and Lily Collins, the 22-year-old daughter of musician Phil Collins, have reportedly broken up before the debut of their new action flick "Abduction."

The couple had been quietly dating, but according to E! News, broke up nearly three months ago, which made the premiere of their film rather awkward.

"At the Abduction party, it was awkward," a source told Us Weekly. "They barely said a word to one another."

According to E!, the relationship went south after Collins went to Canada to film "Brothers Grimm: Snow White" with co-stars Julia Roberts and Armie Hammer.

"[Taylor] wasn't into it, and she made all the effort," a source told E! News. "He wouldn't even visit her."

In "Abduction," which hit theaters on Friday, September 23, Lautner plays teenager Nathan Price, who discovers his baby picture on a missing person's website. His character then goes on the run from government agents while trying to find out the truth of who he is. The movie also stars Collins as Price's love interest and neighbor, Karen Lowell.

In the new October issue of Seventeen magazine, Lautner said there was immediate chemistry between the actors.

"You can feel some sort of chemistry or a connection when you are reading a script with someone for the first time, and that was totally the case with Lily," Lautner said.

The 19-year-old actor rose to fame playing the werewolf Jacob Black in the "Twilight" films. He was romantically linked to singer Taylor Swift for three months in 2009 after the couple appeared in the movie "Valentine's Day" together.

Collins is the daughter of British musician Phil Collins and his second wife, Jill Tavelman. She began acting at the age of two in the BBC series "Growing Pains."

She has since appeared in the 2009 film "The Blind Side" portraying Sandra Bullock's daughter and in the 2011 film "Priest" opposite Paul Bettany.
