A movie about Halsey’s life has been in the works for three years, and the real-life making of that film seems to be turning into a romantic comedy.
Back in 2018, Deadline broke the news that Sony Pictures was developing a film loosely based on the Manic pop star’s life in a similar fashion to Eminem‘s 8 Mile, with Halsey starring as herself. On Tuesday (May 18), a fan shared an April 25, 2018-dated article about how Sony had purchased the artist’s life rights on Twitter, asking, “Why did this never happen???” And Halsey answered honestly with a heart-eyes-worthy response.
“Bc alev was supposed to be writing it the past 3 years and we slowly fell in love instead. you know the rest!” she tweeted back.
Halsey revealed in late January that she was pregnant and expecting her first child, and the father of her baby was later revealed as her boyfriend, screenwriter Alev Aydin. The couple were first spotted together in public in October 2020. She set the record straight months later by letting critics know, “My pregnancy was 100% planned, and I tried very hard for this bb.”
She wore a rainbow crochet crop top in her pregnancy announcement that served as a subtle reminder of her previous pregnancy loss, with the expected child being a “rainbow baby.” She opened up about suffering a miscarriage onstage before she even had time to fully process she was pregnant in a 2018 interview on The Doctors. Halsey also shared that she was battling endometriosis, which can cause infertility, and she underwent surgery for it in 2017.
The then-23-year-old singer also said during The Doctors interview that she decided to freeze her eggs, saying, “I need to be aggressive about protecting my fertility, about protecting myself.” In February, Halsey proudly showed off the scars on her lower abdomen from the surgery on her Instagram Story. “The scars that got me this angel,” she wrote, adding the hashtag #endowarrior.
Halsey previously starred as herself in a small cameo in 2018’s A Star Is Born with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.
