Matt Rife and Jessica Lord Split: Inside Their Unexpected Breakup

Matt Rife and Jessica Lord, once a promising couple, have officially ended their relationship. According to TMZ, the pair has been separated since March 2024. A source close to the couple revealed there was no animosity; their romance simply fizzled out.

Rife and Lord first sparked dating rumors in the summer of 2023, after the comedian left flirty comments on the actress’s social media. By October 2023, Rife confirmed their relationship on the “2 Bears, 1 Cave” podcast, saying, “She’s very smart. I love that. She’s never been insecure about the amount of attention that I get.” He added that Jessica understood the female attention he received came with his career.

The Rise and Fall of Their Romance

The couple’s relationship seemed to thrive initially. They made their red-carpet debut in November 2023, delighting fans. One Instagram user commented, “Barbie and Ken — they’re perfect.” However, some red flags hinted at potential issues.

A significant concern was Jessica’s previous relationship. Matt revealed on the “Podcrushed” podcast that he pursued Jessica despite knowing she had a boyfriend. He recalled, “I stayed an extra two days just so I could keep hanging out with her.” This complicated beginning cast a shadow over their relationship.

Busy Careers and Growing Apart

Both Rife and Lord have demanding careers that contributed to their breakup. Rife’s career skyrocketed after gaining fame on social media, leading to a sold-out comedy tour. He shared on Instagram, “THE WHOLE TOUR IS SOLD OUT!!!!! What an absolute dream, thank you all so much!” His busy schedule kept him on the road, making it hard to maintain a relationship.

Jessica Lord also had a packed schedule. She starred in the 2023 film “Binged to Death” and landed a role in “Murder at Hollow Creek” in 2024. Additionally, she pursued her passion for dance, often sharing videos from her dance sessions.

No Hard Feelings

Sources told TMZ that the breakup was amicable. The insider said, “The romance just ran its course.” Rife has not been romantically linked to anyone new since the split. He remains focused on his comedy tour, which resumed after he canceled some shows due to a medical emergency.

A Look Back at Rife’s Romantic History

Matt Rife’s relationship with Jessica Lord is not his first high-profile romance. He previously dated “Pretty Little Liars” alum Lucy Hale and “Underworld” star Kate Beckinsale. His relationship with Beckinsale was described as “complicated,” with many ups and downs.

In December, YouTuber Brooke Schofield shared her breakup experience with Rife, accusing him of cheating with multiple women. She revealed on the “Cancelled” podcast, “There were timelines, there were Venn diagrams, we were comparing notes.” This history adds context to the challenges Rife faced in his relationship with Jessica Lord.

Matt Rife and Jessica Lord’s breakup may come as a surprise to fans, but the couple’s busy careers and complicated pasts played significant roles in their decision to part ways.
