Jacob Busch has a history with older women.

Jacob Busch previously dated 59-year-old former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Adrienne Maloof for several years.

The former couple started dating in 2013, when Adrienne was 52 and Jacob was 24.

They dated on and off for about two years and split amicably in 2015. It seems young Jacob has a thing for pretty, older blonde women, seeing as Rebel is 40 and he's yet to hit his 30s.

"Jacob is very romantic. He made [Rebel] dinner at his penthouse recently and he is telling friends that he is falling in love with her," a source said.

Rebel Wilson was looking for love — and found it in Busch at the time.

Back in February, Rebel Wilson talked about her search for the right guy at the premiere of Isn't It Romantic. “I’m looking for a guy with definitely some kind of strength," she said. "If I feel like I could beat them in a jelly wrestling competition, then maybe that’s not the dude for me."

Wilson took to Instagram to announce her "single" status.

The How To Be Single actress took to Instagram on February 2 to reveal to her followers that she's now a single lady!

"Lots on my mind...aghhhhhh...#single-girl-heading-to-Super-Bowl!" she captioned a pic of herself outside of a trailer on what looks like a set. 

Sources also confirmed that Wilson and Busch's relationship had "just run its course."

Fans rushed to the comments section of the post to support Wilson, with one fan writing, "Just remember that you can only control your own actions and responses and break issues down into smaller resolutions you CAN control. And trust your gut. Always trust your gut."

Another simply wrote, "Love you so much."

Although breakups can be sad, it looks like Rebel is totally embracing her new single girl status, and has tons of support coming her way from fans and friends alike.
