Just one day after news broke that Michelle Williams had split from Dustin Yellin, her boyfriend of a year, the contemporary artist was spotted leaving the actress’s Brooklyn apartment accompanied by two friends. The trio appeared to be carrying bags out of the building on Wednesday, May 14, while sporting somber looks on their faces.

News of the breakup came a week after Michelle walked the red carpet solo at the Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Though the duo were rarely photographed together, they were first spotted holding hands while leaving the after-party for last year’s gala.

Michelle’s relationship with Dustin was one of few following her breakup from Heath Ledger, who tragically died from an overdose in 2008. Michelle was briefly linked to director Spike Jonze later that year, and dated actor Jason Segel from 2012 to 2013.

Relationship or not, Michelle’s life is all about her daughter Matilda, whom she welcomed with Heath back in 2005. “I wish I had side projects, [but] I can’t really take on more,” she revealed to Paper magazine early last year. “I just work and raise the kid. Raising the kid is the work. It’s amazing, and it’s the ultimate creative act. That’s my side project and my center project.”
