Tweet your heart out, Chris Zylka.
Two days after announcing the end of his nine-month relationship with actress Lucy Hale, 23, via Twitter, the American Horror Story actor, 27, decided to publicly apologize to his ex-girlfriend September 18. (Zylka told one Twitter user Hale "decided she was too good" for him.)
Hale, who plays Aria Montgomery on the hit ABC Family series Pretty Little Liars, has yet to comment on her split with the actor.
"I'd like to apologize about my previous comments," Zylka wrote in a series of tweets. "Lucy is not only one of the most talented people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing, but also one the most beautiful, inside and out. Anyone who's ever watched, or had the pleasure of meeting her, knows this to be true."
The couple met at a New Year's Eve party and began dating shortly after.
"I apologize for tarnishing any view anyone has on this amazing woman. I had the honor of loving her. That love will never fade, as your love should never fade from her as well. She's going to change the world one day. And the last thing I want to do is be any reason for her to look bad in any way," Zylka continued. "She a remarkable human with an infectious personality, and a heart bigger than anyone's I've ever known. Proud to love her. And I'll continue to be her biggest fan as I know she will to me too. Love you all and be well and don't forget, Aria rules!"
Though Hale is single again, the aspiring country music singer isn't on the rebound. "All the people I want to date are married!" she laughed to Us Weekly at at NYLON and Sony's September TV issue launch party September 15.
