Emma Watson has always kept her love life out of the public eye. But in May 2021, a report from Daily Mail claimed she was engaged to Leo Robinton (who was her boyfriend for over a year at that time). However, the Harry Potter star denied this, saying she was not engaged.

Then, a month later, a source told Us Weekly that while Watson wasn’t engaged to the Californian businessman, she was looking for a long-term future with him. But destiny had a different plan for them, and they eventually broke up.

Along with the report from Daily Mail claiming Watson and Robinton were engaged, the ex-couple was photographed together on May 13, 2021, which confirmed that they were still in a relationship until spring 2021. But soon, Watson shut down engagement rumors on May 17, 2021. She wrote on X (formerly Twitter):

“Dear fans, Rumors about whether I’m engaged or not, or whether my career is ‘dormant or not’ are ways to create clicks each time they are revealed to be true or untrue.”

After a month, in June 2021, a source informed Us Weekly that Emma Watson desired a long-term future with Robinton but wasn’t in a hurry to get engaged to him. The source said: “Emma is so loved up with Leo, and this is the happiest anyone’s seen her in a relationship by a million miles.” The source continued:

“She was a little annoyed when people started gossiping about an engagement being in the works, but that was really just a privacy thing. Her and Leo’s friends do fully expect them to make things official at some point in the future, but they’re happy with how things are for right now. The main thing for them is having love and trust for one another, and it doesn’t take a ring or piece of paper for Emma to be happy.”

It definitely looked as if they had some serious future plans for their relationship, but unfortunately, it came to an end. It’s unclear when the Hollywood star and renowned businessman broke up, but by September 2021, Watson was already spotted with someone else.
