Maybe Lily Collins' dad Phil Collins can console her with one of his classic ballads?

The actress, 22, has split with her Abduction costar Taylor Lautner, a source confirms to Us Weekly. "It was a clean break that Taylor initiated," the source says, explaining that the split actually occurred one week before the action film's red carpet premiere and after party in L.A. Sept. 15.

"At the Abduction party, it was awkward," the source admits. "They barely said a word to one another."

The duo were steadfastly quiet about their real-life romance, although Lautner told Seventeen magazine that they hit it off immediately.

"You can feel some sort of chemistry or a connection when you are reading a script with someone for the first time," Lautner said. "And that was totally the case with Lily."

Now, says the source, Lautner "wants to be single for a while...he can properly move on."

Lautner's most famous ex is perhaps Taylor Swift, his Valentine's Day costar, whom he dated for three months in late 2009.
