Richard Madden and best pal Brandon Flynn are no longer sharing their LA home after huge fallout
He’s had a huge fallout with best pal Brandon Flynn, star of Netflix show 13 Reasons Why, and they are no longer sharing the same house in Los Angeles.
And making it clear they haven’t just drifted apart, Brandon has asked bosses at fashion house Versace not to invite Richard to a party the brand is throwing next month.
The pair forged a close friendship earlier this year after Richard moved to the US to further his career.
US actor Brandon, who has dated Sam Smith, will be the face of a new Versace collection next year and doesn’t want to see his former pal at any of his events for the company.
A source close to the pair said: “Richard and Brandon bonded over being up-and-coming actors in the industry and decided to share a place while both working in LA.
“But they have fallen out in the past few months and have cut ties with each other.
“Brandon has made it clear he doesn’t want to see Richard because he asked the team at Versace not to invite him to a party they are having at the beginning of December.
“Richard has been dressed by the brand a few times and he spoke with (Elton John’s friend) Donatella Versace to prepare for his role as John Reid in Rocketman.
“But as they are working with Brandon now, they are respecting his wishes and haven’t asked Richard to attend the bash.”
Richard, who is back in the UK shooting Marvel film Eternals, moved to LA at the beginning of the year after splitting up with his actress girlfriend Ellie Bamber.
There was later speculation he may be more than friends with Brandon, but when asked about that, he said: “I just keep my personal life personal.
"I’ve never talked about my relationships.”
