English television presenter Alexa Chung was reportedly ''bored and sad'' following her break-up with Alex Turner, the frontman for the Artic Monkeys. Chung has spoken out for the first time since her four-year relationship with Turner ended in July of 2011, stating that she didn't know what to do with herself. The 29-year-old model and presenter apparently started a new project instead of wallow in heartache, apparently, which led to the writing of her new book, 'It'.
In a discussion about the time after her relationship ended, Chung said: ''I was approaching 30, and reflecting on how a lot had happened in such a short space of time ... And I was bored - really bored. Bored because I didn't have my fuse gig yet. Bored and sad. I shouldn't have said that. But, well, it's the truth. I was heartbroken and I didn't know what to do, so I decided to throw myself into a project.''
Said project involved Chung permanently relocating to New York City, and working as a television presenter for Fuse News. Since the end of the relationship, Chung has dated actor and 30 Seconds to Mars frontman, Jared Leto; The Stokes guitarist, Albert Hammond Jr.; and Theo Hutchcraft - frontman of Hurts.
In an interview with Style magazine, Chung discussed her multiple relationships, stating: ''[It's] really good, not to brag or anything ... I'm a serial monogamist. I've had a string of months-long situations. Actually, the past two weeks is the first time I've sort of been single - ever. It's really nice. I feel calm.''
