Francis Bolle Lothario, from the British reality soap opera "Made in Chelsea" has apparently gone public with the reasons behind his breaking up with British actress Emma Watson. Apparently, he dumped Watson since he "didn't want to date some child actress" and he wanted his own claim to fame.

"We had a bit of a thing a while back, but I have always been an ambitious person and I want to achieve my own notoriety for what I've done. That's why I chose not to pursue it any longer, because I didn't want to be the boyfriend of some child actress," said Lothario, in a report by the Daily Mail.

"I actually really like Emma. She's a really cool person. She's a very different person to who she is in the media. That's what I liked about her - she's very interesting," added Lothario.

"No [I don't see her], but we do share a lot of mutual friends and our paths cross from time to time," said Lothario, when asked if he was still in touch with her.

However, Watson's fans are seeing red at what they see as outrageous claims on Lothario's part. Watson herself has yet to comment on the matter.

As of now, Watson is busy adding the finishing touches to her forthcoming film, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower", in which she co-stars with her boyfriend, American Johnny Simmons.

"I was very nervous before we started shooting. I was very nervous about the American accent. My script was covered in notes about all these American words, American slang. I was quizzing my friends about high school and prom and everything, and then Steve [Chbosky; the author of the book on which the film is based] was just like, 'Emma, this is great and everything, but you just really need to let all of that go" because he said he saw me as Sam, and it was kind of as simple as that,'" said Watson, in a report on the-leaky-cauldron.

"The Perks of Being a Wallflower" is expected to hit the big screens in early 2012.
