All the Musical.ly Couples That Called it Quits in the Past Year
2017 was an interesting year when it came to celebrity breakups. Some of the BIGGEST Hollywood pairs went their separate ways, seemingly out of nowhere. Chris Pratt and Anna Faris‘ separation left us shook. The breakup between Sarah Hyland and Dom Sherwood was beyond unexpected. And the circumstances surrounding Selena Gomez and The Weeknd‘s demise were some we would’ve never imagined. But the mainstream celeb world wasn’t the only part of Tinseltown that was affected by splits.
As usual, some of our favorite celebrity couples are the ones that develop from social media. Can you even imagine what life would be like without Zalfie to ship? What about if Jenna Marbles and Julien Solomita were not a thing? No thank you! But unfortunately, you know how the saying goes — ‘all good things must come to an end’ — and that’s exactly what happened between a handful of musical.ly pairs in 2017.
If there’s one thing we know about following along with a relationship between social media influencers, it’s that we’ll always be kept in the loop. Cheating rumors? We’ve heard ’em all. Nude photo allegations? Been there, done that. So when it comes to breakups, we basically never never to worry about wondering if the rumors are true or not. All of the Musers on the list below not only let fans into their relationships during the good times, but also during the bad, the dramatic and, ultimately, the end.
This year, there actually weren’t THAT many pairs of musical.ly stars who decided to call it quits, which is actually quite impressive seeing as basically all of them date each other. It’s important to remember that most Musers are very young, so dating various people is natural and expected. Did you REALLY expect Blake Gray and Baby Ariel to last forever, after all?
Baby Ariel & Blake Gray
This musical.ly couple had TONS of fans from the moment it became official in November 2016, but unfortunately the fairy tale didn't even last a year. On July 2, 2017, Blake tweeted, "Ariel and I decided to take a break from each other for right now. We're still gonna be really close. Gonna miss you."
He then wrote more Twitter notes about finding himself, being changed by fame, etc., but ultimately confirmed that Ariel "is hands down the nicest girl [he has] ever met."
She later chimed in, "Hi guys, I am hurting a lot right now & need time to heal. I will always love & care about him. Thank you for understanding, I love you more."
