Just months after they officially confirmed their relationship, Ariel Martin (babyariel) and her boyfriend Zach Clayton (bruhitszach) have officially split up! Awww.
Coincidentally, Ariel’s rival Loren Beech also split up with her boyfriend a few weeks ago.
“It was tough to do this,” the pair announced simultaneously on Instagram.
Zach & Ariel Confirm That They Ended Their Relationship
On Instagram, both Ariel and her ex-boyfriend Zach posted the exact same message as a caption on their respective photos.
Ariel and Zach said that they still “loved each other very much”, but ultimately decided to end their relationship. “We still care for each other,” they wrote. Despite breaking up, they both said that they felt “closer than ever”.
The couple told fans that they were going to be “just friends” on now on, and that there was no bad blood. “We will cherish the moments spent together, forever,” they wrote.
Ariel & Zach Explain Why They Broke Up
Why did Zariel break up, anyway? The pair revealed on Instagram that the main reason for their split was their long-distance lifestyles.
They wrote that “it was getting too hard” with “all of the distance” – and said that their very busy schedules and various tours weren’t helping much, either.
They asked fans to “not be sad” and thanked them for the support.
