We're an absolute mess over the news that one of our favorite couples, Dove Cameron and Ryan McCartan, have shared. The pair, who have been together for about four years, confirmed that they've broken up, almost six months after they announced their engagement.
Ryan shared the news himself on Twitter, explaining that Dove decided to end their relationship.
Dove has decided this relationship isn't what she wants. We still love each other very much. Please be sensitive, as this is painful.— Ryan McCartan (@ryanmccartan) October 5, 2016
He followed up with a thank-you message to supportive fans.
I love you all. Thanks for keeping me up 💙— Ryan McCartan (@ryanmccartan) October 6, 2016
Later, Dove also tweeted to thank fans and assure us that there is still love between the pair.
Thank you for your support & full hearts in this very intense & human time. There's a lot love between Ryan & I. Life is beautiful & long.— Dove Cameron (@DoveCameron) October 6, 2016
This news comes shortly after fans began speculating that #Rove had gone their separate ways, noticing Ryan had unfollowed Dove, her friends, and her family on social media.
The fate of their band together, The Girl and the Dreamcatcher, has yet to be revealed, but for the sake of their awesome music, we hope that they're still able to perform and record together.
