Bybel confirmed that the two had split in a “Life Update Q&A” video on her channel. She said “We are broken up. I know, I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I know you guys are probably upset, but think about how I feel. It wasn’t something that was fun or ever planned or what I thought would ever happen, but it is the reality. I respect him so much as a person, and I know we’ll remain friends, hopefully forever, because we have been through so much together.” Continuing, she added “People change and people grow apart… There comes a time when you need to worry about you and your happiness, and that needs to come first and foremost … I believe that both people have to be happy. I’m gonna be OK, and he’s gonna be OK. And you never know what the future brings, but I feel that this is the best thing for both of us at this point in our lives. Maybe one day I’ll talk a little more in detail, but for now, that’s all I really have to say about that subject.”
