Williams, who’s known Allen since they were children, and dated since college, first sparked breakup rumors in mid-April. She unfollowed the Wyoming alum on Instagram and deleted several years’ worth of photos featuring the couple together. A few weeks later, Allen unfollowed Williams on Instagram and deleted all recent photos of the pair on his Instagram page.
The move came on the heels of both Allen and Williams attending the Kentucky Derby, although they were never photographed together. While neither Allen nor Williams have publicly commented on their breakup, they both appear ready to move on. On May 6, a friend of Williams, Karlee Zacky, shared a photo of the two women at Churchill Downs on her Instagram Stories, captioning it, “Now accepting husband applications @brittwilll.”
Allen and Williams were last seen together in March, when they took a group vacation to Mexico. The other couples on the trip included Bills backup quarterback Kyle Allen and fiancée Summer Juraszek, Jaguars wide receiver Christian Kirk and fiancée Ozzy Ozkan, along with Broncos quarterback Jarrett Stidham and his wife, Kennedy.

I’m not really looking, so I don’t have a list of things. But I think the right person comes along when they do, and I imagine that’s the greatest thing ever.
