It’s only been a few days since Jacob Whitesides completely gushed to us about his longtime girlfriend Bea Miller. Even though the musicians are both currently on tour, the 18-year-old singer said he and the 17-year-old have figured out ways to make their relationship work.
“The main thing is always communicate what we’re doing that day so we can utilize that time,” he said. “Because even if we can’t see each other in real life it’s still very important to talk to each other about everything that’s going on. It’s kind of like therapy for both of us.”
But while Jacob seemed fairly confident that he and Bea would be able to keep their love alive over these busy months, it seems that the distance may have gotten too much to handle; according to many fans, the pair has broken up.
While neither teenager has said anything directly regarding the alleged split, the former X-Factor contestant deleted almost all of her pictures with the “Lovestruck” crooner on Instagram, which is pretty strange seeing as he was once her favorite subject to photograph.
Even though Jacob has kept up most of his pics with Bea, he did delete the tribute to their one-year anniversary and posted a cryptic tweet that definitely alludes to a broken heart.
maybe life just wasn't ready for us

As we mentioned before, it’s the singers’ diehard fans who first noticed these unusual activities, and began immediately questioning their relationship status.
if jacob and bea actually broke up I just hope that both of them are fine & that they find their happiness some other way. they deserve it:)

Again, everything is speculation right now, but the signs of a split are definitely there. Poor things; we hope they’re able to keep their heads up at this tough time!
Bea isn’t the only celeb to delete all traces of her ex on social media after a breakup…
Umm, remember when Perrie and Zayn Malik had a fairytale engagement and we were all obsessed with it? Well, THAT'S dead and gone, and as far as Perrie's social media is concerned, it never even happened. After the infamous breakup, Perrie deleted EVERYTHING. All the cute Instagrams of her and Zayn over the years — gone. That's a bold move, but TBH, we kind of love it. Nobody messes with Perrie.
You didn't expect Zayn to just accept Perrie's shade without throwing it back, did you? He followed his ex's lead and deleted his own pics of the formerly-happy couple. Since then, he's made a habit of blowing up social media with his current flame, Gigi Hadid.
Zac and GF Sami Miro have been together for two years. (How did nobody know about this...?) But breakup rumors are out of control right now because he recently deleted every single pic of them off of Instagram and unfollowed her on Twitter! He hasn't officially confirmed a split, but that's a pretty clear signal that things have gone south.
Who can blame Joe for being salty about his breakup with Gigi Hadid? The two looked like they were totally in love, and suddenly she was all over Zayn. (Zayn doesn't seem to be very trustworthy, TBH.) Although there weren't really pics of him and Gigi to erase, he did go ahead and delete a picture of him with Zayn, just to make it extremely clear that he and his ex are NOT cool.
Honestly, we really thought Nick's relationship with Olivia Culpo had long-term potential. But after almost two years together, things just fell apart. And it must not have been a pretty split, because Nick started deleting pics of the two right away. It's since been rumored that he's hooking up with Kate Hudson and Lorde. Just another young Hollywood bachelor playing the field.
This one's a work in progress, but it's only a matter of time. Cheryl's been getting some controversial press lately because she recently got married... and she can't keep her hands off of Liam Payne. She and her (again, very new) husband are separating, so she's taken to social media to prove it's over. She started by deleting a shirtless pic of her hubby and has continued to delete from there. Pull your life together, Cheryl.
The gorgeous swimsuit model can pretty much date any guy she wants — so she has. She spent awhile dating soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, but apparently they decided they were just too attractive together, and they called it quits. Okay, it probably wasn't as simple as that because Irina went ahead and totally scrubbed all remnants of Cristiano from her social media accounts. She's since moved on to Bradley Cooper. Whatever.
