Chris Olsen and Ian Paget break up after being in a relationship for 2 years
On 7th Jan, Ian said while confirming their breakup, “The past couple of weeks have been difficult for Chris and me, but ultimately, he’s my best friend and always will be. While we’re not boyfriends anymore, we’re excited to explore our new relationship moving forward. We thank everyone for their continued love and support. In a way, this is just the beginning.”
Taking to his Instagram handle, Chris shared a post by writing, “Not an end, just a shift @ianpaget ❤️”.
Chris also confirmed this officially with his fans directly and said, “Not an end, just a shift ! We love u forever” in a Tiktok video.
He released a statement saying, “I’ll always have so much love for Ian. We’ve been through an incredible amount together, and we’ll always be connected in a beautiful way. While we’re going to take some time apart and grow as individuals — this isn’t the end of our time together, but a shift. I can’t wait to keep cheering him on.”
Just four months back they celebrated their anniversary together in Italy and updated pics on Instagram wishing each other which has received thousands of likes.
At the time, Chris shared a post by writing, “2 years of Chris & Ian. Happy anniversary, Ian.”
Ian also added a post on his Instagram handle by sharing a few pictures of the duo and writing, “2 years with my sweetheart. happy anniversary Christopher!”
Chris and Ian met first in July 2019 and started dating in less than two months.
However, few social media users realized sometime back that there is indeed trouble in paradise because the duo was sharing pics without each other on Instagram and other platforms.
They also realized that they are not liking and comment on each other’s posts.
Now the official confirmation of their breakup has created a lot of buzz on social media.
One user tweeted, “He would go on rants about his personal space or something like that just because the other one would ask for toast or some shit like that! I think once they realize they could make money it wasn’t a romantic relationship anymore and only a business relationship.”
When the pair uploaded their first video on their YouTube channel, Ian said in the video, “I was trepidatious at jumping into this new thing with someone who was so willing—he was just so willing to love me and he didn’t know me yet and so, that was beautiful. You just say yes to that.”
Both Chris and Ian have reiterated that they are still good friends in spite of their separation in their latest TikTok post.
