There are some celebrities who avoid social media at all cost. But there are others that use it to share their private lives with their fans. Sometimes it’s great and can show off their personality in new ways. But other times, sharing your most intimate moments can really backfire.
One of those cases is when a celebrity goes through a public breakup. In order to move on, that often means deleting all the posts of their ex and unfollowing them. This can be done without drama, but there are many who chose to diss their ex on social media as well.
So which celebrities publicly erased and unfollowed their ex from their profile? Here are 15 celebrities who unfollowed each other on social media after a breakup.
1. Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna
In 2016, the reality star couple got into messy fights on social media multiple times. Rob Kardashian made headlines for deleting everything that featured Blac Chyna on his Instagram account and then unfollowing her. So what was the reason for the breakup this time?
“They filmed over the weekend and had an argument,” a source told People “Rob tends to blow up and react very fast. … They have rushed their relationship so much.” This was before the two had their daughter, Dream so they made up since then and he followed her again.
The couple made headlines again in 2017 because Kardashian posted an explicit picture and videos of Chyna on Instagram. “Hahahaha Chyna just sent me this video saying happy 4th of July what a crazy person,” he wrote in a caption of a video of Chyna kissing a man on Instagram.
This led to the couple breaking up one last time, and Chyna suing Kardashian for posting a nude photo of her.
