It saddens me to say this but Peter and I have decided to go our separate ways. Peter and I had some unbelievable times together and they will definitely be missed. Unfortunately him and I are in two different stages of our lives and saw our future paths differently. I wish Peter the absolute best and want to thank everyone for your continued support as I move on to my next chapter. I’m still hoping to make it to New York one of these days, but for now I just want to focus on my happiness! 2021, I can’t wait to see what you have in store!”

Ever since the breakup was announced, fans have speculated what happened between Flanagan and Weber. Flanagan’s Instagram seemed to add fuel to the fire.

“Hm this really doesn’t tell us much or even who called it off. I guess moving in together does bring up a lot of conversations about the future…,” a Reddit user wrote.

One fan wrote on Reddit, “I find it so interesting that most people are assuming he broke up with her/wasn’t willing to commit! I always got the feeling that she was never as into him as he was her.”
