Weber and Flanagan have been dating for some time. But it looks like their relationship is over after they publicly talked about moving in together for the new year. The couple called it quits before they moved.

“I’m here to share that Kelley and I have decided to go our separate ways,” Weber wrote in part of his caption on Instagram. “While our relationship was filled with countless beautiful memories, our relationship simply didn’t work out in the end. Kelley is someone I will always have a special love for. Someone I have learned more from than she will ever understand.”

Flanagan later made her own Instagram post about the breakup. “Peter and I had some unbelievable times together and they will definitely be missed,” read her Instagram caption. “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.

She also added, “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!”

Weber and Flanagan’s announcements about their breakup didn’t go into detail about their breakup. But a source claimed to know the real reason they have split.

“The move was the final straw in some ongoing issues in their relationship; the biggest of which was that they were not on the same page about how they approached relationships,” a source told Entertainment Tonight.

“There was growth that needed to happen from Peter that wasn’t happening,” the insider claimed. The source said his mother, Barb made things harder for them.

“Barb was very involved and expected to be a major priority within Peter and Kelley’s relationship… She wanted to be Peter’s focus,” the source said.

Barb previously supported Weber and Flanagan’s relationship. She also left a comment on Weber’s breakup post.

“Love can be fickle and it is not for the timid. Those who have experienced it know it this all too well. But it is better to have loved and lost, than never to have loved at all. Our hearts ache for you two. Kelley will always have a piece of our hearts and we wish her only the best. Mom and Dad,” she wrote.

Weber and Flanagan have yet to say anything further about their breakup. But it looks like the latest rumor is his relationship with his mother came in between them.
