Say it ain't so! G-Eazy and Ashley Benson are over after less than a year together, a source confirmed.

Rumors of their breakup began to circulate after fans noticed that Benson, 31, unfollowed her rapper beau, also 31, on Instagram. Benson and G-Eazy — whose real name is  Gerald Earl Gillum — were first romantically linked back in May when they were seen kissing in Los Angeles, just weeks after she ended her two-year relationship with ex Cara Delevingne

"They connected after working together recently, but have been friends for a while now and also have a few mutual friends," a source said of G-Eazy and Benson's relationship. "They are both funny and love being chill while sitting at home and laughing for hours."

And while "many people in their friend group thought Ashley and G would be a short fling," an insider said back in October that "they have been inseparable for months and are basically living together at this point."

They added: "G-Eazy thinks that Ashley brings him more down to earth and keeps him grounded. It's been very healthy so far and they are in a great place."

OK! previously reported that the power couple seemed to be going strong, as a source revealed that they were "in it for the long haul." The two had been quarantining together at Benson's home in L.A. and vacationing in Miami amid the ongoing pandemic.

"They have a very normal life together. They cook, work out, go on hikes and have friends over for dinner," the source dished. "When they're together, they are very affectionate and there is a ton of sexual chemistry between them."

Despite their friends' speculation that the duo would last, OK! recently reported that G-Eazy raised a few eyebrows after he was seen getting a little too cozy with a model on the set of his unreleased music video with Chris Brown on Thursday, January 14.

The Pretty Little Liars star was no where to be found on set in Southern California while the "No Limit" singer leaned in for a steamy kiss for the video.

Only time will tell if Benson and G-Eazy can "Still be Friends" after their split.

E!  was the first to report the former couple's split.
