“Me and Ashley broke up,” Cara, 26, tweeted at 9:40 p.m. Less than 20 minutes later the tweet was deleted.
The announcement was a shock to fans especially after Cara recently gushed about Ashley’s body on social media. The Pretty Little Liars star posted a nude photo on Instagram on December 5 and Rachel Brosnahan commented an emoji with a shocked expression and x’s over the eyes. Cara chimed in and said, “Tell me about it.”
Cara and Ashley , 29, first sparked romance rumors in August 2018, but they didn’t confirm their relationship until June 2019.
At the Trevor Project's TrevorLIVE Gala in New York City, the model gushed about her girlfriend during her acceptance speech. “I also have another very special woman in this room to thank and you know who you are,” Cara said. “She's one of the people who helped me love myself when I needed it most and I really needed it. She showed me what real love is and how to accept it, which is a lot harder than I thought.”
In September, Cara also elaborated on her relationship with Ashley during an interview with Porter. “I’d never truly let anyone in before, for fear of them leaving. I never really trusted people or felt worthy of it, and I always pushed them away,” she admitted “She’s the first person that has said: ‘You can’t push me away. I’m going to be nice to you, I love you.’ I’m just like, ‘Wait, so all I have to do is just let you be nice to me? Why have I never done that before?’”
Considering the couple’s recent PDA and loving messages, many fans believed the model’s account was hacked on December 9. Cara also tweeted about an iPhone giveaway, a link asking for donations to a Venmo account, directions to go follow her new “private account on Instagram” and “I think I’m turning straight.” All of the tweets have since been deleted.
Neither Ashley nor Cara have given a response about the alleged split or the series of tweets.
