Lil Xan and Noah Cyrus break up in the messiest possible way on social media
The recent lovebirds took to Instagram to publicly accuse each other of cheating before unfollowing each other. Woe is love in the digital age!
It's official. Noah Cyrus and Lil Xan's fleeting romance is over, and boy was it messy. After practically sending live updates of their failing romance and mutual accusations of cheating to their combined fan base of 9 million followers on Instagram, the couple confirmed on their Instagram stories on Monday that they've called it quits, Buzzfeed reports.
"First and foremost: this relationship was not set up by Columbia Records. to say that is [a] joke,” the younger of the Cyrus sisters wrote in a message to her 4.4 million followers. “It started when I got a DM from Diego and he asked me to hang out. The truth is I haven’t seen him in almost a week. Every time we tried to hang out something always got in the way.”
The couple, who collaborated on the track 'Live or Die', sparked breakup rumors earlier on Monday when Lil Xan, (real name Diego Leanos), wrote that he felt like he was “probably being cheated on” in a since-deleted post.
But what takes the cake in the story is the ridiculously stupid misunderstanding that might have sparked this all. As several fans who documented the whole public break up point out, it all started when Cyrus sent Xan a meme that showed Charlie Puth's head on the body of a porn star, which Xan apparently mistook for an actual nude photo. "I’m heartbroken and confused," Noah told fans. "This is the meme I sent Diego that made him think I’m cheating on him."

Cyrus also decided it would be a wise thing to go live on Instagram while breaking down and tearfully telling fans that "I never did anything that I’m getting accused of." Cyrus also claimed that she was there for Lil Xan during his “dark times.” She added, “when you felt alone and like no one was there for you, I was. if this was your way of breaking up with me and breaking my heart along with it, then you’ve succeeded.”
For his part, in a video posted on his story, Lil Xan added, “It just hurts, like, so f–king bad. You think you know somebody, and then you just get used.” For some reason, he also posted a video of him taking a leak on the plaque for his song 'Betrayed'.
Lil Xan then took to Instagram (surprise!) to say he didn't break up with Noah because of the Charlie Puth meme—he broke up with her because she was "all over some other dude." He also shared a photo of Cyrus with her arms wrapped around another man. He captioned the post, “Call me whatever but if you're my girl you ain’t touching no dude like that sorry haha.”
To top it all of, Noah introduced a new angle to the whole story, claiming that Xan has been cheating on her. She apparently “noticed a hickey” on Xan's neck during a recent FaceTime call. “He told me it was just a bruise,” she wrote. “I decided to give him the benefit of the doubt and ignored it.”
Cyrus then went on to reply to Xan's accusation of her cheating on him with her own accusation of infidelity! “Cheaters like to accuse their partners of cheating to make themselves feel less guilt. this isn’t the first time this has happened to me and now im being forced to deal with crazy accusations when im not even sure where all this came from," she wrote.
Of course, the ultimate moment of truth arrived when the duo unfollowed each other on the social platform, like the poster children of love in the digital age.
