Yesterday (Apr 14), Charli took to her Instagram stories to talk about it. She stated: "Since you guys have watched mine and Chase’s relationship from the start, I decided I needed to tell you all that we are no longer together. It hurts me to say this, but we’ve decided that this is what’s best for both of us. We are still close friends and I would not change that for anything!"

She then added: "I truly have so much love for Chase and wish him nothing but the best for him. It makes me happy to see all of the great things he has going for him. I’m sorry I waited so long to tell you all. I wanted to take the time to process it for myself. Breakups are tough for anyone, so I’d really rather not talk about it anymore."

He continued: "We will always be friends and she will always hold a special place in my heart for the rest of my life. We are sorry it’s taken so long to come forward, but this was something we wanted to process privately first."
