JoJo Siwa and content creator Avery Cyrus have called it quits after three months of dating. Cyrus and Siwa shared the news in a TikTok video featuring them and a group of friends on a Caribbean cruise. In the video, the Nickelodeon star gives her ex a gift from a claw machine, and says, “This is my sorry for breaking up with you present.”
The former couple’s fans were shocked to hear Siwa and Cyrus had split, with many of them asking what happened. Cyrus responded to one fan’s comment, writing of the break up, “We decided that we are better off as friends! We are both so young and still just trying to figure our stuff out.”
The “Dance Moms” alum previously confirmed her budding romance with Cyrus in a TikTok video shared on Sept. 12. In the clip, Siwa and Cyrus cozied up and cracked jokes together in a Chuck E. Cheese photo booth before sharing a kiss. Siwa captioned the post “happiest girl” with a heart-hands emoji. Two days after confirming their romance, the couple made their red carpet debut at the Los Angeles premiere of “Jagged Little Pill” on Sept. 14.
Less than a month later, Siwa shared another update on her new relationship in an Oct. 9 Instagram post, which included a photo of a sign that reads, “JoJo Be My GF?” That same day, the “Dancing With the Stars” alum posted a YouTube video where she opened up about her and Cyrus’s romance and shared footage of the sweet moment when the latter asked her to be her girlfriend during a trip to Disney World. “I’m so happy you said yes,” Cyrus says in the video, to which Siwa replies, “Of course. My God. I’d be insane if I said no. You’re the best girl in the world.”
Prior to announcing their romance, Siwa and Cyrus both frequently posted about each other on social media. Cyrus previously flew from Florida to visit Siwa because she was sick and wanted a hug. The two also filmed a mukbang and a few joint dance videos, in addition to popping up in each other’s Instagram photo dumps. Plus, they fed into the dating speculation with a cheeky lip-synced TikTok video of them joking about their “purely platonic” friendship, set to old audio of an exchange between Kourtney Kardashian Barker and ex Scott Disick.
Before announcing their relationship, both stars had recently parted ways with other partners. In August, Kylie Prew revealed that she and Siwa had broken up for the second time after rekindling their relationship in May. On Instagram Live, Prew told her followers, “It’s not deep, I promise. Everything’s fine. Not everything has to be messy and gross because it’s not, and I just want to clear the air. We’re both safe and happy and healthy, and that’s all that matters.” Meanwhile, Cyrus dated fellow TikTok creator Soph Mosca for two years before splitting in August.
