It appears that The Bachelorette 2021 stars Brooke Blurton and Darvid Garayeli have now blocked each other online following their recent split.
In case you missed it (though we doubt you did!), Darvid revealed that the couple had broken up via his Instagram story on January 2.
Brooke was then forced to address the post, eventually sharing one of her own, admitting that she was blindsided by his announcement. She later deleted all non-Bachelorette-related photos of the pair from her account.
Now, it looks like the estranged couple has taken it one step further by blocking each other on the ‘gram.
And if that doesn’t signal that they’re done for good and things have ended not-so-amicably, we’re not sure what does!
Why do we think this? Well, we’re glad you asked! We conducted a mini investigation today and here’s what we’ve discovered…
Brooke Blurton and Darvid Garayeli Are No Longer Tagged In Each Other’s Photos
While Darvid is yet to delete his loved-up snaps with Brooke from his account, it’s important to note that she is no longer tagged on any of the posts she appears in and was previously tagged in.
Similarly, in the few remaining snaps that feature Darvid on her own account, his user tag is also MIA. This is usually indicative of the fact that the affiliated users have blocked each other.
This can also be seen under each of the stars’ ‘tagged’ tab on Instagram. There are no traces of their relationship whatsoever.
Yes, our man Darv could have gone through each photo individually and removed his tags from Brooke’s photos (which we doubt because that sh*t is time-consuming AF!). But we stand firm on the belief that the reality stars are taking an ‘out of sight, out of mind’ approach to their fractured relationship.
Another clue? The tags for the other accounts on the photos still remain.
FYI: when you block an account on Instagram, it automatically removes their tag from your photos. So our theory seems to check out!
Brooke Deletes Darvid’s Christmas Gift From Instagram
It isn’t just Darvid that has been wiped from Brooke’s Instagram account.
She has also deleted the image of the Balenciaga bag he gifted her for Christmas.
The flat lay of the bag had survived Brooke’s Instagram cull when she wiped all recent photos of Darvid from her account last week. However, the photo has since been removed as well.
