I loved them together, but I wish them the best.” A third fan said, “So heartbreaking 💔 I loved you guys together.”
“This is such an eye opener moment for me,” another fan commented. “all those perfect pictures but we had no clue what went behind those cameras…I hope we all learn that perfect Instagram feed doesn’t mean perfect and happy life!”
“I was just thinking this. Like you would’ve never guessed based on all the trips, videos, and pics,” another follower replied. “This be why I focus more on my relationship than the anesthetic of it.”
Cheating Allegations Shocked Reddit Two Days Before The Divorce Announcement
On Monday, two days before their official divorce announcement, one user created a Reddit thread to ask if the couple was still together.
“Did they break-up?” user Disk_Unhappy asked. “Just noticing how they’ve stopped publicly communicating. They are currently at two different places partying and they don’t have their wedding bands on. 👀.”
A user named Aisoreal commented, “In the last week or so, Iyanna posted a story on IG about her having a girlfriends’ sleepover at Natalie’s. Just before that, she posted about if women have low standards, they’ll just keep forgiving the actions of bad men (something along these lines). I didn’t think much of it then, but in light of these speculations, this could’ve been a hint to her current status with Jarrette.”
Another user named curiousCAcat replied, “I heard he cheated and they’ve split, neither has been wearing their wedding rings lately. They haven’t been interacting on socials either (not liking each other’s posts etc).”
Tams585 agreed, adding, “I just noticed this also and saw in his most recent IG story he’s partying with his boys but his arm is around another woman and Iyanna has been spending a lot of time with her girlfriends.”
Although fans are disappointed in the news, they wish Jarette and Iyanna all the best.
