The two had gotten engaged in late August during a trip to Costa Rica. At the time, Mobley had gushed, “Two souls, one heart ❤️ It’s official!! 💍 The one 4L!! I love you to the ends of the earth! ❤️.”
However that Instagram post has since been deleted along with several other posts documenting their time together as the couple goes their separate ways.

In an Instagram post shared on Tuesday, October 11, the reality star shared a black-and-white photo of the two holding hands while walking along a boardwalk as she announced that they had decided to walk separate roads.
“While the last year has been tremendously exciting for both of us, we’ve realized that it’s best we walk separate paths,” the couple said in a joint statement. “We are so grateful for the lessons, growth, and memories we’ve had in this relationship. So many of you have watched our love story unfold, and we hope that you’ll continue to watch our stories while we move forward as friends.”
