On Nov. 23, Elijah confirmed their breakup to the media, saying that it happened "a couple of months ago."
Despite this, the Senior High star stressed that he will always be her “number one fan” and will continue to support her ventures in the future.
"I'm always gonna have love for her and always gonna support her with whatever she does. I'm always her number one fan, basically but right now we are taking our time figuring, ourselves and our lives right now,” he said.

He continued, “So we're figuring things out. We're okay. We're not mad at each other.”
