"We actually kinda broke up a few days ago, just 'cause we're so busy traveling and all that," Austin revealed to Entertainment Tonight. "We thought it was just kinda best if we just chill for a second, but we're still super close."
Crossing our fingers they're close enough for a reconciliation. Even if that's not in the cards though, there's a chance we'll see more musical collaborations from them in the future. "I think she'll definitely be featured on [my] album," Austin said. "Like I said, we're still close and I've produced and written some songs that we've done." Yes, please.
Austin and Becky's break-up came on the heels of a few cryptic tweets and Instagram posts from both of them recently, with Austin randomly tweeting Aug. 9, "you'll always mean the world to me," and Becky tweeting the next day, "Guys I'm fine! I'm happy! I'm going on TOUR!! It's just stressful. But I promise I'm good :) love you guys."
Distance always makes a relationship difficult, but even with Becky and Austin's busy schedules, we still held out hope they would make it. Back in June, Austin admitted dealing with being apart was "always tough," but told E! News they made their relationship work by making the most of their time when they were together.
We'll miss these two getting lovey dovey on the Gram, but we're glad things are amicable and they're still close. Wishing both of them the best of luck as they move forward with their careers.
