Chris Olsen Ian Paget know you’re devastated about their split, but it seems “pressure” from those well-meaning fans may have contributed to their breakup. 

The TikTok duo announced the end of their two-year romance on Jan. 7 and are now opening up about the reasons behind the decision. 

In a joint YouTube video posted on Jan. 11, Chris and Ian explained how being thrust into the spotlight and shipped as a “perfect amazing couple” affected them before they called off their romantic relationship. 

Ian stated, “Being seen in the public eye as we’ve gone through the past year and half, two years is crazy.” It was complex, complicated, multilayered and pressurized. We have decided for now that moving unromantically through this world would be best in our interests. 

He said, “We’re okay and want you guys OK.” This human is the one I love forever.
