Wait… what’s happened between Zoella and Alfie Deyes?
Well, nothing, apparently. But that’s not what some fans thought when Alfie, 22, posted a solo selfie to Instagram yesterday.
For some reason, they’d decided the fact that Alfie was posing alone meant that he and Zoella – real name Zoe Sugg – have ended their relationship. Er.
Alfie quickly took to Twitter to clear up the speculation, and it’s safe to say that he was NOT impressed.
The YouTuber wrote: ‘People causing drama on my Instagram as usual…nope Zoe and I haven’t broken up!
‘Instagram comments are the worst. I might just turn them off so no one can comment on my photos :/.’
So why did this speculation come about? We mean, it’s not exactly the first time that Alfie has posted a photo of himself without his girlfriend.
And the whole point of his post was to advertise his merchandise, writing the caption: ‘I bumped into so many of you wearing my @PBMerch today! Have you ordered any yet?’
But it appears as though some people have got it into their heads that Zoe’s actually dating her pal Tyler Oakley. Riiight.
Tyler – who’s openly gay – responded to Alfie’s frustrated Tweets yesterday with: ‘omg they’re hilarious it’s people always yelling at each other about how i’m dating zoe.’
Alfie replied: ‘haha okay apparently you’re dating Zoe & I’m kissing other girls and we’ve broken up…instagram’s a stupid place.’
Zoe, 26, then got involved in the conversation, although she didn’t seem to be taking it too seriously.
She added: ‘@tyleroakley @pointlessblog I love this. People will forever believe we actually dated. Does that mean I can call you an ex?’
Tyler, 27, joked back: ‘i’m your one that got away™.’
Lolz. Glad to hear everything’s good between you two, Alfie.
