It’s finally official everyone: NFL wide receiver Danny Amendola and his smokin’ hot WAG, model Olivia Culpo, have called it quits after a two-year relationship.

Many fans believed that this breakup was just a rumor, as the couple had been pictured together earlier in March on Instagram, vacationing in the Bahamas.  They were holding each other with a backdrop of tropical water, and looked hopelessly in love!

Yet, as pointed out by Barstool Sports Chicks in the OfficeAmendola seemed to have unfollowed Culpo on social media and even deleted all of their pictures together! While Culpo still has a few photos of the couple floating around the ‘Gram, you won’t be able to find any of them on Danny’s page!

So in today’s digital world, the “unfollow” is usually an indicator of a real-world split, but you can know for sure.  Fortunately for us fans, US Weekly did some hard-hitting journalism, digging further into these celebrities lives.  Their ‘source’ confirmed that the couple did indeed recently split, even said that they “definitely broke up.”

“It had to do with the distance and them barely seeing each other.”

But we thought the age-old adage was that ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder?’ Instead, it seems like the celeb power couple was “out of sight, out of mind.”

For NFL star Danny Amendola, this wasn’t his only breakup in the past few weeks.  After spending the last five seasons with the New England Patriots, the 32-year-old receiver took his talents to South Florida in the offseason, signing a two-year deal with the Dolphins. According to US Weekly’s source, this was another reason for their breakup, in that Culpo didn’t want to move to Miami.

Unlike his secret split with Culpo though, Amendola’s split with the Patriots was a little more amicable.  Even his BFF and butt-buddy, quarterback Tom Brady, took to Instagram to wish his little-bro luck.

In just a few weeks – one romance and one bromance – both ended!

On the other hand, the former Miss Universe 2012 winner seems to be dealing with the heartbreak a little but differently.  The 25-year-old Culpo was recently spotted in Vegas rocking some sexy swimwear.  How could she be move-on so soon?

Well, it turns out she was in Sin City to promote the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue (where Culpo’s photos never sat well with Amendola). But it still seems that Olivia needed a Vegas trip distraction to get her mind off of her ex-boy toy.

With her pregnant sister, Aurora Culpo, and actress friend, Cara Santana, the BFF’s seemed to be having the time of their lives on the strip.  Even Cara posted a video of the three beauties out on the town, captioning it “Operation: Surprise Vegas Girl’s Night Complete.”  Okay, so maybe Olivia was drowning her relationship woes with frozen margaritas!

Unfortunately for everyone, it’s the end of an era; Amendola and Culpo are no more. But let us remember them as they fell into each other’s arms after New England’s epic 2017 Super Bowl victory; not as they failed as a celeb couple.
