Former Bachelorette Angie Kent has fans seriously suspicious after a flurry of bizarre Instagram activity over the weekend suggested she has split from boyfriend Carlin Sterritt.

The pair, who have been together since Angie chose Carlin at the conclusion of her Bachelorette season in 2019, first raised eyebrows when they were spotted unfollowing each other by fan Instagram account Bachie Funny on Sunday.

“Temporarily bringing this account out of hibernation to inform you love is f*cking dead,” a screenshot of the two notably not following each other online was captioned.

“These two have now unfollowed each other on Insta aka the millennial way of announcing ya breakup.”

Angie hits back at split rumours

In response, Angie took to the comments to warn fans to essentially back off, though she didn’t at any point deny the rumours.

“Everyone got their happy ending when the show was on,” she wrote. “Now it's no one's business. It's my real life. So best people stay out of it unless they know for real what someone is going through.”

The pair also hastened to refollow each other following the post, after Angie argued a system glitch had seen their accounts temporarily go their separate ways.

With no new material from either Angie or Carlin it remains to be seen if the (former?) lovebirds will be addressing the rumours any further.

The pair were last spotted on one another’s pages in May, and have since kept very quiet.

They aren’t the only stars of the franchise turning heads during the lockdown.

Bachelor to be, former Survivor contestant Locky Gilbert has found himself in a touch of trouble of late after he was spotted lurking in a former MAFS star’s Instagram live when he should have been shooting his love quest from the upcoming season.

He also shocked a number of his original Survivor fans when he was announced as this year’s Bachelor, as they wondered what had happened to his blossoming romance with former teammate Brooke Jowett.

Looks like Bachie love is in some serious strife.
