Blake Lively has shocked fans this morning by unfollowing Ryan Reynolds on instagram.

The 30-year-old actress mysteriously wiped her entire account clean of followers and photos, prompting the world to freak out that she had split with her famous hubby.

Before you yell, “That’s it! If Blake and Ryan are over, love is officially dead. Again,” do not panic. It’s promotion for a movie.

Not only did she upend her entire account, but the mother-of-two began following only people named ‘Emily Nelson’ (lucky them).

Her bio has also changed, mysteriously saying; “What happened to Emily?…”

Fans may have noticed a hint she gave on 30 April, when she posted a picture of a hangman game with the answer being the same as her bio above, before deleting everything.

So who is Emily Nelson??

Speculation is rife, but obviously, it has something to do with her new flick A Simple Favour – where Blake plays a character who goes missing named, you guessed it, Emily Nelson.

Of course anyone with that name has lost their collective minds.

Well played, Blake. Well played.
