Riley Christian and Maurissa Gunn, one of Bachelor in Paradise fans’ favorite couples, appear to have split up. Social media activity has swayed dangerously close to rumors of a breakup after the two spent the holidays together, especially since Maurissa deleted many photos from her Instagram that featured Riley.

It is unclear at this time if the fan-favorite couple have split, but Maurissa posting photos without her engagement ring certainly did not help dispel any fears.

“Maurissa deleting her pics with Riley is just… like that was my fav couple,” one Instagram user commented. Another fan wrote that “Riley and Maurissa breaking up is almost the death of me.”

Maurissa Gunn, 25, may just be doing some Instagram spring cleaning as the new year rolls in, but the fact that so many of the photos featured Riley Christian, 35, is not a good sight. Riley has also not posted a photo of the couple together since Dec. 28 after spending the holidays together.

Fans clamoring for information as to what happened to the BIP couple may just be overreacting, but recently posted tweets also show signs of trouble in paradise.

“Try not [to] be stagnant when facing obstacles that are beyond your control,” Riley posted on Thursday. “Just do what you can. That way, when things finally do fall into place, you’ll be able to hit the ground running.”

He also quote-tweeted a post that read, “If it compromises your mental health or happiness don’t be afraid to walk away!”

Riley has yet to comment or acknowledge any sort of breakup, with Maurissa Gunn continuing on as usual as well. Most recently, she posted a solo selfie with the caption, “don’t worry be happy” and an image that read, “All that glitters is not gold.”

Their split would be the last straw for some Bachelor in Paradise fans however, who commented online that, “If Maurissa and Riley broke up I have no hope in anymore Bach couples!!”

“Who knew the first couple from paradise this year to break up was gonna be Riley and Maurissa?” another fan wrote about the rumors. “I feel like they were everyone’s number one.”

Riley and Maurissa were one of five successful couples this past summer on Bachelor in Paradise, and among the few pairs who also got engaged during the finale.

Joe Amabile, a.k.a. “Grocery Store Joe,” proposed to Serena Pitt, and Kenny Braasch proposed to Mari Pepin. Also leaving the beach as a couple were former Bachelorette Becca Kufrin and Thomas Jacobs, as well as contestants Abigail Heringer and Noah Erb.

All five couple have remained together since the finale, which would make Riley and Maurissa’s rumored breakup the first split of the latest BIP season, if confirmed true.

“Maurissa, I love you,” Riley Christian said in the finale as he proposed. “And I’ve loved you since our very first date. I just need to be sure. That said, will you marry me?”

At the time, Maurissa enthusiastically accepted.

“I had no idea who he was before he came down the beach because I didn’t watch his season. So, the conversation that we had right away, within two minutes, we had so much in common. We just clicked,” Maurissa told Glamour after the finale. “So, I was like, I know this is going to be a good one. And then after the date everything was smooth sailing from there.”

“Next I need to get to New York because I’m still living in Atlanta, then wedding,” she continued. “We got a wedding to plan and then babies.”

“Yeah,” Riley added at the time, “wedding, babies, families, friends, all of this good stuff.”
