Was their plan to move in together the downfall of beloved Bachelor in Paradise couple Maurissa Gunn and Riley Christian?

Maurissa appeared to hint as much in a recent Instagram post that she liked.

“Move in together. It speeds up the breakup process,” the post read.

Although neither Maurissa or Riley have officially commented on their relationship status, the two have been dropping hints for weeks that there’s trouble in paradise.

Maurissa and Riley made history on Bachelor in Paradise

After becoming the first black couple to get engaged on one of the Bachelor shows in the franchise history, Maurissa and Riley cemented their place as fan favorites.

The two quickly began planning Maurissa’s move from Atlanta to New York to be with Riley, as well as future family and wedding plans. They spent time with each other’s families and Maurissa flew out several times to see Riley.

The two were pictured together as recently as December 25th, sporting matching pajamas in a Christmas post.

“Christmas with you is the best,” Maurissa commented.

“@maurissagun 1st of many,” Riley answered.

Social media sweeps and quotes hint at a breakup

However, shortly after the new year began, Maurissa deleted photos of the pair and shared cryptic quotes. The two haven’t been seen together since Maurissa left New York on December 30th.

Maurissa initially left their People magazine spread and several Bachelor in Paradise shots, but has since deleted all but one photo of the two on their first date in Bachelor in Paradise. She also is rumored to have recently updated her Facebook status to “single.”

However, most fans agreed that a reunion seemed unlikely after Maurissa’s recent Instagram activity.

Riley hasn’t removed his photos of Maurissa, but did recently like a Tweet stating “the people who swear they solid be the quickest to fold.”
