The origin of Kyle and Morgan's connection can be traced back to 2021 when Morgan's voice on the radio caught Kyle's attention.

Kyle confessed that it was Morgan's song "Wilder Days" playing on the radio that served as the catalyst for their meeting. Kyle was impressed, to say the least. Enthralled by Morgan's musical talent, Kyle slid into her DMs... but only as a friend.

The unexpected connection was solidified when Morgan, perhaps surprised to find a Beverly Hills resident had connected with her online, reached out to Kyle and messaged her too.

After that, it didn't take long for the two to meet, and become fast friends. During this season, we've seen the pair sitting on each other's laps, and being very playful. Heck, in Morgan's new track, "Fall in Love With Me," the two even shared a kiss, and a bath too!

While the duo has never officially confirmed or denied any romantic involvement, the removal of digital imprints raises questions about the authenticity of their bond. The decision to cleanse their online platforms of each other's existence is fueling rumors that the whole thing was made up or exaggerated to hype up the show.

On the social media scrub, one fan said, "Even their first picture together, the one that made headlines, is totally gone." Adding, "I mean the timing is just peculiar."

Even though it may look like the curtain has fallen on Kyle and Morgan's relationship, the public is still searching for clues that might explain what happened. Sure, some are speculating that the social media purge means that the whole thing was fake. But we aren't convinced. I mean who hasn't banished an ex off their socials after a nasty breakup?

We're just being silly! The reality is, that Kyle never confirmed that she had anything more than a friendship with Morgan, and in an interview with ET, the two explained that the near kissing from the music video, was a way to "troll the trolls."
