Why did the Pink Shirt Couple break up?

In a TikTok dated Feb. 4, 2024, Cayda and Alyssa, aka the Pink Shirt Couple, sat down together to explain to their millions of followers that the rumors are true: They decided to break up.

"We did break up as a couple," the still-pink-shirt-clad Cayda said. "We're still really close as friends and care very deeply about each other."

The seemingly sad duo then embraced, with Alyssa going on to explain that she moved out — and that her ex recently got into a car accident, which explains his bruised eye in the video.

As for why they are going in different directions now, Cayda said that he wasn't putting as much into their content, and essentially took advantage of Alyssa, allowing her to do more work.

He went on to say it'll be "a good thing for me to take my own path."

Fans wonder if the Pink Shirt Couple breakup is a joke.

A lengthier explanation of the breakup is posted on YouTube, where Cayda acknowledged that fans had already guessed the two were headed for a split given his absence on the channel of late.

Still, some fans wondered if the breakup is just a joke, or a stunt to get more follows. But others pointed out that since Cayda got super emotional at one point in the video, the breakup does seem to be the real thing.

In fact, it even seems like the Pink Shirt Couple is trying to do the right thing, even in an era when what you see on social media isn't always real.

"We could've just kept making content together and kept pretending, and kept doing that, but that's lying to you guys and that's not right, because we don't want to lie to you guys," they said.

Fans responded well to the breakup news overall, with one commenting to the YouTube video, "I love how they are mature enough to sit next to each other and talk about it together after their breakup."

But someone else said they wished the split was just a prank! Many were destroyed by the news, with one saying, "Pretty upsetting to hear, since I’ve been watching y’all since you had 50,000 followers."

Other followers admitted to crying over the news. But in the end, it seems that the couple will walk away not only with one another's respect, but with that of the many people who have enjoyed following their content and journey.
