Did Tabitha Swatosh and Michael Sanzone break up? Not so fast...
Rumors began swirling that trouble was in the air for Tabs and Michael in October 2023. On Tuesday, Oct. 10, 2023, Tabitha posted a video of her mouthing the lyrics to Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know” featuring Kimbra, covered by KissSounds. The song — which ruled the entire summer of 2012 — is a breakup anthem and has painful lyrics, such as the one Tabs uttered in her post.
“Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over,” Tabs mouths on camera. “But had me believing it was always something that I'd done.”
One day after Tabitha posted her TikTok, Michael took to his account and shared the same part of the Gotye song, looked at the camera, and said “OK,” during the “screwed me over” portion of the song. He then seemingly took offense to the “had me believing it was always something that I'd done,” suggesting that he didn’t do anything to start the couple’s alleged problems.
Once Tabitha and Michael shared their posts, several fans begged the couple to confirm they hadn’t joined other influencer couples in Splitsville. Underneath both of their videos, they received many “say it ain’t so” remarks from fans.
“If they broke up I don't believe in love anymore,” one user wrote on Tabs’ post.
“SAY SIKE RIGHT NOW I SWEAR,” another told the YouTuber.
“I literally just saw Tabs' video…what is happening 😭,” a fan asked Michael on his TikTok.
Fortunately, fans didn’t have to wait too long for Tabitha and Michael to address their breakup suspicions. On Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2023, Tabs shared a TikTok of herself trying the “red nail theory,” a trend that had been popularized on TikTok. In her video, Tabitha explained she heard that red nails “reel men in” and decided to try it on her “boyfriend.”
After sharing her trip to the salon, Tabitha shared a clip of her showing off her nails to her boyfriend, Michael. As Tabitha had previously said in the video, Michael doesn’t like red nails and scoffed when he saw them on his girlfriend’s hand. While the red nail theory was a fail, the adorable video proved Tabitha and Michael are still going strong, much to their supporters’ amusement, though many suggested Michael’s disgust for Tabitha’s nails was a “red flag.”
