Why did Dove and Thomas break up?

Dove Cameron and Thomas Doherty ended their four-year relationship in December 2020, claiming that despite it being a difficult decision, they remain good friends.

Dove Cameron and Thomas Doherty’s romance was showcased for all of their fans to see during their four-year relationship, which started when they appeared on the Disney Channel together in 2017. The couple generated a large following that rooted for the longevity of their courtship, whilst also following the progression of their respective careers.

In 2020, fans noticed that both Dove and Thomas had rarely posted images of one another on their social media pages, which prompted breakup rumours. After months of speculation, Dove took to Twitter in December 2020 to confirm that they had broken up in October 2020.

She stated, “Hi all. In October, Thomas Doherty and I decided to part ways. The decision was incredibly difficult, but we still have love for each other and will remain friends. Thank you for allowing us our privacy in this time.” Since the announcement, Dove and Thomas have remained focused on their respective careers, and have yet to indicate whether they have moved on to new relationships.
