Many fans actually assumed that the announcement was an April Fools Day joke, since it was made on April 1. However, Ruby later clarified that it wasn’t. She said she wouldn’t joke about ‘something so personal’.

Ruby detailed that the two broke up months ago. This struck fans as odd, since Jessica shared a photo of the two on Instagram, on March 3rd.

“A mosquito, my libido,” she captioned it.

Ruby and Jessica met ten years ago, and were rumored to have an on-and-off relationship. They officially started dating in 2016, when they starred in a music video together.

Most fans remained convinced that the whole thing was an April Fools joke, regardless of what Ruby said. They primarily used the picture Jessica posted as proof.
