Self-Proclaimed Instagram Model Breaks up with Boyfriend with Fear of Losing Her FollowersJuly 24, 2019 12:40
People are finding weird reasons to break up. A self-proclaimed Instagram model with a following of 450,000 decided to part ways with her boyfriend who wanted to post his pictures on photo-sharing platform.
The 22-year-old woman who users IGAZmodel as her Insta account wrote on Reddit that she has a "pretty successful Instagram account" and sharing pictures with her boyfriend would affect her followers engagement resulting in losing money.
The model split with her boyfriend while holidaying with him in Mexico after he insisted to be part of her social media photos. "We can take as many private pics as he likes, we can do pics of us hiking, having sex, laying by the pool, I don't care but I need to keep my (Instagram) separate," she wrote on Reddit.
The girl, who hasn't revealed her identity so far, revealed that while holidaying in Mexico, her boyfriend started asking questions why she refrains from posting pictures of the couple together, Fox News reported on Monday.
Citing reasons involving lowered post engagements and losing on sponsored posts, she tried explaining this to her boyfriend whose name and age also remain undisclosed. "It's just a fact. I need these pics from this vacation to be able to sell stuff. It's just the way my 'job' works," she wrote on Reddit. "I'm really upset because I paid for this entire vacation only to be ignored and treated pretty crappy," she added.
She later updated her post to state again she had not heard from her boyfriend following the break up - and thanked Reddit for giving her support to be "totally fine with that". A Reddit user said: "you're going to make more money when he is not in the photos with you. That should be enough of an explanation for him to understand the situation and the fact that he is getting angry about it is very worrying and is a bit of a red flag for me".
Some users even asked the model to create a separate, private Instagram account.
