BREAKING CELEBRITY RELATIONSHIP NEWS:
Matt Roloff and Caryn Chandler have either broken up...
... or the couple is about to get engaged.
Confused? Allow us to explain why one of these contrasting possibilities seems very likely at the moment:
According to Radar Online, Chandler has been let go from her position as the manager at Roloff Farms.
She no longer holds this important job, which she took on over a decade ago and which is the way she met her eventually boyfriend, Matt Roloff.
(It's also why tension has been pretty high between Caryn and Amy Roloff for awhile now; it's always been awkward when an acquaintance starts dating your ex-husband.)
On a recent episode of Little People, Big World, Matt went into detail over just how integral Caryn is to the business he's co-owned for years and years now.
“Caryn is instrumental in running pumpkin season, she’s run it for 10 years,” he said on air, adding:
“She tries to get Amy as involved as she can. There was awkwardness a little bit, but we’re all kind of finding our way.”
Roloff went on to say at this time:
"I enjoy her immensely. Whether we’re working or whether we’re relaxing, we have a great time together."
That's been evident for over a year, since the two started dating, which is why this development has taken us by surprise.
It could mean that Matt and Caryn have broken up.
If this is the case, it would obviously make sense for Chandler to stop working at the farm, considering there would be tension going forward between her and Amy AND her and Matt.
But what if this means the opposite?
What if Matt and Caryn are engaged, as some rumors have suggested, and they've decided to fully separate their personal lives from their professional lives in response?
We reported last week that Matt Roloff had seemingly purchased a home away from the farm.
After telling TLC viewers this season that things had to change because it was just too strange to live within 1,000 feet of Amy, Matt hinted on social media that he's made the decision to get a new place.
This, in our opinion, would point to Matt and Caryn taking another step in their romance; be it an engagement or just a living-together situation.
Here's one final thing to consider, however:
Radar Online also says Matt does not follow Chandler on Instagram.
Did he ever, though?
We can't say at this time.
We do know, though, that Matt is a prolific poster on this platform, so it does make us go back and wonder if the relationship is over.
It may sound crazy, but in this day and age, not following one's significant other on social media is a pretty big deal...and often a telling one.
We'll talk to our Little People, Big World sources and see what we can dig up on the status of Matt and Caryn.
Stay tuned, folks. There's clearly some kind of news to break here...
