Netizens Suspect Show Luo And His Girlfriend Have Broken Up 'Cos They Haven’t Interacted On Social Media In 2 Months
Is it really true love if you’re not liking all your significant other’s posts?
Recently, Chinese netizens pointed out that Taiwanese singer Show Luo and his girlfriend, Chinese blogger Grace Chow, have stopped interacting with each other on social media for about two months now. Although they were never quite at the level of, say, Jay Chou and Hannah Quinlivan when it comes to online PDA, the couple has gradually become more open about their long-term relationship in recent years, so this sudden virtual “cold war” is being taken by some as a sign that they have broken up.
Netizens speculate that things may have started going downhill some time after January 22, which is the last day Grace updated her Instagram before going radio silent throughout the entire month of February — an unusually long time for an influencer with 1.5 million followers on the platform.
The 31-year-old finally returned to Instagram with a new post on March 1 and has continued to share updates quite regularly since then, but the absence of likes from each other on their newer pics has certainly not gone unnoticed. While it was business as usual on her Weibo, there appeared to be no sign of engagement from Show over there either.
Perhaps the most damning “evidence” that the two could have indeed gone their separate ways is in their online activity on Valentine’s Day — or in Grace’s case, the lack thereof. Show, on the other hand, uploaded a suspiciously unromantic and pensive-looking solo photo of himself (see below) on February 14 with this generic caption: “Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day.”
On the other hand, there were some fans who came to the couple’s defense, urging others not to read too much into things and hoping for the breakup rumours to turn out false. Some also reasoned that Show and Grace could be deliberately cutting down on unnecessary lovey-dovey behaviour during the COVID-19 outbreak to avoid being slammed by haters for being insensitive (which sounds completely plausible).
A representative from Show’s management agency issued a brief statement to the Taiwanese media in response to the rumours, saying, “We do not comment on our artiste’s personal affairs.”
Frankly speaking, that does not sound promising at all.
