There's been speculation for weeks now that the pair called it quits, but there wasn't enough evidence to really pinpoint the split. The pair hasn't been spotted together in real life or on social media, which is a place they loved to display their affection for each other.
Back at the beginning of January, it seemed like Katya and Austin were still going strong. She acted like a supportive girlfriend and posted a photo on Instagram of his new EP. Katya captioned the pic, "ITS LIT!!!!!!!!!!!???????❤❤❤❤ @austinmahone ??Download it on iTunes now! New favorite songs to workout to eat to breathe to sleep to… etc ?????."
Oddly, the photo has since been deleted from her Instagram page. Yikes! The Instagram model still does have a few shots with her former bae but those date back to a long time ago.
So what really happened here? No one is exactly sure, but Austin confirmed the news while chatting with Mario Lopez on Extra.
Mario asked about his social life and if he has time for a girlfriend or if there was anyone special he was seeing. Of course, hinting at his questionable relationship with Katya that fans have been wondering about.
Austin responded, "Um, no, I mean I'm just chilling. I'm doing my thing, I'm single."

This is not chill at all! We have a feeling fans are going to be super confused about why he treated this so normally. Of course, there must be a good reason. It's possible that he and Katya broke up a long time ago and so the news isn't as big or shocking to him.
However, there's something to say about this whole thing, though. The fact that the duo kept it private and under the radar of fans and the media might mean the feelings were mutual and there's no bad blood between the two. Hopefully, we get some answers soon. Until then, we're just going to chalk this up to good people growing up and going their separate ways.
