Once upon a time, Dove Cameron and Ryan McCartan were the ultimate Disney Channel power couple. But fans of the Liv and Maddie stars know that things weren’t exactly pretty when it ended, so why don’t we go back and investigate what really went down between them? But before we get into their long and complicated timeline, let us refresh your memory…
The two stars played the on-screen couple of Maddie and Diggie on Liv and Maddie, and fans immediately fell for the pair — because, well, their chemistry was undeniable on screen. And when the costars feel for each other in real life, it was seriously a dream come true. They were pretty much couples goals while they were together — they formed a band together, The Girl and the Dreamcatcher, and they even got engaged! So yes, we were all mentally preparing for the Disney wedding of our dreams.
But sadly, after almost three whole years together, the Descendants star and the Wicked actor unfortunately split. And well, things have been a bit dramatic since then. Dove claimed Ryan had treated her badly during their relationship, and he accused the actress of cheating on him with her current boyfriend, Thomas Doherty. After years of accusations and drama they’ve each finally moved on from the split, but we just had to take a trip down memory lane.
