It was in the summer of 2018 when cute AF pair Millie Bobby Brown and Jacob Sartorius broke up. The Stranger Things actress and the “Sweatshirt” singer both took to Instagram to confirm the news to their fans that they have gone their separate ways, but insisted that they still remain good friends. Check out the video above to see how it all went down.

“The decision with jacob and i was completely mutual. We are both happy and remaining friends ❤️,” Millie wrote on her IG story.

And Jacob posted a super similiar message. “The decision w mills was completely mutual & we are both happy and remaining friends ❤️,” he wrote. And now, it seems like they really meant it when they said they are genuinely friends. It was just Jacob’s 16th birthday and Millie took to her IG story to wish him a happy bday, sending Jacob all the love.

So it looks like there was nothing all that dramatic that went down between them after all! And Millie saying “love u” to Jacob doesn’t mean they’re back together. If anything, it just proves they were able to still have love and respect for each other as friends despite the fact that they’re not a couple anymore. The relationship just mutually ended, and there’s nothing wrong with that. With Millie and Jacob just being 14 and 16 years old, it’s understandable this might’ve not lasted forever. They’re so young and super busy with their careers, since Millie is currently filming Season 3 of her hit Netflix show and Jacob is performing and working on his music. And hey, who knows – maybe one day they will get back together, but for now, they’re totally happy being just friends.

The pair first sparked dating rumors back in the fall of 2017 when fans noticed the pair leaving each other comments on Instagram. And when it came time to ring in the new year, they spent that time together. Neither star ever really said when they officially became an item, but it seems like they were dating for quite some time. 

It’s interesting they did decide to let fans in on their decision to break up since Millie once wrote on her official Facebook page agreeing with a publication’s story that questioned why everyone was so fascinated with focusing on the love life of a 13-year-old girl, the age Millie was at the time her relationship with Jacob became public knowledge. So shoutout to Millie for letting the world in on this personal update since it’s not something that techically she should have to share with anyone besides those closest to her. They were really adorable together and we always have Jacob’s super sweet, very public, birthday message to Millie to look back on, right?

The memories. Never forget.
