  • Folks now are wondering about Ryan's location after seeing his latest Instagram.

Ryan Seacrest and his longtime girlfriend, Shayna Taylor, are no longer a couple.

The 28-year-old chef and 45-year-old Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host had been on-and-off dating since 2013. A spokesperson for the TV and radio personality confirmed their split in a statement to PEOPLE via his spokesperson.

"Ryan and Shayna decided to end their romantic relationship amicably some time ago," the statement read. "They remain good friends, each other's biggest supporters and will always cherish their time together as a couple."

As news spread that Ryan and Shayna had parted ways, a few of Ryan's Instagram followers began commenting about the break up on his latest post of himself and Live co-star Kelly Ripa, which was shared over the weekend.

But moreover, many seemed confused by the photo, since the two morning show stars have reportedly been filming Live with Kelly and Ryan remotely (Kelly from the Caribbean and New York and Ryan from Los Angeles) amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Many wondered if this meant the two had met up in a tropical location and reunited in person.

"Are you with Kelly?" one fan asked. "Back together again hurray!" another said. "Did you cut all your hair off?" another inquired. A different fan wrote, "Why did u leave new York [sic] it has been good to u guys."

Safe to say though, the picture is a throwback, as evidenced by Ryan's caption: "Back when oversized sunglasses were a trend that I couldn't pull off. #SunglassesDay."

Meanwhile on Shayna's Instagram, the influencer has yet to comment directly about her break up. She did, however, post a selfie of herself on Monday.

"As we approach the full moon in Cancer this week, I’m feeling like even more of a homebody than I already was," her caption reads. "I know many of us will feel reminiscent, sensitive and connected with family in this time and I encourage you to tap into your emotions and intuition and let it guide you .✨"

In 2019, Shayna told Good Housekeeping the story of how she met Ryan when she was 21 and dining at an L.A. restaurant with a bunch of her friends.

"I guess he really wanted to talk to me and one of his friends he was sitting with happened to know someone in my group so they were texting to see if I came with anyone in the group, because he was trying to figure out if I was with a guy," Shayna revealed.

She later added: "His friends come over and basically sit me in an interview chair and start asking me all these questions to be funny and he came over and took my hairband off my wrist as an intro point, like eighth grade. It's now this funny thing we laugh about when he takes my hairband, it's like we reminisce."
