After weeks of speculation, the pair said that they needed to work out where they were at, but decided to part ways. 

‘We didn’t really know in our heads where we were at ourselves,’ Dom said, with the video titled Answering Your Question: Have We Broken Up?

‘Obviously we thought it was time to let you know that me and Tayla are no longer together.’

Tayla, 22, firmly insisted: ‘There is no story behind it, there’s no drama, we’re just [going in] in different paths and directions in our lives and we hope everyone can respect our privacy and respect that we’re still fine and still mates.’

Dom said that the last few weeks have been a ‘difficult time’ but the pair will still ‘support each other.’ 

They also asked fans to be ‘respectful of them and their decisions.’

Taking to Instagram, the brunette penned a lengthy post about ‘choosing yourself,’ saying she enjoys writing as a form of ‘therapy.’

‘In life we are constantly asked to make a decision, to make sacrifices, to chose between relationships, between work and between friendships,’ Tayla wrote.

‘The one thing we should never forget is that above all these we should be choosing ourselves.’

She then went on to say that choosing yourself in not a ‘weakness,’ but a ‘strength’.

‘Sometimes in life, you’ll find your heart putting a career, a person or a love first. The problem with this is if these aspirations, these loves, these people don’t put you first in return you will be left feeling empty,’ she wrote. 

Tayla then said that a relationship doesn’t ‘define you’ or ‘fully fulfil you’.

‘If life has taught me one thing it is that a person, job or relationship does not define you, it will not ever fully fulfil you,’ she added.

‘This must come from within. Happiness must come from within. Your mental health is more important than texting him back, going to that party, working that extra shift, fixing someone else’s mess. If taking care of yourself means you have to let people down, well then let’s let people down more often. Chose to stop focusing on others and focus on yourself for once!’
