Speaking to OUT Magazine, Champa said: “With social media, it’s a bit complicated. Our relationship became a brand.

Going more into detail about why they chose to end their relationship, Champa brings up their nine-year age difference as one of the main factors.

“I think as you age, you kind of realize different things,” he said. “Then on top of it, the social media aspect of it and people constantly comparing ourselves to each other and the pressure of maintaining this image. It almost became, I would tell people, like a Black Mirror episode.”
