Watch: Dove Cameron & Thomas Doherty Break Up After 4 Years

Dove Cameron and Thomas Doherty have called it quits. 

The actress confirmed on social media on Friday, Dec. 11 that the pair had broken up in October after four years of dating. 

"hi all," she tweeted. "In October, @thomasadoherty and I decided to part ways. The decision was incredibly difficult, but we still have love for each other, and will remain friends. Thank you for allowing us our privacy in this time."

The 24-year-old Liv and Maddie alum also posted about the split on her Instagram Story on Friday, where she acknowledged that there had been public speculation that the relationship was over.

"We know there have been some rumors and confusion lately about the status of our relationship and we wanted to set the record straight," she wrote. 

Thomas, who will soon be seen on the upcoming Gossip Girl reboot, has yet to post about the breakup. 

They started dating in December 2016 after connecting while co-starring in the Disney Channel film Descendants 2, which premiered in July 2017.

In February 2020, Dove told E! News that the 25-year-old Scottish actor had quickly declared his love for her shortly after she and ex Ryan McCartan called off their engagement in 2016.

"At the time I had just broken up with my fiancé—for truly, completely unrelated reasons—and I was like, ‘This is not going to end well, even if I am interested in this guy in any sort of real way. This not the time for this.' And so, I avoided him like the plague," she said. "I really tried to fight it and it was him who did not try to fight it. And he told me…one of our first conversations, he told me he was falling in love with me."
