All-pervasive photo app Instagram has changed the way we do a whole bunch of things, like eating breakfast to watching fashion shows to… Announcing high-profile breakups.
At least that’s how Marc Jacobs and his porn star beau Harry Louis are using it anyway. Louis posted the visual confirmation of their split on Saturday, demonstrating excellent use of the breakup filter and explaining the apparently mutual decision thusly:
‘So I would like to be the first one to share with you all the news… Me and Marc have decided not carry on with our relationship as boyfriends… The distance and lack of time because of work schedules aren’t really something realistic, and he’s such a beautiful and amazing person, that I think he deserve a bf who will stay at least in one of the cities that he leaves in… Also, I need that too… We love each other very much, and that it was a decision from both!!!! Every special minute we’ve spent together will be treasured, and a new chapter of our both lives has started… Both of us focusing in work, and make it work!!!! So, for those who were always supportive of us, please don’t be sad, live goes on, to all of us… And for those who were praying that this day were coming, there you have… Marc Jacobs and Harry Louis aren’t officially a couple anymore!!!!’
Louis, who at 25 is half Jacobs’ age, was with the designer in Paris just three days prior to watch him say farewell to a different Louis. A breakup didn’t seem to be on the cards then, if Louis’ profusion of Instagrams in the vein of this one and this one are anything to go by.
The two had been officially dating since early last year but were first seen hanging around together in 2011.
