According to a source, it’s all over between Post Malone and longtime girlfriend Ashlen Diaz, with the insider telling Us Weekly that the couple called it quits about “a month or two ago.”
According to Us Weekly, however, there appears to be some difference of opinion as to who broke up with whom; one source claimed that Diaz broke up with Malone, while a different source described the split as mutual, adding that Malone has been hard at work recording a new album in Utah.
Diaz, 22, and Malone, 23, began dating before Malone skyrocketed to success, and the source implied that she may not have been prepared for the rapper’s meteoric rise and rock-star lifestyle.
“Ashlen booked Post a show in Dallas before he was big and knew what she was getting herself into,” the source added. “Post loves Ashlen and cares about her but lives his life as though he’s a rock star. He’s still so young.”
Diaz, the source continued, has been “pretty upset about their breakup,” and has referenced the relationship drama in Instagram posts that she has since deleted.
Back in 2015, the “beerbongs & bentleys” rapper shared a photo of himself and Diaz on Instagram, shortly after they began dating.
In a 2016 interview with “The Breakfast Club”, Malone — whose real name is Austin Richard Post — admitted that his rapid success was not exactly conducive to maintaining a relationship.
“It’s tough having a balance, between dedicating my life to music and dedicating time for Ashlen,” he said. “It’s tough because you want to get into the studio, you want to do as good music as you can, sometimes you’re real busy.” Watch:
