However, social media snoops noticed that the engaged couple stopped posting Sunday morning videos together. In fact, Gunn removed a lot of photos of her fiance from her Instagram.

Furthermore, she put up a cryptic post that ““All that glitters is not gold.” Maurissa was also not sporting her engagement ring on recent Instagram Stories videos.

The speculation was further fueled by Riley making his own cryptic social media posts.

However, neither have broken their silence about the split rumors. Until now. Are they still together?
