Actors Keith Powers and Ryan Destiny have reportedly decided to part ways after four years of together, PEOPLE reported, quoting sources.
"They're taking time to focus on themselves and their emerging careers but are remaining close friends," the source told the outlet.
The duo first met at a Teen Vogue party in 2015. In a July 2019 We the Urban digital cover, the actors revealed that though they felt an instant attraction, sparks flew only once they connected over Instagram.
"For a minute we tried to hide it for numerous reasons, but as human beings sometimes you want to just shout to the world 'I love this person and I'm happy!'" the 27-year-old actor said about keeping their romance low-key.
"We try to find a balance. I'm already a private person and very career driven so reminding people that I am my own person is important."
Meanwhile, the 29-year-old Straight Outta Compton spoke about finding growth alongside Ryan.
"It is so important for our people to see healthy Black love. Whether it's a relationship, marriage or even friendships. Black love gives us hope. When you see Black love flourish, it's powerful," he said.
On the professional front, Powers will next be seen in two upcoming Netflix films. He will also be starring alongside Gabrielle Union in Perfect Find.
On the other hand, Destiny, who wrapped her hit show Star last year, will be seen in the upcoming indie film, Flint Strong.
