The couple split earlier this year

In January 2020, Giovanni confirmed that the couple had ended their relationship with a statement on social media. It read: "Ash and I have made the decision to separate as a couple. We remain friends and wish each other well for the future."

While the former couple claimed to "remain friends", they both removed all photos of each other on their respective Instagram accounts.
