Dove Cameron’s Ex Ryan McCartan Accuses Her Of Cheating While They Were Engaged
Uh-oh. Dove Cameron is making her comeback to music and seems to be thriving, but her ex-fiance Ryan McCartan may have just re-opened an old wound. The two Liv and Maddie stars began dating in 2013, announced their engagement in 2016, but were broken up within six months.
Soon after their split, Dove was publicly dating her now-boyfriend, Thomas Doherty, whom she met on the set of Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants 2, which premiered in 2017.
But a couple months after Ryan and Dove’s breakup went public, Dove claimed that Ryan “was terrible” to her in an Instagram comment. He clapped back, saying, “Take the high road, there’s less traffic.”
In 2019, she opened up to Seventeen magazine about their relationship, saying, “A lot of what I went through in that first relationship, the very low-lows, I did not make public … I was under the impression that I had to make everything look perfect all the time and my partner definitely put that in my ear. People thought I was sharing loads, but I hardly shared anything.”
Now, Ryan’s the one spilling the tea about what he says *really* went down with their breakup.
During an Instagram Q&A, he was asked: “what’s your proudest moment.”
“Within two weeks, my fiancee cheated on and left me, I almost died from food poisoning, and Donald Trump was elected president. I truly didn’t think I would be able to make it through that part of my life. I’m proudest of the light that came from that darkness, and my ability to survive and turn the anger and sadness I had into positive life changes and a new way forward,” he responded.
For what it’s worth, Dove’s first photo with Thomas posted on her Instagram was within a month of her breakup announcement with Ryan, though the two weren’t confirmed dating until the next year. The photo did, however, almost immediately stir rumors of the two’s romance.
Dove hasn’t responded to the cheating rumors yet, but considering she is usually pretty open with her fans about her personal life, she probably will.
