Gus Kenworthy and Matt Wilkas have split

Gus Kenworthy has split from his partner of four years Matt Wilkas, a rep for Gus has confirmed.

The Olympic icon and the actor met on Instagram in November 2015, after Gus slid into Matt’s DMs.

The split was confirmed to People magazine.

‘They love and support each other’

‘Gus and Matt are taking time apart,’ a rep for Gus told the publication.

They then added: ‘They love and support each other and remain close friends.’

The guys last featured on each other’s Instagrams around a month ago.

In early June, the guys completed the AIDS Life Cycle, covering 545 miles from San Francisco to Los Angeles over seven days.

On their meeting on the photo-sharing app, Gus told the publication in 2018: ‘I’ve met actually a lot of other couples that have met on Instagram … I think it’s kind of commonplace.’

‘It’s almost like a dating app,’ Gus then added. ‘Because you get a sense of someone. Their personality. What they do. Who they are, what they look like, whatever. And so it makes it easy to kind of establish a connection early on.’
