Iggy Azalea used Twitter as her platform to shut down rumors about the end of her celebrity relationship with NBA player Nick Young. The celebrity couple had gotten engaged in June 2015, but, as UsMagazine.com reports, an alleged cheating scandal exposed by Young’s NBA teammate D’Angelo Russell earlier this year has driven them apart. Recently, pictures of the L.A. home Azalea lives in have shown a car being towed and locks being changed. On Twitter, Azalea made it clear that she was not behind this, saying, “I never had anyone’s car towed nor did I kick nick out of ‘my’ house. The home belongs to nick, I am the one moving. Thanks.”

This celebrity news has us holding our breath a bit. What are three ways to completely detach yourself from your ex?

Cupid’s Advice:

After a messy split, two people want nothing to do with each other. The most important thing to do after getting out of a long relationship is to distance yourself from the other person. Detaching yourself from your ex may be difficult, but it’s necessary. Cupid has some tips:

1. Social media detox: In this day and age, you can do everything to cut ties with an ex, but if you don’t remove them on social media, they’ll be popping up forever. Delete traces of the relationship from your own pages and unfriend them on all of your accounts.

2. Cut off communication: If you’re finding yourself wanting to text your ex, take the extra step to delete the contact in your phone. If you don’t have your ex’s number, you can’t contact them–simple, yet effective. Then if they contact you at some point, you’ll seem totally over it when you reply, “Who’s this?”

3. Material things: Whether you live in your ex’s house or have photos and gifts all over your apartment, make a change. If you lived together you’ll definitely have to move out, and if you live on your own, take some time to find things from your ex and clean them out of your space. If you’re a very sentimental person and can’t bear to throw the items away, at least pack up the gifts and photos into a box and stow them away. Out of sight, out of mind.
