While most people try to keep their relationship drama away from prying eyes, Ariel Winter decided to take the opposite approach when she revealed her newfound single status over the weekend.
Following weeks of speculation, the Modern Family star used multiple forms of social media to confirm she and on-off boyfriend Laurent Gaudette have officially ended their two year relationship.
Using a Kim Kardashian gif captioned “I’m like dropping hints that I’m single”, the actress wrote on Twitter: “When you’re surprised that people just haven’t got it yet…”

She then posted a picture of her tweet to Instagram captioned “Hi there press people” – obviously suggesting the media had yet to cop her newly single status.
According to the Daily Mail, rumours of a break-up began to circulate after Ariel and Laurent unfollowed each other on social media and the teen star attended her prom alone.
In December Ariel also used a gif to announce she had split with Laurent, just two months after celebrating their two-year anniversary.
But by March the pair were definitely back on and just two months ago they attended Coachella as an item.
Ariel – who recently celebrated her high school graduation with a controversial pic – doesn’t seem to be too upset over her breakup as she took to Instagram yesterday to celebrate reaching 2 million followers with a picture of her in a bikini driving a boat.
We could certainly think of worse ways to get over a breakup.
