Gus Kenworthy and Matt Wilkas are reportedly 'taking time apart'.

The Olympian and actor met via Instagram back in 2015 but now it appears the couple have ended their relationship on good terms.

A rep for Wilkas told People magazine, “Gus and Matt are taking time apart.” Adding, “They love and support each other and remain close friends.”

The couple saved the dog from a South Korean meat farm in Pyeongchang during the Winter Olympics.

The couple adopted the dog, named her Beemo and set up her own social media accounts. 

However, the pup suffered from health complications. Beemo's heart was too big for her body, leading her lungs to deteriorate. 

The couple only spotted the defect when they took her to the vets because she had stopped eating. And in May 26, Kenworthy revealed the pup had died. 

But they both promised to get tattoos to remember their dog forever and during their stay in London over New Year’s, the couple immortalised Beemo on their skin.
