Alongside a racy photo of the pair together, Megan wrote: ‘It’s this girl’s birthday today. I met her on a TV show last year. Originally I wanted to date her. I tried for a long time’. 

She went on: ‘Eventually I gained something much better – a best friend. She’s one of the most loving, strong, spiritual, intelligent and hilarious women I know.’

‘Thank you @eloratahiti for being exactly who you are, and sharing that with the world and with me. I love you and your ass to bits,’ the blonde concluded.

Jake took to his Instagram to make the announcement, writing: ‘Megan and I are sadly taking a break from our relationship together and words will never express the heartbreak I’m feeling right now,’ he wrote. 

Despite the split, the beauty and her ex, Jake, 31, were spotted together multiple times in September, including holding hands at a Gold Coast nightclub.   

Megan defended their outing in an Instagram post explaining to fans that they are simply trying to be ‘mature’ about it all.

A whirlwind romance, which was heavily documented on social media, ensued, before ending abruptly in March 2017.
