Amber Rose and 21 Savage are officially over.

Though it took a minute for the couple to confirm they were dating, Amber and 21 quickly reached “relationship goals” status after a series of intimate outings, publicized romantic gestures, and interview after interview in which they expressed their fondness for one another. Naturally, some fans questioned the authenticity of the couple’s connection, but as the months passed, it became increasingly clear that it was true love.

21 began to shelve his hardened persona and slowly embraced his softer side, going above and beyond to demonstrate his affection. The man reportedly cut off his dreads for Amber, serenaded her with Alicia Keys’ records, and made beneficial lifestyle changes at his girlfriend’s request.

“She's a real cool woman. She treats me like a king, you know. It is what it is,” he said during a 2017 interview on the Real 92.3 LA. “[She] makes me do shit that I don't normally do, like take vitamins and drink water.”

He DGAF what the skeptics or haters had to say; 21 was head over heels. And the feelings appeared to be mutual.

In light of the couple’s recent breakup, we’re taking a look back at some of the most memorable moments of their relationship. Who knows? It may give fans some hope for reconciliation.

Like a lot of couples, Amber and 21 liked to spoil each other with the occasional gift. But unlike most couples, they had disposable incomes to go all out.

At the end of July 2017, the two hit up social media to show off the iced-out timepieces they had purchased for each other.

“Let's talk about how much in love I am, how happy I am,” she told the cameraman. “I just got back from Atlanta. I'm in love, I'm happy […] I wanna marry him, but we'll see.”

You know what they say: Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

“You know Big Boy, to be in a relationship, in general, is very difficult. To be famous and in a relationship is even more difficult,” she said around the 12:12 mark. “I love him. I really love him. I miss him. I think about him every day.”

Though Amber said she technically is technically single, she doesn’t want to take on the label because she still has strong feelings for 21.

“I can't say that I'm single because in my heart I still love him, so for me to say that I'm single means I want to go out and find something else—like I'm ready to mingle and I'm not,” she explained. “My heart is still with him, so you know. Hopefully, we can work it out, but if we can't, the love is still there, so you know, we'll hopefully be able to be friends.”
