Olympic freeskier Gus Kenworthy and his boyfriend Matthew Wilkas have split after nearly four years.
“Gus and Matt are taking time apart,” a rep for the couple told People. “They love and support each other and remain close friends.”
According to Page Six, a source reveals that the couple “drifted apart.” They reportedly split right before the Fourth of July. Page Six also reports that Wilkas has already been seen on Grindr.
Kenworthy, 27, and Wilkas, 41, met on Instagram in 2015 and began dating in November 2015. The couple made history when cameras caught them kissing at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea in 2014. It was the first gay kiss involving an Olympian to be televised.
They shared Birdie, a Jindo/Labrador mix, who they saved from a dog meat farm in South Korea.

Happy #NationalComingOutDay everybody! That doesn’t mean that today is intended to pressure anybody to come out before they’re ready. Instead today is a gentle reminder to us all to live our lives honestly and authentically and not allow anybody else’s expectations to force us into silence. Coming out is an extremely personal journey that each person should do on their own time when they feel ready, safe and comfortable. There is no “right” way nor a right time to come out. It’s all up to you! If you happen to be struggling in the closet then I hope today can be a beacon of hope for you. Click the hashtag to see and read stories of others who have walked the same trail that you’re maybe now just finding yourself embarking on. Sometimes it can feel like a tough path to walk but I promise it will be worth it in the end. There is no feeling more liberating, fulfilling or freeing than accepting and acknowledging who you are and then sharing your true self with the world. We all deserve to live our lives authentically and unabashedly. When you live your truth, unafraid and unapologetically, you make it easier for someone else to do so. Representation is how we break down barriers, combat discrimination, and make positive change in the world. Although you may feel alone in the closet there is a community out there that sees you, hears you and not only accepts you but is actually waiting with open arms to embrace you. Good luck! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
