"There's a little story behind the entire song," she began. "Right before the studio, I had dropped off my ex boyfriend at the time er... my boyfriend at the time... and I dropped him off at his house."
Her quick correction on the "ex boyfriend" part -- with the person in question never being named -- led fans to speculate on the current status of the on-again/off-again TikTok power couple.
"this is such a weird way to announce a break up," read one comment on Instagram, as another fan posted, "WOW SHE JUST SAID BRYCE WAS HER EX LIKE DID I MISS AN EPISODE."
The fervor over the new interview follows weeks of fan speculation about the couple. Meanwhile, on Tuesday soon after the Lowe chat a source told E! the two had called it quits again.

"Disappointed but not surprised," read the now deleted tweet the influencer wrote on Feb. 27.
Shortly after Addison tweeted, "Figures."
Around the same time, Bryce said the couple were as strong as ever, with a video collaboration between the pair coming soon.
"Everything's fine," he told reporters outside Saddle Ranch in Los Angeles. "I don't know why everybody overreacts, but until we do our own thing or say anything -- I don't know, I feel like everyone's overreacting about stupid s---."
The "it" couple were first linked after sharing a TikTok on Oct. 7, 2019, but Bryce said they were "just friends" in the comments. Even after a "double date" TikTok with Charli D’Amelio and Chase Hudson months later, the pair denied they were in a relationship.
Stans of the two stars were put in a tailspin once more, when Bryce said he would "date" Addison "again" in an April 2020 Instagram.
