On March 5, 2024, Eva took to TikTok to announce that she and her boyfriend broke up after dating for one and a half years. While Evans didn’t address the details of their relationship or her boyfriend’s name, she mentioned that their chemistry was cute at first but turned out ugly at the end and mentioned being “treated like garbage.”

According to her other TikTok videos, her boyfriend cheated, and she dissed him with a video titled “He did lol,” referencing what she would do if her beau cheated on her.

It’s not the first time she had to deal with relationship issues. On February 22, 2024, she shared her ‘most destructive relationship’ with her pathologically lying high school boyfriend.

As mentioned, Eva’s then-beau faked many things, including heroin addiction, epilepsy, ODS, and brain tumor. Also, he lied that he had a college scholarship for hockey- funnily, he pretended to be a hockey coach and emailed her.

Moreover, Evans’ ex-boyfriend told fake stories about his childhood struggle so that he could get love and sympathy from her.
