It all started when Becky tweeted on Jan. 7, “Honestly I can’t be mad… I may have to tip my hat.” Hmm…what are you talking about Becky…or better yet WHOM are you talking about? Well, Austin seemed to take the hint because soon after he tweeted, “Don’t be sad that it’s over, be happy that it happened.” Do we sense a hint of sarcasm? But of course Becky had to have the last word. She replied, “Throwing shade like its sunny.” Well that’s a burn if we’ve ever heard one!
Although it’s not confirmed that these tweets were related, we think it’s pretty clear what was going on between the two young singers. Ah, the agony of young love!
What’s even more surprising is the fact that back in July 0f 2015, you’d never even know there was trouble in paradise. Austin told E! News that month that things with Becky were going great. “I think you know the fact that we, you know, are in the same career mode, it kind of brings us together even more.” Aw — we thought the two were a perfect match!
When the breakup occurred in August, Becky tweeted to her fans that she was “okay” and “just stressed.
Guys I'm fine! I'm happy! I'm going on TOUR!! It's just stressful. But I promise I'm good :) love you guys.

Austin reacted to the breakup on Twitter with a loving message directed towards his former gf. He wrote, “You’ll always mean the world to me.” On top of those sweet sentiments, the two were spotted flirting on Twitter just a month after their public breakup. We thought for sure they’d get back together in no time!
So what’s with the whiplash you two? One minute Austin and Becky are hot and heavy and the next they’re trying to one-up each other on social media. But what did their messages REALLY mean? Only time will tell!
What do you think HollywoodLifers, are Becky and Austin not as cool with each other as they originally claimed?
