Just when you thought the couple in the viral ‘distracted boyfriend’ meme could finally reclaim their peace, a guy has learned that every relationship has its secrets—and this one, no matter how staged, was no different.

As a digital marketer, Andrew J Abernathy would constantly be exposed to stock images. One fateful day, he stumbled across a familiar face—the woman from the now infamous photo, which was taken by photographer Antonio Guillem.

At this point, Abernathy suspected that there was more than met the eye. He ran an investigation to see if he could uncover more—and down the rabbit hole he went.

Now an unofficial private investigator, Abernathy has managed to find enough pictures to stitch the couple’s life story together and share it for all the world to see.

Sure enough, the pair had its trials and tribulations; the “distracted” phase was just the tip of the iceberg.

Fans would be disappointed to learn that the man in the notorious picture has committed acts more heinous than checking out another woman.

You’ve seen their faces, but do you know their story? Watch the duo’s life unravel in the 22-tweet thread below.
