First, she was engaged, then she was broken up (or so we thought), and now, she’s officially back on Instagram… at least for the minute. That being said, let’s get right to it and break it down for you – seriously, we don’t know how long this is going to last.

In case you forgot, back in 2019, the Hollywood beauty revealed she had graduated from the Los Angeles-based Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. And, well, if you ask us, something tells us we’re about to be hearing a whole lot more about it.
