The personal trainer unfollowed her beau on Instagram and removed any mention of his name in her account bio.

She has also been spotted several times without her engagement ring, and been spending most of her downtime partying with her friends and sister Bridgette.

Braith and Rachael have also failed to share any photos of each other on Instagram for some time.

While footy star Braith still follows Rachael’s account, he hasn’t shared a photo of the couple together since December last year.
