Stunning gymnast Olivia Dunne had her followers gushing over her after a cryptic Valentine's Day post.
Dunne, 20, represented the US national team and became a millionaire as a teenager thanks to her social media presence and endorsement deals.
The influencer has already racked up 3.5million Instagram followers and has also used TikTok to boost her profile, receiving over 350million likes across her uploads.
Understandably, many are quick to ask Dunne about her relationship status but despite her high levels of content, that is one topic that has not been discussed. On Valentine's Day, she posted a photograph to Instagram as she sat on a bench with a bouquet of roses, with the caption: "He loves me…he loves me not."

Fellow influencer Katie Sigmond called Dunne "gorgeous" in the comments while fellow gymnast Aleah Finnegan added: "Silly boys. I love u the mostest."
It is unclear who – if anyone – was the subject of the post but Dunne has previously revealed what she does and doesn't look for in a man.
Using a random generator on Twitter, she was asked if she would date a man with certain characteristics, including humour. In one response, she said: "He's a 5 (on looks) but he's funny? I love to laugh so really he's a ten."
There was a much lower score of 2/10 for a 'booty call', referencing someone who may only get in touch late at night. But the biggest turn off for the gymnast is a lack of hygiene – particularly men who don't shower regularly or use deodorant. She branded the suggestion 'gross' and offered a rating of zero.
Last year, Dunne was named the most influential female college athlete in terms of NIL (name, image and likeness), a metric used to measure an individual's ability to profit off themselves.
However, the attention does come at a cost with her coach revealing last month that he had to hire a bodyguard to protect Dunne from huge amounts of fans at gymnastics meets. Dunne even claimed police were forced to intervene during one incident.
"There are some people occasionally that do reach out, and it is a bit concerning," she said. 'As a woman, you are not responsible for how a man looks at you and objectifies you. That's not a woman's responsibility."
Dunne faced criticism in the past for using her image to boost her profile and status. But she has been defended by the likes of golf beauty Paige Spiranac, who said she was sick of the belittling of female athletes.
