We’ve seen attempts at getting a scorned lover back in good graces in many movies, and it’s usually through grand romantic gestures-multiple bouquets of flowers, a personalized song, a surprise visit late at night when it’s raining-but in 2016, the way to get your ex’s attention is apparently through Instagram.

Rapper Sage the Gemini took to the popular photo-sharing app to try and get ex-girlfriend Jordin Sparks’ attention, who apparently has been dodging his calls since they broke up recently, through an open love letter via an Instagram caption.

Sharing an obvious throwback photo of the couple out at some function, Sage let his fingers do all the talking with a lengthy, and candid, caption.

You might find it desperate, you might find it a little cringe-worthy, you might find it endearing…whatever the case, one thing is true-this caption is #NoFilter.

According to one insider, their relationship started off great in the beginning but as time went on Sparks was having trust issues-and Sage wasn’t helping the matter any with his behavior.

Having gone through a rough breakup with long-term boyfriend Jason Derulo, Sparks just didn’t want to go t again with Sage, the source previously told E! News.

The 26-year-old star, who was with Derulo for three years prior to dating Sage, also admitted that she’s still figuring things out when it comes to life and love.

“I feel like the 20s, you’re learning who you are, you’re figuring out really what you love, and what you like,” she explained to us last summer.

So will she decide to call him back? Guess we’ll have to stay tuned for the next episode of InstaLove: The Sage and Jordin Edition.
