Custom List Field items deleted that were in use

We have created a custom list field that we will want to populate using an automated process. The list items will contain only active records from our service management system.

What happens to the value of this custom field on existing expense reports if the list item is deleted? In other words, I create an expense report and select Project 1 from the custom field. Two months later Project 1 is removed from the list because it's no longer an active project. What happens to the value that was saved in the expense report? 


Does it blank it out because there is a direct relationship between the expense report and list item or does it copy the value down to the expense report when it's saved?

@craig-c if the expense report was fully processed, the data will not be affected. If the report is not fully processed, when a change is made to the report, the user would see an error when the report is trying to be saved.
