Chaz Bono, who lasted longer than he should have this season on ABC‘s Dancing With The Stars, may have recently proposed to his girlfriend, Jennifer Elia, but the pair have called off the engagement. This seems to be the trend lately, as we learned recently that Karina Smirnoff called off her engagement as well, but what was Chaz and Jennifer’s reason? Read on to find out!
Dancing With The Stars‘ most controversial contestant to date, Chaz Bono has ended his engagement and relationship with his fiancee, Jennifer Elia. While no details are available as to what may have caused the split, the couple’s publicist recently told People Magazine: “They leave this relationship with great love, respect and affection towards one another.No further amplification will be forthcoming and they ask that you respect their privacy at this time.”
Chaz Bono did take to Twitter after the split, just to assure fans he was okay, adding: “I’m doing fine, and we remain on good terms with nothing but respect and affection 4 each other.” Jennifer Elia and Chaz Bono had been together before Chaz’s transition from female to male, and she has always supported his decision. Chaz proposed to Jennifer just last month on OWN’s Being Chaz – the same show in which Jennifer Elia shared her fears for Chaz’s safety after his stint on Dancing With The Stars.
We wish this couple all the best as they get through this rough time!
