Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown announces split from fiancé and partner of 10 years

The TV star has revealed the pair called it a day during lockdown.


Queer Eye star Karamo Brown has split from his fiancé, he has shared.

Announcing the news on The Ellen DeGeneres Show while chatting with stand-in host Stephen 'tWitch' Boss, the TV personality said the pair arrived at the decision during Covid-19 induced lockdown.

Sad to hear it.

“It was postponed because of the pandemic, but now it’s actually postponed officially,” Karamo explained.

“Because my fiancé and I, we were together for 10 years, and we broke up about three and a half months ago.”

The pair got engaged in May 2018.

“We're not 20 anymore, so it wasn't just, 'Oh, I'm not going to text you anymore' — it was like, we have a family and a home," he continued. "How do we separate this? And it was hard. We went to virtual counseling, we did a lot of things. But eventually I was like, this is a moment where I need to decide, is my happiness important?

"And once I made that decision, I said, you know, we are going to have to break up.”

The star added there was "luckily no cheating" and the pair remain "good friends.
