'Queer Eye' Star Karamo Brown Revealed He & His Fiancé Have Broken Up
The good news is that the two are still really good friends.
Karamo Brown and his fiancé Ian Jordan are no longer dating.
During a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Queer Eye's resident culture expert revealed to guest host Stephen "tWitch" Boss that he and Ian (who had been together for over a decade and first got engaged back in 2018) actually are no longer seeing each other after quietly breaking up earlier this year.
"It was postponed because of the pandemic, but now it's actually postponed officially, because my fiancé and I, we were together for 10 years, and we broke up about three and a half months ago," Brown told Boss about his wedding plans that were put on hold due to the ongoing global pandemic. "We were distracted by so much — with the kids, and our careers — that during that time, I had to really say, how is our communication? How are other parts of our lives? Are we growing in the same place?"
"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. 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."
Luckily, the relationship ended on an amicable note.
"It's very nice when it's like, 'I still love you and support you.' I want him to be happy, he wants me to be happy," Karamo then said. "But yeah, no more wedding, so if y'all got any friends...! I'm lying, I'm not ready to move on that quick, I'm not ready."
Sometimes things just don't work out, but we're glad Karamo and Ian are still really good friends!
