Along with a video that the comedian had planned to share for the couple’s forthcoming one-year anniversary, Handler, 47, posted on Instagram on Monday, July 18. “It is with a heavy heart to report that we have decided mutually that it is best for us to take a break from our relationship right now.
“I know many of you were engaged in our love, and I wanted to explain to you how much it meant to both of us,” the Chelsea host concluded. how much meaning it still has. And how strongly I now think that everyone is loved.
The native of New Jersey later wrote Koy, 45, an open letter in which she detailed how their connection had altered her. She raved about her ex-boyfriend, saying, “You blew my creativity open, my love for working hard again, being on the road, and you reminded me who I was and always have, and my feet have never been more firmly planted on the ground. The Washington native transformed my life forever.”
The TV personality asked viewers to continue to “root for the both of us” as she closed her heartfelt ode, adding, “This is not an ending but another beginning. Knowing that I still adore this man in the same manner that the sun adores the moon and the moon adores the sun gives me peace.
In September 2021, Handler and Koy started dating, fifteen years after their initial encounter.
In an episode of her “Dear Chelsea” podcast from October 2021, Handler acknowledged that she had feelings for Koy back in 2007 when they both worked on her late-night talk show Chelsea Lately, but she had “suppressed” them.
Additionally, who gives an s-t? the Vodka, are you there? The author of It’s Me, Chelsea remarked. See where we are right now. If I had such feelings earlier, I probably would have ruined it.
Because Handler was unable to articulate how she truly felt about the comedy writer, the two became hostile while they were working together, according to Handler.
On the red carpet of the People’s Choice Awards in December 2021, the Are You There, Chelsea? the actress admitted, “In retrospect, that was my way of flirting.” “I believe that was my currency because I was so out of touch with my own feelings.”
The Girls Behaving Badly alum said in November 2021 that falling in love with the author of Mixed Plate: Chronicles of an All-American Combo gave her hope that she could find “The One.”
Don’t change who you are or make yourself smaller to find your person, I urge everyone who is still looking. Be patient, and never accept anything less than what you deserve, Handler advised at the time on Instagram. Your individual is approaching, and occasionally they have been facing you the entire time.
