Chelsea Handler and Jo Koy announce breakup via Instagram
Comedian couple Chelsea Handler and Jo Koy are no longer, with the duo announcing their break-up in a lengthy social media post. And by lengthy, we mean lengthy.
Late on Monday, Handler took to her Instagram to explain in intricate detail why they broke up, expressing appreciation for her now ex-partner, as well as to her fans for their interest in the dynamic duo’s relationship. Did somebody say parasocial relationship?
The post ended rather curiously with a promotion for Koy’s upcoming project Easter Sunday, because you can never go past a bit of branding synergy for your ex-partner. It seems they’ve split on good terms if this video is an indicator, which is a good sign for fans who wish the best for both halves the couple.
In anticipation of celebrating our first year together, Jo and I recorded this video early, but as many of you have noticed, it is with a heavy heart to announce that we have decided together that it is best for us to take a break from our relationship right now.
I know many of you were invested in our love, and I wanted to express to you how much that meant to both of us. How much it still means. And how much I now believe in love for each one of us.
This man blew my heart open with love and because of him, my life experience has changed forever. To be loved and adored by @jokoy has been one of the greatest gifts of my life. He renewed my faith in men, in love, in being 100% who I am, and I’ve never been more optimistic for the future.
Jo- you blew my creativity open, my lust for working hard again, being on the road again, and you reminded me who I was and always have been, and my feet have never been more firmly planted in the ground.
This is not an ending. It’s another beginning, and it’s a comfort to know that I am still loved and love this man the way the sun loves the moon and the moon loves the sun. YOUR PERSON IS COMING.
So, please continue to root for both of us, because you never know what life will bring and let’s first start by all going to the theater on August 5th to buy tickets to Jo’s new movie EASTER SUNDAY and Filipino PRIDE! Let’s go!
