DWTS' Chaz Bono Ends Engagement to Jennifer Elia

Throughout Chaz Bono’s time on Dancing With the Stars, fiancee Jennifer Elia sat in the audience, tearful, cheering him on. Though the couple appeared to be going strong on DWTS, reports confirm that Chaz Bono and Jennifer Elia have ended their engagement.

Just last month the OWN documentary series, which was nominated for an Emmy, “Becoming Chaz” featured the romantic proposal. The couple met in 1999 and dated immediately after their introductions.  Jennier Elia was by Chaz Bono’s side throughout his journey as he completed transgender surgery becoming a man. However, whether it be scheduling conflicts or a change of heart, the couple parted ways.

“They leave this relationship with great love, respect and affection toward one another. No further amplification will be forthcoming and they ask that you respect their privacy at this time,” Chaz Bono‘s publicist, Howard Bragman, told TMZ.

Chaz Bono is currently working as a motivational speaker and is considering developing a talk show.
