But Brie broke the news that the pair had parted ways in an interview with Harper's Bazaar earlier in 2023, saying, "I don’t have a next job. I don’t have a home. I don’t have a partner. I don’t have a plan. I'm just completely open."

The pair had been together since 2013, and a source told People at the time, "They have taken a step back from their engagement for the time being, but they remain close."
