Chelsea Handler announces the end of her relationship with Jo Koy. But it’s still just a pause and not a real end.

Chelsea Handler (47) and Jo Koy (51) are going their separate ways for the time being. The comedian announced a relationship break via Instagram. There, Handler posted a video that she and her ex-lover recorded in advance of their one-year anniversary. In September 2021, the comedians announced they were a couple, also via Instagram.

Chelsea Handler reacted with the Instagram post to the rumors of separation, which initially raised the “TMZ” portal. “Expecting to celebrate our first year together, Jo and I recorded this video early on,” she wrote. “But as many of you have noticed, it is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that we have jointly decided that it is best for us to take a break from our relationship now.”

Addressing her fans, who have been following her relationship with the colleague on social media, the comedian said: “I know that many of you have invested in our love and I wanted to express how much it means to us both. How much it still means,” she wrote. “And how much I now believe in love for each of us.”

Chelsea Handler: ‘This is not the end’

She only had words of appreciation for Jo Koy. “This man filled my heart with love and through him my life changed forever. To be loved and adored by Jo Koy was one of the greatest gifts of my life.” He gave her back her belief in men and love. He inspired her to be creative and enjoy hard work.

Chelsea Handler hints at continuing her relationship with Jo Koy, whom she met on her show Chelsea Lately. “This is not an end. It is a new beginning and it is a comfort to know that I am still loved and that I love this man.”
