Tinsley Mortimer’s walk down the hall has been interrupted.
The 45-year-old former “The Real Housewives of New York” star and CouponCabin founder Scott Kluth ended their engagement, People reported Thursday.
Kluth, 40, told the publication in a statement: “After 14 months of engagement, Tinsley and I ended our relationship and have lived independently for the past few months. This was an incredibly difficult decision, but I think it’s the best for both of us. I will always care about Tinsley and sincerely wish him happiness and success in all he does in the future. “
“While I understand that this news will be of interest to many, I ask for privacy and understanding during this time as I continue to work to emotionally recover from the end of our relationship.”
A source told the publication that Mortimer was “shocked” and “devastated” by the breakup.
Kluth and Mortimer met on “The Real Housewives of New York” after Carole Radziwill introduced them on a blind date. They dated from time to time until Kluth finally asked the question in November 2019 with an elaborate Christmas-themed proposal.
Mortimer left the Bravo series and moved to Chicago to be with Kluth after accepting his proposal. Her initial plans for her wedding were thwarted by the coronavirus pandemic.
“RHONY” fans will remember that Mortimer had been planning his wedding for quite some time. Her mother, Dabney Mercer, took her shopping for a wedding dress while on the show, leading to a scene of the couple crying over Mortimer’s frozen eggs as Mortimer tried on a dress.
Mortimer was previously married to Topper Mortimer.
