Chaz Bono Breaks Off His Engagement: What Happened?

Chaz Bono Breaks Off His Engagement: What Happened?

A rep for Cher's son and his girlfriend, Jennifer Elia, confirm the sad news.

Barely one month ago, we watched Cher's son, Chaz Bono, propose to his longtime girlfriend, Jennifer Elia on the reality show, Being Chaz. Taped in May, he popped the question as her birthday present and offered her a big, beautiful ring. It was super romantic, considering he took her to the Seattle space needle for its great view to do it.

Jennifer seemed thrilled, saying, "Wow, it's gorgeous. Thank you so much!" Did You Watch Chaz Bono Propose To His Longtime Girlfriend?

But now, after having been together since 2005, the engagement is off and the two have called it quits right before Christmas, according to TMZ. A rep for Chaz tells the website: "They are no longer a couple."

It seemed that this couple defied many odds together — they managed to get through Chaz's headline-making gender change, being followed by cameras to document the process for Becoming Chaz and the grueling weeks during which he competed on Dancing With the Stars. Chaz Bono Speaks Out On Sex Change

So, why did Chaz and Jennifer end?

According to TMZ, Chaz's rep, Howard Bragman said, "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."

What a shame... it seemed to be real love.
