Another celebrity couple has pulled the plug on their May-December relationship. Chelsea Handler, 38, has officially called it quits with her multimillionaire boyfriend, 56-year-old hotelier André Balazs. The celebrity couple had been dating on and off for the past two years, but this time, their breakup is said to be for good—at least that’s what he’s reportedly been telling his friends about their hot-and-cold May-December relationship.
In the past, Handler opened up about being with the older man, and admitted that although they had broken up a couple of times, they were trying to make things work. “My boyfriend and I, we’ve broken up a couple of times, we’ve gotten back together and we’re trying to figure out how to live a life together,” she said in an interview a few months ago, adding, “But when you really want to be with someone, you can make that work.”
Although neither Handler nor Balazs confirmed this most recent split themselves, Handler’s friend, actress Mary McCormack, accidentally revealed the news about their breakup while appearing on Handler’s television show, Chelsea Lately. The two friends were discussing Handler’s “single situation” by trying to decipher her dating history and past relationships, which included a random, albeit brief fling with rapper 50 Cent back in 2010.
In her true comedic style, Handler resorted to her last option for a suitable match: a woman. “Maybe I’ll start dating a b*tch,” she joked. “That totally would be something I would do, is date a woman.”
What do you think: Who would Chelsea Handler make a good couple with?
