Eight months after announcing their engagement, Michelle Williams and Chad Johnson have called it quits. In a now-deleted Instagram Story post, the Destiny’s Child singer revealed the shocking news, “I still remain fearless. I guess I still remain single! Things didn’t work out. The healing that needs to take place is a must! I don’t wanna destroy another relationship. Blessings to him, his family and ministry. #FEARLESS”
Over the last few months, the former couple has been in the news quite a bit (Michelle recently checked herself in a mental health facility), stemming from conversations and conflict surrounding their interracial relationship as shown on their OWN reality show, Chad Loves Michelle. They talked to the ladies of Sister Circle about the topic just last month.
According to PEOPLE, the two met “after a meeting at a spiritual retreat in March of 2017, Williams, 37, and Johnson, 40, kept in touch, building a strong relationship through conversations on Instagram, over text message and via FaceTime calls. They took their whirlwind romance public in July; on March 21, Johnson popped the question with a stunning 5-carat engagement ring; and the happy couple plan to wed this summer.”
Here’s to hoping them both finding love again. Take a look at the pair in happier times.
