SPLIT: Chelsea Handler And Andre Balazs
"Are you there, vodka? It's me, Chelsea, single again." Chelsea Handler, 36, and hotelier Andre Balazs have called it quits after less than one year together, Us Weekly reports. The two, who dated for about a year, kept their relationship out of the limelight — a change of pace for the famously candid Handler.
A bestselling author and host of E!'s Chelsea Lately, Handler explained keeping the relationship under wraps was a conscious choice. "I'm seeing someone now, but, I have spent so much time exposing my personal life to everybody that I finally am in a situation where I feel like it's disrespectful to another person," she told Piers Morgan in May. "It's not about me, because obviously I would like to make fun of him as much as possible, but he has kids, so I have to be nice."
Handler, who tweeted on Tuesday a picture of herself and her sisters with the caption "Sissies forever," previously dated rapper 50 Cent, Animal Planet’s Dave Salmoni and Comcast CEO Ted Harbert. There are no reports of a reason why exactly she and Balazs broke up.
