TMZ: Chaz Bono Calls Off Engagement To Girlfriend Jennifer Elia

We thought Chaz Bono had really been accepted as a mainstream celebrity when he got a slot on Dancing With the Stars, but now he’s done something to cement his place as another run-of-the-mill Hollywood scion: He’s announced he and fiancée  Jennifer Elia have called off their engagement and “are no longer a couple,” according to TMZ.

(Another sign Bono has been accepted by the mainstream: he’s getting hounded by TMZ!)

Howard Bragman, Bono’s PR flak, tells TMZ, that the two “leave this relationship with great love, respect and affection toward one another.” After more than a decade dating, Bono proposed to Elia earlier this year during filming of his series, Being Chaz.

Wait, a trumped-up proposal for the sake of a reality show? Chaz is on his way to dethroning Kim Kardashian as America’s sweetheart!

    @Isaac C: Really, any need? Perhaps you should consider being a decent person instead of being so completely devoid of compassion for people you don’t know or understand. That’s a big “parhaps”, though.

  • Norris

    Prediction: Chaz will become Chastity once again in the New Year.

  • christopher di spirito

    I knew Chaz didn’t have the balls to go through with it.

  • Red Meat

    Who the hell wants to marry a person who feels like a fat man in the inside so became a fat man? This is an image problem.

  • Ian

    That’s it. I’ve reached my limit. Chaz is just another “child of a star”, regardless of gender identity. I give this a big “whatever.”

  • Jake

    Why should we care about a no-talent non-celeb?

  • Sean

    I’m sorry Chaz is a huge loser who wanted more attention. Epic fail.

    @christopher di spirito:

    Please tell me you knew exactly how funny what you just said was. LOL!!

  • R.A.

    Just shows you can change your sex and still end up suffering “Lesbian Bed Death.”

  • soakman

    I find Christopher’s ‘joke’ in bad taste regardless of who it is about. Just throwing that out there.

  • Aiden

    @soakman: Well he is an asshole.

  • R.A.

    So is anyone who allows his political movement to be jerked around by demented celebrities.
