It’s always unbelievably devastating to see couples go their separate ways, especially those who appear to have the “perfect relationship.” Many Hollywood couples appear that way but, as we all too well know, there are few that can stand the test of time.
On December 7, news broke that one of most well-loved couples decided to call it quits. Destiny’s Child Michelle Williams and her fiance, Pastor Chad Johnson, publicly announced they were officially over.
Michelle chose to use her Instagram to tell the world her news. Shortly after the release of her new hit single, “Fearless,” she put on her Insta-story: “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 his ministry. #FEARLESS”
Johnson and Williams announced their engagement in April by doing an exclusive spread in PEOPLE. In an interview, Williams detailed her excitement following the engagement:
“He proposed to me in Pebble Beach at this beautiful resort and I was crying so lough that people were turning around, going back to their rooms and stuff, they were coming to the restaurant because they were like, ‘Did she just find out something he did bad? What happened?’”
Shortly after their engagement, Williams was hospitalized and then went to a facility to treat severe depression. Johnson refused to leave her side during this time, proving his devout love for her.
The couple had also started a reality tv show called Chad Loves Michelle on the Oprah Winfrey Network where they let the public into their private lives and all the ups and downs in their relationship.
After this aired in November, people were unbelievably shocked to see the couple chose to go their separate ways. While the details of the split remain unknown, we hope that both will be able to mend their broken hearts and find love again down the road.
