Whitney Way Thore and Buddy Bell have been spending time together after her split with Chase Severino. Fans had been speculating a split between the two as they stopped posting about each other on social media. Their speculation was confirmed when Thore shared a public announcement about their split. 

"Hey y’all. This is a really weird and uncomfortable thing to have to 'announce' on social media, but as I get more questions and hear more rumors, I figured it was time. Chase and I are no longer engaged," she wrote. "After experiencing a lot of ups and downs and still living apart, Chase reconnected with a woman with whom he has had a long history. Chase recently told me this information and the fact that it had resulted in a pregnancy. Chase will be a father in October. I’m not interested in anything hateful being directed toward anyone. I would ask for privacy for all involved as we move on and focus on the future."

The revelation came as a shock to everyone and fans were quick to send her their condolences. Recently, the reality star opened up about her ups and downs as she sat down for a video for TLC. Whitney opened up about how Chase broke the news to her in the video. She recalled Chase had wanted to have this conversation in person and had requested Whitney to meet him. 

However, Whitney was worried about what the news might be and decided to hear it over the phone than in person. Whitney admitted she was shocked by the call and added that it was the last time they spoke to each other. Even though Chase has tried to contact her, Whitney admitted she did not think she was in a position to rekindle the friendship with him. 

The reality star further revealed that after posting the announcement on social media she suffered a panic attack and had to be rushed to the hospital. Luckily for her, Buddy was there by her side as he drove to meet her. The two have been quarantining together and Whitney admitted she feels good and safe to have someone by her side. 

Fans had always thought Buddy was Whitney's soulmate. Even when Chase came into the picture, they had their doubts about the relationship as they hooped Buddy and her would end up together. Seeing how things have played out, fans have their fingers crossed while some think she has found her man. 

"Buddy is your man. Always has been," read one comment. "I’m so sorry this happened to you. Stay strong!! I’m so glad you have Buddy there with you. Hang in there!" another wrote. Another chipped in "Buddy loves you!!!"
