Rosie O'Donnell has reportedly split with fiance Elizabeth Rooney after a year-long engagement. The couple became engaged in 2018 after dating for a year.

The 57-year-old former 'View' host hasn't made a mention of Elizabeth, 34, "in a while", according to Radar Online.

The outlet reported that Elizabeth, a Massachusetts-based police officer, deleted all her photos with Rosie and even removed the R initial from her Instagram bio.

The couple had dated for a year before Rosie proposed to Elizabeth in the summer of 2018. But the star may have hinted at a possible split when she spoke to Us Weekly on October 17 at the New York City premiere of 'The Sound On'.

Rosie was asked whether they had begun planning their wedding. "No, no there are none. No wedding plans," she replied.

Furthermore, Elizabeth has even unfollowed Rosie. However, the comedian is still following her former fiance.

Rosie gushed about Elizabeth to Howard Stern in 2017. "It's the first time I've dated someone younger than me and it's a very trippy thing... I get along with her so well. It's kind of fascinating," she told Us Weekly at the time. "The one thing that she doesn't know? [Barbara] Streisand. I made her watch Funny Girl. She's like, 'It was good.' I'm like, 'Come on!'" 

The comedian was previously married to Kelli Carpenter in 2004. The same year, they broke up and Rosie married Michelle Rounds in 2012. The couple split in 2016, and Michelle tragically committed suicide in September 2017.

Previously, Rosie told Us Weekly that she and Elizabeth had initially held off on the wedding because she wanted her children to familiarize themselves with her lover. "I have a five-year-old with autism [Dakota] and we have a routine going, the two of us. Elizabeth comes every five days and stays for a few days," she said at the time. "It's kind of a great, slow process where [Dakota] does say, 'I have two older brothers and two sisters and two mommies.'"


"So, she's kind of in the vibe of it, but you know when you have a kid with special needs like that, you try to go in a little bit of a different place," Rosie added. "So, we both agree that [holding off on wedding plans] would be best for everyone."
