Posting on her Instagram stories, Brooke addressed the bombshell news and revealed she had been blindsided by the announcement made by her current live-in boyfriend.
“Hey beautiful people, before my phone blows up. I just want to say right now I’m finding this really quite overwhelming and just as surprising to me as you guys,” she wrote on Instagram stories at 10 am.
“I just woke up to the news.
“It was definitely agreed to part ways. I just wanted to do it privately, amicably, and respectfully.
“This is not how and what I expected to be doing right now so as you can imagine, this is all a lot.
“You will all have your judgements and have your say but there is a lot going on in my world and D’s of course. So I again just ask you to be kind, we are human.
“I really do hope you respect some part of somewhat ‘privacy’ we do have right now because like I said, this was a surprise to wake up to just as much as it was for you guys.
“For now, tuning out but we will speak soon, B.”
