Host Ryan Seacrest and Shayna Taylor have called it quits, again. The couple had been dating on and off since 2014 and the recent break-up is their third in the nearly six year-long acquaintance.
“Ryan and Shayna decided to end their romantic relationship amicably some time ago. They remain good friends, each other’s biggest supporters and will always cherish their time together as a couple,” Ryan’s spokesperson said in a statement.
The news of their split comes as quite a shocker as only last month, Ryan wished Shayna a happy third anniversary on Live With Kelly and Ryan and seemed head over heels in love.
“It is our third time together. It’s an 8-year run, but it’s our third run together,” he said, furthering joking about how a “rollercoaster” always reminded him of their relationship.
Ryan and Shayna first met at a restaurant in 2013. Even though marriage was never on the cards, the two seemed to be getting serious, despite the multiple break-ups.
Shayna Taylor is yet to comment on the break-up but Ryan has moved on, or so it seems from the looks of the photos that have surfaced online.
Ryan Seacrest’s mystery rebound woman
Even before his split had been made public, Ryan Seacrest was spotted holding hands with a mystery blonde woman while reposing under the sun in Mexico, in pictures obtained by DailyMail.com.
We don’t blame Seacrest for a little downtime though, especially after the recent health scare. The American Idol finale didn’t go as planned for the host, as fans expressed concerns over his health and a possible stroke after he was seen slurring his speech. His left eye too appeared strikingly larger than his right one.
A rep for Ryan later reassured fans, saying that Ryan did not have any kind of stroke. The 45-year-old had been working relentlessly, “juggling three to four on-air jobs” even from home and had no time for a breather in between his busy schedule.
All work and no play made the lockdown hard for Ryan, and he went off to Mexico for a well-deserved break. Well, a romantic getaway is more like it.
A source told E! that Ryan “didn’t have his phone or computer around and was very attentive and always having deep conversations with his new girl.”
