Tinsley Mortimer’s walk down the aisle has been cut short.
The former star of “The Real Housewives of New York,” 45, and CouponCabin founder Scott Kluth ended their engagement, People reported on Thursday.
Kluth, 40, told the publication in a statement, “After 14 months of engagement, Tinsley and I have ended our relationship and we have been living independently for the last few months. This was an incredibly difficult decision, but it is one that I believe is best for both of us. I will always care about Tinsley and I sincerely wish her happiness and success in all that she does in the future.”
“While I understand this news will be of interest to many, I ask for privacy and understanding during this time as I continue to work on recovering emotionally from the end of our relationship,” he concluded.
CELEBRITY SPLITS OF 2021
A source told the publication that Mortimer was “blindsided” and “devastated” by the breakup.
Kluth and Mortimer met on “The Real Housewives of New York” after Carole Radziwill introduced them on a blind date. They dated on and off until Kluth finally popped the question in November 2019 with an elaborate Christmas-themed proposal.

Mortimer left the Bravo series and relocated to Chicago to be with Kluth after accepting his proposal. Her initial plans for their wedding were derailed by the coronavirus pandemic.
“RHONY” fans will recall that Mortimer had been planning her wedding for quite some time. Her mom, Dabney Mercer, took her shopping for a wedding dress while on the show, which led to a scene of the pair crying over Mortimer’s frozen eggs while Mortimer was trying on a gown.
