My Big Fat Fabulous Life star Whitney Way Thore seems to have moved on after leaving her ex-fiancé Chase Severino in May 2020, after it was revealed that he had a child with another woman. She has a new “French man” in her life and a funny, creative way of keeping him anonymous.
Whitney Way Thore is moving on.
Whitney Way Thore revealed her new man in an Instagram post. Well, sort of. In the caption, Thore said, “I’ve always had a sorta love/mostly hate relationship with social media, but after the last year, it’s grown even more complicated. So — when your French man says he values his privacy but you still wanna share him, this is what social media gets.”
The photos feature Whitney Way Thore with her new boyfriend, whose face has been covered by circles in editing. Fans have been hoping to see Whitney move on since her split from ex-fiancé Severino.
In May 2020, Whitney Way Thore announced the end of their relationship in an Instagram post, captioned, “Chase and I are no longer engaged. 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.” Even worse, Severino, “recently told me this information and the fact that it had resulted in a pregnancy.”
Chase’s post was much shorter, “I don’t even know where/how to start. I am very excited to announce I am expecting a child in the fall. Please see Whitney’s post for details.” But he still tried to be courteous, writing “I have nothing but love and respect for Whitney and our time together. Thank you for always supporting us. As we now go our separate ways, I ask for privacy for Whitney, myself, and the mother of my child who wishes to remain anonymous.”
Whitney Way Thore is trying to be positive about a pretty screwed-up situation.
In a conversation with People Magazine last June, Thore opened up about her experience with the cheating and the breakup, saying, “It wasn’t something I’d been sitting with for months and months, but once I saw rumors about our relationship — after I finally deleted our photos on Instagram, for example — I knew I just wanted to get it over with and announce it so I could fully start to move on,”
She continued, “It’s a difficult thing to navigate — honestly, I would have rather not said it, just to avoid the inevitable backlash and gossip, but at the same time, people in their lives already knew of course and a baby isn’t something that can remain private in the future. I definitely didn’t want it to look like I wasn’t aware of the full situation, but at the same time, I truly just don’t want the drama and the gossip.”
