My Big Fat Fabulous Life star Whitney Way Thore reveals why she went public amid ex fiance baby news


My Big Fat Fabulous Life star Whitney Way Thore has revealed why she went public with breaking her engagement from ex-fiance Chase Severino after finding out that he was expecting a child with another woman.

The 36-year-old reality star opened up about her reasoning behind her post last month in which she shared her heartbreak after discovering her fiance had impregnated someone else.

She told People on Tuesday: ‘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.

‘I’m hurting and all of that just compounds it. I’m looking forward to a more positive future.’ 

Thore also  admitted that she just heard about the news centered around her now ex-fiance.

She explained: ‘I learned this news myself fairly recently.

‘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 has since taken a break from social media as she finds it difficult for strangers to have such strong opinions about her life but did take time to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

Meanwhile she has been quarantining with her friend Buddy Bell through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thore explained: ‘Luckily, Buddy has been with me for the last month.

‘I still haven’t left the house due to coronavirus, so he grocery shops and cooks and it’s been great not to be physically alone during this time since I’m not able to see my family and other friends.’

Last month the star chose to announce the melancholy news with a photo of a black screen and detailed caption, which explained Severino is expecting a child with another woman.

‘Chase and I are no longer engaged,’ the 36-year-old reality star wrote. ‘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.’ 

She added that her former fiancé only ‘recently’ shared the news that his relationship ‘resulted in a pregnancy.’

‘Chase will be a father in October,’ the TCL star, who got engaged in October 2019 revealed. 

Despite the complicated reasoning behind their split, Thore said she is ‘not interested in anything hateful being directed toward anyone’ and requested privacy.

Severino also reported the news on his own Instagram page with a more concise post. 

‘I don’t even know where/how to start,’ he shared. ‘I am very excited to announce I am expecting a child in the fall. Please see Whitney’s post for details. 

He continued, ‘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.’
