Chaz Bono, the transgender son of singer Cher, began moving out of the home he shared with his partner of 12 years, Jennifer Elia, yesterday.
Chaz Bono, 42, was pictured leaving their LA residence with a large suitcase just days after announcing the end of their engagement.
Cher’ son looked downbeat as hauled his baggage and coat to his car.
Jennifer Elia, 36, later emerged in what appeared to be a distraught state – her puffy eyes suggested she had been crying.
It is unclear where Chaz Bono will reside now their relationship has come to an end.
Chaz Bono and Jennifer Elia announced their split through Chaz’ spokesperson Howard Bragman earlier this week.
Howard Bragman said: “They leave this relationship with great love, respect and affection toward one another.
“No further amplification will be forthcoming and they ask that you respect their privacy at this time.”
Chaz Bono also tweeted: “Thanks for your concern about our separation. I’m doing fine, and we remain on good terms with nothing but respect and affection 4 eachother.”
Just last month, Chaz Bono was shown popping the question during his one-hour TV-show special Being Chaz, which aired on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
The programme was a follow-up to his Emmy-nominated documentary Becoming Chaz which focused on his transition from female to male.
Jennifer Elia – who is writing a book – supported Chaz Bono during his gender reassignment process and was regularly seen cheering from the sidelines during his time on Dancing With The Stars.
But Jennifer Elia revealed that the process of dealing with Chaz Bono’s transition was difficult at times, admitting that she started drinking again when he told her that he made the final decision about changing genders.
