Laverne Cox is single again after splitting from her boyfriend, Kyle Draper.
The “Orange is the New Black” star and the L.A.-based real estate agent dated for nearly two years before calling it quits.
Laverne released a social media press release regarding their break up:
@thekyledraper and I have broken up. After much soul searching and tears from both of us, we have decided it’s time for us to go our separate ways.
We decided we should make a public statement since our relationship was in the public in ways neither of us anticipated. This is that public statement.
We know our relationship meant so much to so many people, especially trans folks, giving them hope that this kind of love is possible for them as well.
That hope, the hope for love has not waned for me in the face of this breakup but rather is forfeited. Knowing that we are both capable of giving and receiving love with this level of kindness, respect, trust, affection, depth, and intensity has been so healing and life-affirming for us both.
I am so grateful we were open to love and for every moment we had together. We have both grown in innumerable ways as a result. Now, it’s time to move on separately.
We both want a breakup that honors and respects the quality of our relationship and the love we shared. Its possible.
