The Challenge’s star and The Debt Collector actress are no longer together. The breakup may come as a surprise to many fans as the pair recently documented their romantic trip to Santa Barbara, California.
While addressing the break-up, Willett said in a statement on Monday to US Weekly, “I’ve always tried my best to be an open book and after seeing everything circulate over the internet, I felt like I should let you all know that Johnny and I are no longer together.” She continues, “While I feel heartbroken, I’m thankful to know the truth. Johnny is someone I loved & respected very much and so I will be taking some time to heal and process it all. Thank you to everyone for the support and when I’m ready to share more, I will. For now, I’m just focused on spending time with my family.”
Meanwhile, the MTV reality star said, “Thank you to everyone for the support and when I’m ready to share more, I will. For now, I’m just focused on spending time with my family.”
At the same time, some followers guessed that there could be trouble in paradise when Morgan took to Instagram Stories over the weekend and told her fans that she was feeling “sad and very betrayed.”
“I leave today for a family vacation to Maui and I felt like I would be a total fraud if I went about posting smiling, happy & fun stories because deep down, that’s not how I truly feel,” she wrote. “It’s times like these where I wonder if life would be easier if my life was not in such a public setting, so I could decipher my own feelings without the pressure of what people may think or conclude,” she wrote.
The dating rumors sparks between Johnny and Morgan when they competed together on The Challenge: War of the Worlds in early 2019. However, the couple tried to keep their relationship on the private side, but both parties couldn’t help but gush about the other during their romance.
“It’s so funny because people always say, ‘You’re dating Johnny Bananas!’ And I’m like no, I’m dating John Devenanzio!” Morgan shared with E! News in May 2020. “He really does a good job at separating his TV character from his real-life character. And while yes, he still cracks jokes constantly (mainly on my behalf), he’s a sweetheart and really affectionate.”
