Our favorite avocado-slinging Queer Eye hottie, Antoni Porowski, is single again.
The 35-year-old food and wine expert and Flipping Out‘s Trace Lehnhoff have officially called it quits after one year of dating.
As of Wednesday, the news became Instagram official after Antoni seemingly scrubbed every trace of the Bravo star from his feed. Ouch…
In 2019, deleting every pic of your ex from social media is about as definitive as it gets — but we do have a bit more insight as to why this ridiculously good-looking pair parted ways!
A source close to the Netflix star told People the spark between the couple simply fizzled out. They said:
“The relationship ran its course. Things just didn’t work out and he is concentrating on work.”
Welp, there you have it!
Porowski has been keeping pretty busy these days: riding the continued success of QE‘s fourth season and working on his upcoming cookbook, Antoni In The Kitchen, slated for release this September. So, this reasoning does sound plausible.
Although the insider makes the split sound amicable at best, we can’t help but wonder what other factors were at play here…
Antoni told People he is enjoying catching up and spending time with close friends over casual gatherings at his NYC home following the split:
“I’m single now and it’s been a good opportunity to connect with friends. I’ll make food for them and we’ll all hang out in the kitchen. We’ll nosh on like a cheese and charcuterie board and then I’ll make a dish. Then we sit down and enjoy it. That’s my very favorite. Being able to be free and have fun with friends is the ultimate luxury these days.”
As we mentioned at the top, the Polish-Canadian star wasted no time cleaning up his profile, but this group shot with Justin Theroux (below) apparently made the cut. For now.
It’s also very telling that Lehnhoff still has quite a few photos of him and Antoni up on his IG. Although, we doubt that’ll be the case for much longer.
Back in March, the Queer Eye star told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live the pair began dating last summer after he slid into Trace’s DMs. What a modern romance, indeed!
Prior to his relationship with the reality TV star, the foodie was linked to longtime ex-boyfriend Joey Krietemeyer for seven years.
So, is this guy single and ready to mingle? Or just relaxing and taking it slow?
It’s hard to say, considering he and QE‘s grooming expert Jonathan Van Ness recently courted controversy when fans began to suspect they were an item. Those rumors really got their legs after the two uploaded photos kissing each other (below), which naturally sent fans into a frenzy.
Y’all see that caption, though?! Hmm…
However, they quickly debunked any speculation of a romance as Antoni recently confirmed to People they are just “in a very committed friendship.”
We’re sure these guys will find love and happiness on their own in due time and we wish them all the best!
Perezcious readers, got anything to say about this breakup? Who would U like to see Antoni with next?
