Surely she can do better than that thing.

She was probably in love with Chastidy but fell out of love with this Chaz. When Chaz asked Elia to marry her she probably felt trapped because Chaz was no longer the girl she fell in love with and she probably could not make that kind of commitment for life even for the money. If Chastidy took the boobs away, what did Elia get in the bargain? A girlfriend that was now an itfriend because it had not turned into a guy all the way. She was stranded in the inbetween stage between Male and Female. It had a beard and a flat chest but it had all the plumbing of a female. Elia was confused, Chaz took away something she could love and cuddle and replace it with stubble. So I think Elia was being true to herself as a lesbian and broke up with "Chaz" to be with what she was comfortable with, another woman.

They've been together since 1999???? I guess Chaz was still a girl back then. No wonder she walked. She's pretty hot, another lipstick lesbian will get her before she knows it.

Jennifer Elia is a lesbian, that is, she is attracted to women, and that was the basis for her relationship with Chaz, who was then a female, and lesbian. Now Chaz is a "man", what would a lesbian want to do with a "man" ?

As she stated on "Being Chaz", he was acting like a man (read: *******) and I remember her saying something like.. the way you are acting is why I am not with men. Jennifer wants a woman who relishes being a woman, not a woman who is dead set on being a man. But like most transgenders I know, they spend their lives focused on themselves, and they consider their emotional misery and turmoil to be more important to resolve with surgery than finding ways to move past a mental disorder with a support system that has been in place for years.

I'm bummed for Jennifer. All those years supporting her partner through all kinds of crap, and within a year of Chastity becoming Chaz, this happens. What a letdown.

When the 2 met they were two lesbians in love (Chastity and Jennifer). Chastity decided she needed to be a man, which is not what Jennifer is attracted to. I'm surprised that they stayed together this long, but Jennifer probably just wanted to be as supportive of Chaz as possible.

I saw this one coming a mile away. How are you gonna go from a lesbian relationship to a straight one with the same person??? Yeah, that wasn't gonna work for her, Chaz.

Sadly, I saw this coming based on the interviews I had seen of the two of them. Although Jennifer had said she was bisexual, it was clear by her (lack of) answers she was not comfortable with Chastity turning into Chaz. Like so many of you had already said, Jennifer was in love with Chastity first and it must have been hard to no longer have a "woman" by your side.

I know Chaz said gender is not between your legs, but perhaps in this case Jennifer prefers what was (still is) between Chaz's legs ... And what WAS on Chaz's chest. A woman who dresses like a man is one thing (butch), but a woman who is now a man is another. Sorry Chaz.
