She wanted to be with a woman beacause she is a Lesbian. Not with a woman who is trying to turn herself into a man.
God speed to both of them.

Well DUH - she's a lesbo so she obviously wants a woman not a man or man/she freak. Very weird to be looking at a male face but feeling boobs and a vayga

TMZ has not only drank the Kool-Aid, but serving it to you guys in the hopes of furthering the gay agenda of normalizing insanity. "Chaz", the bearded woman, is just that-a woman who decided to look and act like a man---she's a lesbian. Stop calling and referring to her as "him" and all the rest of that BS. and of course according to the Political Correctness hand bod, if you don't buy into this nonsense, you're called, "HOMOPHOBIC." That's fine, I'm homophobic because I refuse to buy into this demotic social engineer and you're "crazy" for defending and believing that SUDDENLY defiance is normal and those who chose to not to be deceived are "intolerant." You guys would have been putty in the Nazi's hands.

Their relationship must have been a pressure cooker. Regardless of what we think, Chaz is a human being and deserves to find happiness. I hope he made the right decision and doesn't end up worse off. Good luck to them both ~ VERY unique situation.

So sorry to hear this for both of them but glad chaz decided they would never agree to the prenup. Most people knowing there girlfriend had and has drinking problem as bad as she did would go ahead and marry anyway. Good for him. Chaz you used your head, what a great man you are. You have been with her for 13 yrs and better to know now than later. Good luck in the future. Your a great man.

"SHE" should have spent the money on some psychotherapy instead of that ring. Sad life.

DWTS obviously didn't pay off? No spin off invite to do another show on tv? I wonder why . . .

Uh yeah. Can't decide what sex you really are, so can't really decide who you want to spend your life with. So sad. Are you now going to decide to be a female? We don't want you. Neither do the men, so, what are you? Do you even know? God bless that dumb woman for putting up with you because she though there was going to be a payday. Oh well. Guess she bet wrong. Like going to the casino and your sexuality. There is so much more wrong with you and it has nothing to do with whether you have a penis or not. Just an angry [person] with a lot of family issues. (How you live and who you are or aren't start at home.) Sorry Cher.

I'm not surprised. If a person prefers one gender, having a partner change from the gender you prefer to another gender can be rough on a relationship. Sometimes, love isn't enough to make ANY relationship work. I hope they both find happiness.

She became a he and she's a lesbian. So it's rather obvious that she now has nothing in common with he. Who didn't see this coming?

I'm not exactly sure what Chaz's transgendering has to do with his break up? Yes, his ex girlfriend is a lesbian, but that doesn't mean Chaz doesn't deserve to look and be portrayed as the person he is on the inside. Everyone who has something negative to say about him based on his gender is a HUGE homophobe and a terrible person. The LGBTQ community struggles enough without all of you making it worse with bull**** like this. Chaz deserves to be happy seeing as he is a real human being like the rest of us. His ex also deserves happiness. At the end of the day we're all people, we're all equal, and we all deserve the same respect and happiness. Grow up if you think differently based on gender, sexual orientation, race, religion...ect.
