My big Fat Fabulous Life: Heartbreak And Hope For Whitney Thore
Whitney Thore was understandably distraught at the news and went so far as to call him “double-faced” before leaving. After the breakup, they had to self-quarantine during the peak of the pandemic, making it difficult to mend the relationship.
Chase Severino tried to arrange a trip to see Thore, but she was too concerned about her mother’s health and well-being to risk time together. Without the opportunity to meet in person, Thore learned the devastating news of Severino’s infidelity over the phone. In a post on Instagram, Whitney Thore shared that Chase Severino had been unfaithful with a woman from his past and had gotten her pregnant . While it’s certainly a heartbreaking story, Whitney Thore has found her way. While practicing her French, she met a new man and is busy enjoying her life. She has posted photos of herself on Instagram while exploring France and her mystery man can be spotted in the background. With her relationship ending well in the rearview mirror, we hope Whitney Thore is happier.
