Last Spring, actress and activist Laverne Cox revealed her boyfriend, Kyle Draper to the world. She had been talking about him before then, but this past April, she showed the two of them cosied up and it was clear he was bae.

Now, a year later and nearly two years since their relationship began, Cox has shared that the two are no longer together.

On her Instagram page, Cox posted a video of the two together with a caption discussing the disillusion of their relationship. She said that the only reason she shared the news of their split was because people were so invested in seeing a Black trans woman loved publicly.

Cox said, “After much soul searching and tears from both of us, we have decided it’s time for us to go our separate ways. We decided we should make a public statement since our relationship was public in ways neither of us anticipated. This is that public statement. We know our relationship meant so much to so many people, especially trans folks, giving them hope that this kind of love is possible for them as well.”

Cox has shared that before her relationship with Kyle

Apparently, there is no beef between the two. Laverne said both she and Kyle wanted their breakup to reflect the quality of their relationship.

You can read her full caption in the post below.

We’re wishing Cox the best.
