Disney’s Shake It Up star, Haley Lu Richardson revealed she secretly split up with her fiance Brett Dier two years ago.
The actress, 27, finally opened up about her breakup on her official Instagram handle, where she said she was quite ready to go public with the break-up.
Haley and Brett had been dating for almost 7 years when she suddenly proposed to him in 2018. However, 2 years into their engagement, she disclosed that the couple quietly broke up after spending 9 months together.
She shared a snap of her posing with Brett and wrote, “Hey guys, this is me and Brett and we actually parted ways 2 years ago.”
Haley further added, “Life goes on and we both are doing pretty well… I am glad to have the last 2 years’ time to heal and grow without the knowledge of the internet, But we kinda wanted to share it now.”

Previously, The White Lotus star elucidated how she proposed to her love, Brett during her appearance on Busy Tonight in 2019. She said at the moment that nothing was planned, which astounded the host Busy Philipps and her co-host Cole Sprouse, with whom she starred in the movie Five Feet Apart.
“Neither of us was a crazy romantic type, so I just asked and nothing was planned.”
“He was sitting there eating a pizza, cracking a joke that Shia Labeouf had said in one of her interviews, and he was pretending to be her, explaining this joke to me,” she continued, “For some reason, I cut him off and asked, “Wanna marry me?”
Cole suddenly chimed in and said, “You married Shia Labeouf.”
“Maybe that landed us in the mood and yeah, we are engaged now, ” she said after giggling at what Cole said earlier.
In an interview, the host asked her about marriage and she said, “We just want enough time,” implying that the pair was in no rush. She also revealed that they both were having trouble with calling each other fiance. According to her, it was too “pretentious” to say that and neither of them was used to it.
Finally, she concluded by saying that they will get married one day and revealed that they were still calling each other girlfriend and boyfriend.
