Comedienne and Chelsea Lately hostess, Chelsea Handler and her hoteliere boyfriend Andre Balazas are done. At least that is what an insider recently reported... so, it's that time again: watch out world, Chelsea is single!
The unnamed source revealed the details of the split in an exclusive interview with Life & Style magazine. The source stated: "[Andre's] been telling his friends they're done - they're definitely over." And to fuel the break up chatter, Chelsea stopped wearing a compass necklace given to her by her former beau.
The former pair - who were very much the opposite - had to deal with not only their differences but also the glare of the spotlight and the strain of maintaining a long distance relationship while juggling high power careers...plus two children - as Andre has. The split follows Handler's very public declaration of her feelings for Andre on Oprah's Next Chapter. She offered: "I've met my match. We couldn't be more opposite. I bring out the stupidity in him probably. We were talking about living our lives together, my boyfriend and I. We've broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and we're trying to figure out how to live a life together. It's just so hard, and it's just so taxing. But when you really want to be with someone, you can make that work - but you don't want it to be uneven."
As for how each is doing post-break up, Andre was spotted at a NYC Hugo Boss event with his bros and as for Chelsea, the show must go on. In fact, she just aired her show with guest Canadian singer Drake during which she and the twenty six year old exchanged heavy flirtation, innuendo, and chemistry.

Perhaps the easiest way for her to get over Andre is to move on with Drizzy (and help him, in turn, get over Rihanna)?!?!?
