The once loved up couple have ended their engagement three months before their wedding

Now can confirm that X Factor lovebirds Chloe Jasmine Whichello and Stevi Ritchie have split. Citing ‘busy work schedules’ the couple have ended their engagement just three months before they were due to tie the knot.

Worryingly, insiders claim that Chloe ended their relationship for different reasons. ‘Chloe has decided to end her engagement,’ an insider told the Mirror. ‘The relationship became abusive and volatile causing her to heavily relapse into alcohol abuse. She had to get out of the relationship. It became very toxic.’










The news didn’t come as a shock for some, with some critics claiming their romance was a sham from the start.


After hooking up on The X Factor back in 2014, the couple quickly moved in together, before Stevi proposed last July.  After the news of their engagement went public, Stevi could barely contain his excited when asked about their big day.

‘I know our wedding, and date, and venue, which I can’t really say,’ Stevie said when asked about the plans. ‘It’s July. It’s really posh, prim, loads of celebs are coming. Simon [Cowell] and Cheryl [Fernandez-Versini] are the main ones. Top of the crop for them, they’re going to get everything.’

The singer even had the honeymoon planned out, adding: ‘I’m hoping somewhere really nice like Mauritius, that would be good.’

Neither Stevie or Chloe have publicly commented on the split.
