Brett Oppenheim is breaking his silence after girlfriend Tina Louise revealed on Tuesday that they’d split just eight months after going public with their romance.

The 44-year-old Selling Sunset star confirmed the news when a fan asked if he ‘was single’ during an Instagram Story Q&A.

Being that he’d held the Q&A session to answer real estate related questions, Brett initially appeared to be reluctant to discuss his personal life. 

‘OK, this question has absolutely nothing to do with real estate, but I will answer it,’ he began.

‘As of very recently, actually, yes,’ Brett confirmed , before swiftly moving onto other questions.

Hours prior, Tina used her own Instagram to confirm rumors that had been swirling for weeks about their breakup.

The 40-year-old tattooed model, who hails from Australia but now lives in LA, said they ‘remain very good friends’ after ending their whirlwind romance of less than a year. 

‘If no boyfriend, what’s your ties to Selling Sunset?’ a fan asked her. 

‘Brett is my ex, but we remain very good friends,’ she replied, sharing a throwback photo of the pair kissing on holiday together.

It comes after Tina was seen with a ‘Brett’ tattoo on her ring finger in October.

Before that, the pair were pictured together on several occasions, including when Tina accompanied Brett on a double date with his Selling Sunset co-stars in June.

The couple joined Mary Fitzgerald and Romain Bonnet at Westlake Village Inn in LA.

Brett, who left the Oppenheim Group last year to form his own brokerage, first went Instagram official with Tina in April. 

For several months last year, Tina was regularly in the headlines for her romance with TV heart-throb Brian Austin Green.

They became an item in May 2020, shortly after the Beverly Hills, 90210 star confirmed his split from actress wife Megan Fox.

After their fling ended, Tina was pictured kissing Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs on a beach in Malibu but they never confirmed they were dating.

In another blow to the Selling Sunset fanbase, Brett’s brother Jason regretfully announced that he and costar Chrishell Stause had decided to end their relationship. 

News broke of their breakup Tuesday just five months after their romance went public, but it is thought that they were an item for a total of seven months.

Jason has originally confirmed the romance with Chrishell during an Italian holiday with their Selling Sunset co-stars over the summer.

In an Instagram post, he called her ‘the most amazing girlfriend I’ve ever had’ and said their romance was ‘the happiest and most fulfilling relationship of my life.’

Jason said that he and the actress ‘different wants regarding a family’ were to blame.

He gushed: ‘Chrishell is an exceptional human being and loving her and having her in my life is one of the best things that has ever happened to me.’ 

In an Instagram statement Chrishell, 40, attributed the split to ‘our ideas of family ultimately not being aligned,’ pointing out: ‘Men have the luxury of time that women don’t and that’s just the way it goes.’ 

‘I have tried to embrace the world I have found myself in and that includes being open and honest about my relationship,’ her statement began.

‘It felt scary and terrifying knowing that it may not end in what society deems a success and what I am ultimately looking for. But after many long heartfelt talks, I am choosing to see it as a success no matter what label is attached to it publicly.’ 

She continued. ‘Jason was and is my best friend, and other than our ideas for family ultimately not being aligned, the amount of respect and love we have for each other will not change going forward.’ 

Chrishell, who was once married to This Is Us beefcake Justin Hartley, added: ‘Men have the luxury of time that women don’t and that’s just the way it goes. All of that being said, navigating this public terrain is difficult and I am just trying my best.’

The reality star claimed: ‘No one would rather only speak about work related things more than me. But I understand this comes with it and I will always love and be extremely grateful for the opportunities I have been given,’ she allowed.

‘Although my initial reaction to a private situation was to not speak on it, sometimes it’s easier to just live transparently because we only get one chance at this life. I very much hope to one day have a family and decisions I make at this point are with that goal in mind. Thank you for the kindness and support to those that understand.’

She concluded: ‘And thank you Jason for the most incredible relationship and for consistently being honest with me even when it hurts.’
