‘This Is Us’ Alum Chrissy Metz and Boyfriend Bradley Collins ‘Amicably’ Split After 3 Years Together

This Is Us alum Chrissy Metz and her boyfriend of more than three years, Bradley Collins, have broken up.

“After three and a half years together, we’ve decided to end our romantic relationship amicably,” Metz, 43, and Collins wrote in a joint Instagram statement on Friday, October 6. “While we continue to love each other very much, we believe this is the best path for us both.”

Their statement concluded: “We still have books to write, songs to sing, and a special friendship to keep us in each other’s lives forever.”

The Emmy nominee and the musician released their debut children’s book, When I Talk to God, I Talk About You, earlier this year.

While many celeb couples have gone the distance in Hollywood, other romances haven’t stood the test of time. Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott sparked an on-again, off-again relationship in 2017, welcoming two children: daughter Stormi and a son, whose name they have yet to reveal, in February 2018 and February 2022, respectively. Us Weekly broke […]

“It was interesting because I was shooting the last season of the show, This Is Us, and Bradley was here in Nashville and so we would collaborate on Zoom or through phone calls and FaceTime,” Metz exclusively told Us Weekly in April of their joint writing process. “It was fun because sort of every day was different and we were trying to simplify the story ‘cause we [had many] different versions.”

In trying to pare down the number of story lines, Metz and Collins learned how to effectively communicate their respective opinions.

“You really sort of come up against, like, patience and all the things that you look for in a partner that you’re like, ‘OK, how are we gonna do this together?’” she recalled to Us. “And so we learned a lot about each other and I think our relationship by doing such a cool and massive project as we started dating.”

Metz and Collins met via dating app Bumble amid the coronavirus pandemic, publicly debuting their romance in October 2020.

“Most of her [profile] photos were Getty Images and I just didn’t know if it was actually her or not,” Collins revealed in April, noting he initially thought Metz’s profile was a catfish in disguise. “I also know that those are readily available [but] once we started talking, I 100 percent knew it was her. She was what she said she was.”

Collins “definitely” was aware of Metz’s career before swiping right — he had seen her on Entourage prior to This Is Us — but it was her down-to-earth personality that won him over.

‘I definitely knew who she was, but I wanted to get to know her too,” he gushed to Us at the time. “And I realized that she is exactly who everyone thinks she is. She’s wonderful.”
