After two years of dating and an engagement, Kelly Osbourne and her boyfriend Matthew Mosshart called it quits.
Here is what you need to know about the reality star and vegan chef’s relationship and breakup.
1. The Split Was Amicable
A rep for Osbourne first broke news of the split to US Weekly, saying:
The split is amicable and the pair continue to have nothing but the utmost respect for one another. Kelly is looking forward to a new year full of fresh beginnings. No further comments will be provided by all parties and we request privacy, decorum and space from the press but don’t expect it.
The sudden split came after a July 2013 proposal in Anguilla. They first met in 2011 at Kate Moss’ wedding. Osbourne gushed to the Daily Mail in December of 2013, saying, “But when I met Matthew everything changed and I realized I’d never been in love before.”
2. He’s a Vegan Chef Who Helped Her Lose Weight
Osbourne posted this on Instagram, obviously a play on her and her then-boyfriend’s healthy lifestyle. In fact, Osbourne had once credited her beau for her dramatic weight loss. Of her then-63-pound slim down, she told the Daily Mail, “That’s because he cooks for me! He’s a vegan chef, so he makes sure that I eat healthily.”
Besides ringing in the new year as a couple, they also were together for Christmas. Weeks ago, she posted a holiday-themed photo of the two sporting Christmas sweaters, excited over a Boyzone concert that evening.
3. The Night the News Broke, Kelly Went Out With Bieber
The purple haired daughter of Ozzy shared this picture on Instagram soon after the breakup was announced. The playful pals chose graffiti as their backdrop.
4. Both Seem to Have Positive Outlooks
its all about perception sometimes the bad things that happen in life aren't really bad at all especially when you learn something from it!

The day the world heard, Kelly tweeted this, which seems to imply that she is getting over her new breakup.
The day after Kelly’s inspirational words, in what seems like a response to her, Matthew posted this caption, “The bottom looks positive #yes.”
5. Sharon Weighed In
It seems that the couple had the support of Sharon Osbourne, who had only positive things to say about her almost son-in-law.
As a co host of The Talk, Kelly’s mom had this to say on today’s show:
Matthew is a lovely guy. They had two great years together of fun and love, and for me, that’s why engagements are so important. Engagements are a test run, aren’t they? And so it didn’t work for whatever reason, but they are still good friends and will continue to be. It’s just not right for them right now.
