Ryan Seacres, longtime American Idol and Live! With Kelly and Ryan host, went through a breakup with his former girlfriend in July 2020, according to The Blast, and it appears that he is currently single.
Seacrest’s dating life was thrust into the public eye when he and his girlfriend, food blogger Shayna Taylor broke up in the summer of 2020. A few months later, rumors swirled that Seacrest wasn’t taking care of himself and was depressed, though Gossip Cop rated those rumors as false.
At the time, there was a rumor that Seacrest would stay home and not talk to anyone “for days on end, ignoring calls from friends and coworkers and only responding to texts.”
Seacrest Reportedly Wanted to get Back Together With his Ex-Girlfriend
According to OK! Magazine, Seacrest wanted to get back together with Taylor as recently as the end of October 2020. At the time, the outlet reported that a source told them Seacrest wanted his ex back in his life.
“He seemed so sure that breaking up was the right thing to do,” the source reportedly said. “But, not having Shayna there to lean on and talk to has really gotten to him. He misses her so much.”
The source also reportedly said that Taylor did not have any interest in getting back together, as Seacrest was much too busy for what she wanted out of a relationship.
“She feels he doesn’t appreciate how much she sacrificed four years ago to move to New York for him,” the source said. “He’s promising to make more time for her, but Shayna’s not going to be messed with a fourth time.”
Seacrest Has Been Single Since Mid-2020
Following the news of the breakup, Taylor took to Instagram to allude to the reasons the relationship may have ended.
“You will never need to convince the right person to love you. No matter what, you cannot change them, make them do the work, or get them to commit to you if they’re not ready to show up,” a quote that she shared read. “Change must be inspired from within, and actions are always louder than words.”
Seacrest is reportedly single now.
