While letting fans in on the news, he assured that it was “a mutual decision. We both decided to go our separate ways,” he said.
“Nothing bad happened, there’s no drama whatsoever. Tessa is an amazing woman, I have nothing but great things to say about her.”
Despite the relationship itself being kept under wraps at first, Peay soon appeared in content more and more frequently in Stradman’s everyday life. After more than a year together, fans quickly started to notice when she was no longer on camera.
“Sometimes relationships last forever… Sometimes they don’t,” Stradman explained in his April 22 upload. “It doesn’t mean it wasn’t meaningful or that I don’t care about her anymore. It just didn’t work out for the long term.”
Ultimately, while the two are no longer together, it wasn’t an ugly breakup despite being in the public eye. The former couple are still “great friends” and there’s no resentment whatsoever.
