Big Brother 20’s Haleigh Broucher just announced that she and Faysal “Fessy” Shafaat have broken up. They’d been together for over a year-and-a-half after exiting the BB20 house as a couple. Not to mention they’ve gone on plenty of adventures together. Sadly, it just wasn’t working out for the two of them. So, they decided to call it quits and Haleigh explained the reasons why.
Haleigh Broucher & Fessy Shafaat’s Big Brother Romance
Haleigh Broucher and Fessy Shafaat started out Big Brother 20 as nothing more than alliance partners. They were both apart of the FOUTTE alliance. Eventually, they formed a friendship that blossomed into so much more than that. It was more so Fessy chasing after Haleigh than the other way around and the two of them decided to try it out in the last couple weeks they spent in the house.
Unfortunately, when it came down to one week’s evictions, Haleigh and Fessy sat on the Big Brother block next to one another. It was Fessy that lost the vote and exited the house in 9th place only to fail to win his way back in the returning competition. Haleigh didn’t last much longer after that, getting eliminated a couple of weeks later in 9th place. Still, they decided to continue their relationship outside of the house.
Relationship Outside of the BB20 House
When the game was over Haleigh Broucher returned the Texas and Fessy Shafaat returned to Houston. They wanted to try things long-distance and they actually made it work. While Haleigh was finishing school and Fessy was working they took plenty of trips to see each other.
Not only that but they started a YouTube Channel to keep Big Brother fans updated on their lives. They even went skydiving at one point. Also, they took a lot of trips to other places as well. Fessy even took Haleigh to Rome when she graduated from Texas A&M. It seemed like the two of them were going strong. So, what happened?
Big Brother: Haleigh & Fessy Break Up
In a note she wrote to her followers, Haleigh Broucher announced that she and Fessy Shafaat have split up. She said, “it is with a heavy heart that Fes and I have made the decision split ways and focus on ourselves”. Although the decision “was not an easy” one, they tried “everything possible” to make things work. Haleigh says they’re “grateful” for all of the memories it gave them. They “will always” hold special places in each others’ hearts.
Haleigh said the reasoning was that their lives were “moving in different directions”. She revealed it was “better for our mental health” that they separated. Lastly, she thanked her followers for their support and hopes they can “learn to love” her and Fessy separately.
