Page Six is reporting that Terry Richardson and Audrey Gelman have broken up after 3 years of dating, and we have two thoughts on the matter: 1. FINALLY 2. What took so long?
According to their source, the pair had been living together in New York, but, “They broke up a few months ago and are now living apart.”
Over the course of their relationship, we’ve wondered what could possibly drive 26-year-old Gelman, a spokeswoman for New York City Comptroller-elect Scott Stringer and Girls cameo star, to date the most politically-incorrect man on the planet. Not only did it strike us as an obvious conflict of interest for her career, but it was sad to see such a smart, successful young woman on the arm of man who’s become synonymous with misogyny cloaked as art. Furthermore, it always kind of irked us to see Gelman’s best friend Lena Dunham, a modern figure of feminism, hanging out with Richardson.
Now this is only our speculation, but we don’t think it’s exactly a coincidence that the pair allegedly broke up amidst the backlash from his controversial shoot with Miley Cyrus and the subsequent launch of the Change.org petition against Richardson, which called upon major brands and magazines to stop condoning Richardson’s actions by giving him work. In addition to gaining over 18,000 supporters, it has re-introduced the public to all of the sexual harassment claims from women who have worked with him.
Much like R.Kelly as of late, Richardson’s loathsome past is finally back to haunt him.
