Cooley, who owns West Hollywood’s The Abbey and The Chapel at the Abbey, announced his engagement to boyfriend Leonet Esparza Osario, on social media in late December. A wedding date was never set.

Cooley, who was vacationing with Osario in Montreal in late September, posted a photo of Osario and the trip on social media.

“Yes, x fiancee do still have fun!,” Cooley wrote on Instagram and Facebook.

It’s unclear when the couple split. Cooley’s spokesman, Brian Rosman, wouldn’t comment.

During one episode of “What Happens at the Abbey,” Cooley and Osario are seen walking hand in hand, but Osario isn’t identified.
