Vanderpump Rules’ James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss Split And Call Off Engagement

The former couple have broken up after five years of dating and a seven-month engagement.

James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss released a joint statement on their separate Instagram pages on Sunday that they have called it quits as well as calling off their engagement.

“After these 5 wonderful years we had together, we decided we have two different goals and made the decision to call off the engagement.”

“We love each other very much, but we aren’t in love anymore. We want nothing but the best for each other so please keep any thoughts positive. Sending Love,” the statement concluded.

According to PEOPLE, the pair broke up while shooting the Bravo show’s 9th season reunion in Los Angeles on Friday, and Leviss is claimed to have returned the engagement ring on camera and was spotted without it later that evening at dinner.

The two got engaged in May when Kennedy proposed with a Coachella-themed proposal. They both announced their engagement with a heartfelt social media commemoration earlier this year.

“James proposed at the iconic Empire Polo Fields of ‘RACHELLA’ Friday night… and I said YES! I’m over the Coachella moon ✨🌵🌙 #RACHELLA,” Leviss originally posted with a set of memorable images from the occasion. Kennedy also posted a photo of the two kissing on Instagram to mark the occasion and captioned the photo, “THE LOVE OF MY LIFE, said yes. 💍 💕 #RACHELLA.”

A selfie of James and Raquel in a studio was featured in their postings and just last week, the cast of Vanderpump Rules recorded the season nine reunion program.

Reactions to Vanderpump Rules' James & Raquel Part Ways

As much as Kennedy has tried to change, and the progress he has made, I still feel that Raquel does deserve better. Hope this doesn’t cause James to relapse but, Raquel deserves someone that consistently treats her right

@DebiMossScheler

Raquel deserves better, so I hope this was on her terms.
