Laverne Cox & Boyfriend Kyle Draper Split After Almost 2 Years of Dating

Laverne Cox & Boyfriend Kyle Draper Split After Almost 2 Years of Dating

Laverne Cox and her boyfriend Kyle Draper have gone their separate ways after first starting to date in July of 2017.

The 47-year-old actress posted the news on her Instagram, writing, “@thekyledraper and I have broken up. After much soul searching and tears from both of us, we have decided it’s time for us to go our separate ways. We decided we should make a public statement since our relationship was public in ways neither of us anticipated. This is that public statement.”

Laverne continued, “We know our relationship meant so much to so many people, especially trans folks, giving them hope that this kind of love is possible for them as well. That hope, the hope for love has not waned for me in the face of this breakup but rather is fortified. Knowing that we are both capable of giving and receiving love with this level of kindness, respect, trust, affection, depth, and intensity has been so healing and life affirming for us both. I am so grateful we were open to love and for every moment we had together. We have both grown in innumerable ways as a result. Now its just time to move on separately. We both want a breakup that honors and respects the quality of our relationship and the love we shared. Its possible.”

The last photos we have of Laverne Cox and Kyle Draper are from over the holidays this past year.
