Jill Martin splits from fiance Erik Brooks
The contributor for Today, Jill Martin, and her fiance Erik Brooks have called off their engagement. They have split, and Page Six has confirmed.
The pair was in self-isolation together at Jill’s home in the Hamptons. After several weeks together, Erik left for Boston to be with his children. Jill was photographed without her engagement ring.
And she told Page Six:
“This pandemic has taken a toll on so many aspects of life — it’s such a difficult time for everyone. Erik is the most magnificent person, but with him living in Boston with his children, and me living in New York, the distance just became too difficult for us to maintain the kind of relationship that’s important to us both. He is an amazing man, and I wish him nothing but the best.”
The relationship timeline of the couple
Jill and Erik had met on a dating app. This was two years back ad they started a relationship. The two came together on Today Show in late March. They talked about the extra stress that is on couples during the lockdown.
Jill had said at that time:
“Erik and I have never spent so much concentrated time together, we’ve been here basically alone for three weeks 24/7…and like many couples we’ve had a couple of blow ups….I’d would say they were kind of major blow ups, it was kind of tough…These are unprecedented times.”
Jill admitted that the two are working on their relationship. But it appears that things did not work out.
Erik works in private equity. They engaged in May 2019 in the Hamptons.
