Queer Eye’s Antoni splits from boyfriend Trace Lehnhoff

Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski is now officially single, having split from his boyfriend Trace Lehnhoff after a year of dating.

The Netflix star confirmed the break up on Tuesday (August 6) after deleting all photos of Lehnhoff from his Instagram account.

In an interview with PeoplePorowski said: “I’m single now and it’s been a good opportunity to connect with friends.”

An inside source added: “The relationship ran its course. Things just didn’t work out and he is concentrating on work.”

Porowski, 35, and the interior designer began dating in September 2018 after meeting through an Instagram direct message. The couple reached the ‘Instagram official’ milestone in December.

The “first Fab Five couple”?

The news of the split comes amidst rumours that Porowski and his Queer Eye co-star Jonathan Van Ness are dating.

The pair have been teasing their Instagram followers with a picture of them kissing, accompanied by a couple’s Instagram page called @jvntoni.

On the account the twosome post photos of each other in various poses, including one of them brushing their teeth together, captioned: “Sleepy time getting ready for bed with Bae.”

Last week their fellow Queer Eye star Karamo Brown sent fans into a frenzy after confirming Van Ness and Porowski were the “first Fab Five couple.”

And as the Fab Five appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on July 30, fans noted that the two were holding hands throughout.

But after being flooded with questions, the pair officially denied the rumours.

On August 1 Van Ness tweeted: “For clarification, @antoni and I are a couple…. of very close friends who run a satirical couple account and may fall in love someday, but that day is not necessarily today.”

Many fans still remain hopeful, and given that Van Ness is the only other member of the Fab Five who is currently single, Porowski’s new relationship status is bound to stir further speculation.
