It’s been a long road of failed romances for Real Housewives of New York alum Tinsley Mortimer. She hoped for a fairytale life in her last RHONY tagline — and when on-again, off-again boyfriend Scott Kluth proposed in November 2019, it seemed like she was going to get what she dreamed of.
However, the pair revealed they had ended their engagement in March 2021. “After  months of engagement, Tinsley and I have ended our relationship, and we have been living independently for the last few months,” Scott told Life & Style in a statement. “This was an incredibly difficult decision, but it is one that I believe is best for both of us. I will always care about Tinsley and I sincerely wish her happiness and success in all that she does in the future.”
The Koupon King proposed to Tinsley in Chicago, where the CouponCabin CEO is based. The socialite was visiting her then-beau from NYC around the holidays when Scott surprised her with a lavish proposal — complete with a stunning vocal performance by Christmas carolers.
“Scott’s apartment is close to where the carolers were,” an insider told Page Six at the time. “They were walking to dinner and they saw these carolers, and they broke into Christina Perri’s ‘A Thousand Years,’ which is their song. It took Tinsley a few seconds to figure out what was going on, but then Scott got down on one knee. He’d organized the whole thing with the carolers in advance.”
The former flames took it slow when it came to wedding planning. Originally, they considered having their nuptials in Japan, “[but] it was really hard to commit to something in May or the beginning of the summer,” Tinsley told Bravo‘s Daily Dish in June 2020. Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Tinsley and Scott had to adjust their expectations for their milestone moment. However, they were in agreement about keeping their big day small.
“Look, if we just even do something at home and it’s just us. We’ll figure it out,” she told Daily Dish. “We’re happy being together and we’ll just see.”
The couple seemed to be headed to happily ever after following three years of ups and downs — but their shocking split certainly hints that they may have had problems behind the scenes. However, this wouldn’t be the first time they broke up, so anything can happen.
