Inside The Breakup Of Brandi Passante And Jarrod Schulz From Storage Wars

There's nothing like flipping through the channels late at night and catching a joyful rerun of Storage Wars. Although fans of the show have grown to love the savage entrepreneurs, especially the ever-so-relatable couple of Brandi Passante and Jarrod Schulz, the pair has sadly gone their separate ways. In fact, the pair broke up sometime in 2018, which was revealed by Brandi during a Facebook Live interview in June 2020 (via TV Show Ace). Until then, the two were able to keep their split under wraps, probably because filing for divorce, which typically acts as a notification to the media, wasn't necessary. The exes were never married, you see, although they did share a business and welcome two children together.

Nowadays, Brandi describes herself as a single mom with a lot on her plate, revealing both of her children struggle with medical issues. As for Jarrod, it looks like he set his sights on promoting his bar, but he's been silent on social media since June 2020. Here's what else we know about the split.

All of their onscreen bickering might have led to Brandi and Jarrod's split

As Storage Wars' resident couple who loved to hate each other, it seems Brandi Passante and Jarrod Schultz's bickering might not have been as playful as we thought and that some of the tension continued when the cameras weren't rolling. Fans of the show will remember Brandi's frequent eye rolls at Jarrod, especially if he bought a storage locker they didn't agree on. She was also frequently seen giving the sigh of a married woman whose husband left the toilet seat up — again. While we chalked up their tension to marital antics, it looks like Brandi really was over her constant disagreements with Jarrod.

Since Jarrod and Brandi are pretty private, considering they managed to conceal their breakup from us for two years, it's unclear exactly what went wrong between them and how it all went down, per TV Show Ace. Despite what might have transpired between Brandi and Jarrod, it looks like the single mom is living her best life. She often posts photos from good times and shares an occasional selfie showing off her signature soft smile. Although we loved Brandi and Jarrod as a couple, we assume their split was for the best.

Are Brandi and Jarrod dating anyone post-breakup?

Since Brandi Passante and Jarrod Schulz went their separate ways, Jarrod moved on to girlfriend Rochel Beckman. He first shared the news of his relationship in January 2020 by posting a photo of the two on Facebook. From a look at Rochel's Facebook page, they still appear to be going strong.

As for Brandi, she opened up about her love life during a YouTube interview with "Spirit Talk" in February 2021. Revealing she isn't seeing anyone "in particular," she said she's "just going with the flow right now." She seemingly referenced the aftermath of her split, stating, "I was describing it as sort of emotionally dead inside, you know? Kind of trying to find my place." Adding, "My therapist was, like, 'Stop calling it emotionally dead inside, you're just closed off, you know, for a little bit. But, it'll come back to you.'"

Discussing her transition from duo to solo, she admitted, "I wasn't really allowed to have an identity for many, many years. And so these last couple of years I'm kind of coming into my own and figuring out who I am. I just don't have an attachment to anyone." Although she currently has her guard up, she said she has tested the waters. "I definitely dated and things like that," she shared. "Right now it's not a big, um — it's not something I'm really trying hard to seek out. I'm waiting until I can feel an attachment to someone."
