In 2020, Brandi Passante confirmed on "The Dad Diary" that she and partner Jarrod Schulz — the most popular cast member on "Storage Wars" besides Brandi — had been separated for two years. On YouTube, one fan commented, "Was bummed to hear her and Jarrod split up, especially with kids involved."
In 2016, Passante and Schulz bragged about their kids to INQUIRER.NET: their son, Cameron, wanted to become a director or producer, and their daughter, Peyton, was into competitive cheerleading. However, Passante did admit that "Teenagers are tough, especially when you're doing it by yourself."
By January 2020, Passante's life involved more partying, as she was in attendance when UFC fighter Conor McGregor beat Donald Cerrone at U.F.C. 246 in Las Vegas. Leading up to the global pandemic, Passante posted pictures of her hanging out amongst friends at bars.
In 2020, when stay-at-home orders were enacted during the global COVID-19 pandemic, Passante shared with her followers that she was getting prepped for lockdown. Despite her efforts to social distance, Passante revealed in June 2020 that she'd tested positive for COVID.
