The “Stealing Cinderella” artist Chuck Wicks breaks the silence and reveals why he and Julianne Hough broke up a decade ago.
Recently Chuck discussed about his relationship with Julianne on the Dec 14 episode of his podcast “Talk to Chuck”. In that podcast, he discussed his split from Julianne. He mentioned that there was a lot of drama at the end of his relationship with Julianne Hough and it wasn’t as rosy as the two made it seem.
Chuck and Julianne competed on “Dancing With The Stars” in 2009. It is thought that the duo was paired on the set of DWTS. But they actually got together earlier. Chuck explained that they got close when they both went on a tour with Brad Paisley. Chuck also explained that all things between them were great in their professional lives. But he thinks that their romance wasn’t built to last.
Chuck said, “You go out there, we’re both loving life, we’re on a high because we’re both, our careers were going great. You know, we bought a house together, did all these things and then out of nowhere you find out that they’re not the person that you thought they were and you break up. And then I had to…everybody wants to know why.”
He also explained, “And, you know, I found myself doing a CMA red carpet and we made a pact together to basically lie, to say, no, we just wanted to part ways, everything’s fine. It wasn’t fine. S–t hit the fan.”
Chuck continued, “You know, I’m not going to throw anybody under the bus but it wasn’t my fault. So you find yourself when you’re in love, everything’s great, people are loving watching you on Instagram, oh this is the perfect couple, couple goals and all this stuff. But then, man, if something goes wrong you gotta face that too.”
However, at the time of the split, Julianne said, “We’re both just really, really busy with our careers, and we spend a lot of time apart from each other, so we’re just taking a little break right now…Honestly, Chuck and I are such good friends—we still hang out all the time, and we’re still writing together.”
