AceShowbiz - %cBrielle Biermann% found it so hard to continue her long distance relationship with her baseball player boyfriend, Michael Kopech, that they had to split. The decision was made on Tuesday, March 13, after their 2 years of togetherness.
"She was having a difficult time with the distance, both of them wanted to see more of each other but with his baseball schedule and her shooting schedule and everything going on with the show in Atlanta, they just couldn't seem to make it work anymore," a source tells Us Weekly about the breakup. "They both wish each other the best and ended things amicably."
Michael was absent on Brielle's 21st birthday party last month due to his spring training. To compensate his absence, he posted a photo of the reality star with balloons on his Instagram page on February 25. He captioned it with a birthday message, "Happy 21ST to my favorite person!! I'm blessed to be able to grow with you & I'm excited to see where our future takes us. I love you so much and I'm so thankful for you, @briellebiermann."
Their breakup was a sad story as they had been in the relationship for a long time. In an interview with TooFab, she even mentioned that she was ready for marriage. She said, "If he proposed to me tomorrow, I'd say yes."
Brielle spent her past weekend in Los Angeles with her mom, %cKim Zolciak%, attending %cKhloe Kardashian%'s baby shower. She also attended Khloe's friend %cMalika Haqq%'s birthday party.
Brielle is busy following her mother's footstep to be a reality TV star. She was paid $10,000 per episode for the 12 episodes of season six of "Don't Be Tardy...". Moreover, in the interview, she said, "I actually tweeted %cAndy Cohen% a little while ago. I said we should start up a 'Real Housewives of Chicago' because if Michael gets to the Major Leagues this year. I mean, we're not married, but I'm sure in a couple years, if Andy Cohen wants to start that franchise up, I'll be down. He can give me a call."
