Playing 'Orange Is the New Black' Star Lea DeLaria Ends Engagement to Chelsea Fairless

Lea DeLaria and fiancee Chelsea Fairless have called it quits.

The Orange Is the New Black star and Fairless announced the split by sharing a video on Instagram that had the former couple photoshopped into Liza Minnelli and David Gest's wedding photo, which also featured the late Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor. The 1987 song “It Must Have Been Love" plays over the video.

"Apparently this was an eerily prophetic choice of engagement photo as our relationship has since gone the way of David and Liza, with one small exception: our split is amicable," DeLaria captioned the image. "Please exclude us from the tragic and basic celebrity breakup narrative."

The 58-year-old actress added, "We were happy together for four years and will remain in each other's lives. In fact, we look forward to finding new ways to torture each other. We would like to thank our incredible friends and families for their love and support."

DeLaria popped the question after last year's SAG Awards, and announced her engagement on Facebook in February, noting that her wedding would either be "the event of the season" or "a total s**t show.”
