On Sept. 27, 2023, Madeline crawled into bed with host Alex Cooper for a very cozy episode of Call Her Daddy. While wearing matching CHD sweatshirts, Madeline went into details about her breakup which ended a couple of months ago.
First and foremost, it was Madeline's decision which she wanted to point out as the internet unfairly assumed she was the dumpee. "I made the final call," she said.
The pair met in 2021 and have "been in some sort of entanglement ever since," shared Madeline. The decision to end things was not sudden for Madeline who knew for "quite a while" the relationship wasn't good.
There was a toxic back-and-forth element to it that was almost addictive. Despite admitting to each other that they were bad for each other, it was difficult to quit.
What ultimately led to what is hopefully the last breakup, is Madeline making a new friend who in her words, "commands you to be a good person."
While chatting with thew new pal, Madeline let something slip about the relationship that was humbling. Like holding up a dirty mirror, Madeline knew it was time to pull the plug.
