Once hailed as the Young Guns, Jarrod Schulz and his ex-partner, Brandi Passante, enamored Storage Wars fans with their fiery dynamic. They garnered enormous praise over the years, adeptly hiding the real tensions playing out behind the scenes.
Jarrod and Brandi publicly announced their split on the Season 13 premiere of Storage Wars, even though they parted ways in November 2018. So, how are they now? What happened to Jarrod since the breakup?
So, what happened to Jarrod Schulz on 'Storage Wars'?
Jarrod came under scrutiny in the spring of 2021 after attacking his ex-partner, Brandi Passante.
The stars bumped into each other at a bar in Orange County, Calif., on April 30, 2021, and the encounter quickly snowballed into a conflict. Apparently, Brandi asked Jarrod to leave the venue. He refused, pushing her and yelling at her and her friends instead.
Jarrod was arrested and charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic violence battery in May 2021, per TMZ.
Jarrod hasn't posted much on social media since then.
He occasionally takes it to Instagram to promote events at The Rush Bar and Grill in Lake Forest, Calif. In June 2021, he shared a casual snap taken during a trip to the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa in Lake Arrowhead, Calif., with his then-girlfriend, Rochel Beckman. Jarrod's last Instagram photo was posted in May 2022 and also featured Rochel.
Meanwhile, his ex-wife Brandi has been slightly more active on social media.
On Oct. 3, 2021, she unveiled a new tattoo — the word "Free," with a sparrow-like bird flying away from the second "e" on her middle finger.
"To me, [this tattoo] means that somehow, by the grace of God, I managed to escape a very difficult situation that so many people fall victim to," Brandi captioned the post. "I will be eternally grateful, for the life and freedom, without fear that I get to live now. I am also grateful for the empathy and grace, that I am able to give others as a result of the things, that I have endured."
She also seems to have moved on from her ex and is in a relationship with Clifford Beaver. In a touching Instagram post, Clifford gushed about Brandi, writing, "Happy birthday Brandi. I love you so much and happy we found each other."
Brandi is also starring in Season 15 of Storage Wars alongside Ivy Calvin, Darrell Sheets, and Barry Weiss. Jarrod did not return for the latest season.
