Relationships are hard and they don’t last forever. Now we have another celebrity split to report. After dating for almost a year, Danica Patrick and Carter Comstock have broken up.
“We were together for a while, and unfortunately it didn’t work, but it doesn’t mean that it wasn’t a really fun time and we didn’t do a lot of really amazing things.” Danica shared this in an interview with People on March 4. “It doesn’t mean that there’s something wrong with either of us. It’s just a matter of finding someone who you can stand the test of time with.”
Danica told the outlet that Comstock is a “really amazing guy” and “super sweet.” She also shared that they broke up several months ago.
Patrick and Comstock made their relationship official on Instagram in April 2021. “We both love to travel and we’re both super open-minded, and I had this sort of grand vision for finding someone I could just sit on the couch with and, like, have a glass of wine and just literally come up with any topic at all, simple or complicated,” she shared during an appearance on Extra back then. “Just go, ‘Let’s talk about a tree’ and just go for two hours on the nature of a tree… I just always imagined how great it would be to find someone to sit on the couch and talk with for hours, and that’s just what we do.”
A source told Us Weekly that the co-founders of Beam a wellness brand had set the couple up. Patrick and Comstock had invested in the wellness brand.
“They took their relationship slow for four months and decided to be exclusive in April,” the source added in April 2021. “She’s very happy.”
“[It’s about] finding someone that has that kind of quality … and that also fits you in so many ways,” Danica told the US. She also said that relationships are not easy and take a lot of work. She added, “That’s the other part is, you know, you’ve got to like doing everything together.”
She told the outlet “knowing yourself” makes communication with a partner even easier. “It’s more indicative of the work that this person has done before you ever met them. You know, the idea that you’re going to change someone is a pipe dream. Like, it’s just … someone has to want to change for themselves.”
We’ll have to see what happens next for them, but it seems that they are both well off enough to make it on their own.
