We have mutually decided that it is best for us to move forward in life AS FRIENDS and have made this decision with love in our hearts, respect for each other, and appreciation for the time we've shared together. Please keep us in your prayers as we go through this transition. Thank you for being there for us ALL THESE YEARS! We love you and appreciate you SO MUCH! 🙏🏽❤ Tracey and Deion.

Love u Tracey and You've been a true blessing to me. I appreciate the times we've shared and they laughs we've had.

Edmonds and Sanders’ relationship was admired for its longevity as it began in 2012. After seven years of dating, the two decided to get engaged in 2019 and often shared glimpses of their lovely romance with each other.

This is the biggest reason why their break-up news came as a complete shock to everyone. From their interaction on Instagram post-breakup, the two seem to have ended things on the right foot, with no grudges towards each other.

How did Edmonds and Sanders’ love story begin?

The powerhouse couple, Sanders and Edmonds, met at a movie premiere party that she produced in 2012, according to People magazine. After just a brief conversation, the NFL legend got totally fascinated by her and asked for a friend for her business card.

As both of them are at an age where they don’t demand much from each other, expect love and affection. Edmonds, who shares a 2016 Daytime Emmy award with Mario Lopez and Charissa Thompson for co-hosting ‘Extra’, revealed that when her and Sanders’ schedules conflicted, they still managed time for each other.
