Q100 morning host and stand-up comic Brian Moote and British singer and celebrity Katie Waissel are officially broken up, according to a post on Waissel's Instagram page yesterday.

They met in Los Angeles and within a few months were married in October, 2015. In early 2016, Moote came to Atlanta to be part of the Bert Show, replacing Jeff Dauler. Waissel joined Moote for a brief time in Atlanta but by late late year, British gossip mags began writing about their split.

Her note from New York City noted that "I think it's now time that I am ready to put myself back out there into the big wide world."

She then wrote what is possibly the longest run-on sentence in Instagram history. Take a breath and get through these 103 words in a row: "Having found out that my husband, that I am currently only just separated from, who claims to still 'love me' and is 'apologetic' and even came to NYC to work things out, has been, let see how to put it politically, f**king out next door neighbor since the moment I left, and who knows, knowing his track record maybe even before, a girl I confided in for a whole year (I know so so disgusting) rather than be mad, or sad about it, I thought, you know what, it's time for me to move and let go... so, here I am, officially single!"

Last month, I asked Moote about the situation. He declined to say anything at the time. This morning, he stayed in that lane: "I am not gonna comment on all of that nonsense."

Waissel's note continued: "Feel free to take pity on me and introduce me to friends. The only thing on my 'what am I looking for list' is the opposite of what I just had. So, NO liars, No cheats, No identity takers, No sociopaths and No sycophants. Thank you and wish me luck!"

What made the 31 year old famous in Britain was appearing on "The X Factor" in 2010, the same year One Direction appeared on the show. She finished seventh. She also appeared on "Celebrity Big Brother" last year.  She was evicted day 25.

This is her second marriage. You can get all the details of that brief relationship here in the Daily Mail.
