Kathy Griffin and her longterm boyfriend have split – and the comedian was not to be outscooped.
Griffin, 58, revealed on Twitter that she and partner Randy Bick are calling it quits after seven years together.
“God help me, but I’m gonna be one of those people who announces a break up,” she wrote Thursday. “After 7 years, Randy and I have decided to part ways. It’s not acrimonious and I will always adore him.”
The star also made sure to toss in a dig at celebrity gossip site TMZ and its founder Harvey Levin, writing that “those jerks at TMZ won’t get the story first. Go back to your bootlicking, @HarveyLevinTMZ.”
Griffin and Bick, 40, also her tour manager, shared a home together in Bel Air, Calif. as of January.
Bick remained by his girlfriend’s side during a tumultuous 2017 in which she was all but shunned by Hollywood for a photo in which she held a fake, decapitated Donald Trump head.
“It’s been really hard. It seems like everybody turned,” he told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year.
The former couple first met at a food and wine festival, though Griffin later said she initially dismissed him as a “man-whore.”
