Jo Koy doesn't find it 'too hard' to remain friends with Chelsea Handler  after their split

Jo Koy doesn't find it "too hard" to remain friends with Chelsea Handler after their breakup.

The 51-year-old comedian - who was previously married to artist Angie King and has 19-year-old Joseph with her - was in a relationship with former the former 'Chelsea Does' star, 47, for just under a year between 2021 and 2022 but explained that he wants to be a "role model" to his son following the split.

Asked how he manages to maintain a friendship with Chelsea, he said: "It’s not that hard. It’s just, especially when you have a kid - I have a son - and when you go through a breakup you want to be a role model as well,” he explained. “You lead by example and you don’t want him to do that."
