ATL’s ‘Hot gay dads’ Kordale & Kaleb break up

Add this share

Love is never easy, but “loving someone shouldn’t be hard.” That’s the quote from Kaleb Anthony, half of Atlanta’s viral gay internet sensations who inspired thousands by raising visibility of black LGBT life.

On Instagram, the place that started it all, Anthony announced the end of his relationship with Kordale Lewis. In a stream of posts that have since been deleted, Anthony slung the dirt and his feelings for the world to see.

“You should never have to question your worth or compromise your morals when you’re with your soulmate, he wrote. “To my beautiful kids, I’ll see you this weekend at mommy’s house; it’s whatever you all want to do! My love for them will always prevail even if ‘Daddy’ and I are no longer together.

“You see, loving someone shouldn't be hard, it should be easy and stress free. You should never have to question your worth or compromise your morals when you’re with your soulmate; it doesn’t work out that way. Keep you first and who you love second, stay true to who you are and you’ll never lose yourself like I did. I am happy to be “CALEB” again.”

Note the spelling in that last sentence. The “Kaleb” of “Kordale & Kaleb” is gone, and original recipe “Caleb” puts the writing on the wall. The nitty-gritty dirt dishing goes on – at length with hints at big gay drama – but the end result is clear: The internet’s favorite “hot gay dads” are splitsville.

Seems like only yesterday they were making national headlines, making a splash at the Atlanta Pride parade, making bank on a book, making memories at the NOH8 photo shoot, and making national commercials. Guess that fourth child and movie deal are off. The wedding too.

We’ll console ourselves by remembering them at their best with these photos. Thanks for the memories, guys.
