Shannon Sharpe’s partnership with Skip Bayless is coming to a conclusion soon.
Sharpe and Fox Sports, the parent company of FS1, which airs “Undisputed,” have reached a buyout agreement, sources tell The Post.
Sharpe’s final show is expected to be after the 2023 NBA Finals conclude in June.
Sharpe’s popular “Club Shay Shay” podcast, which draws a big audience on social media and YouTube, will also be leaving Fox Sports, a source said.
Shannon Sharpe has never been married. The NFL Hall of Famer claimed in his podcast, Club Shay Shay, that he never found the time to get married because he was so preoccupied with playing football. In a conversation with fellow NFL veteran Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson, the former Denver Broncos tight end explained why he had never married.
“I’m about to be 55. I’m about to be a double nickel. I would have loved to have married earlier, but my career was the most important,” Sharpe said. He continued, “So I was no good. I was a terrible father. I probably was a terrible brother, a terrible son. I was a terrible boyfriend because football was the most important thing; I was consumed with that because I wanted to get my grandmother and family out of the conditions I grew up in.”
Shannon Sharpe proposed to fitness enthusiast Katy Kellner in 2016, which was the closest he has ever come to being married. They were getting along well, but two years later they broke up because Sharpe thought Kellner had cheated on him with one of her business partners. Additionally, he claimed that Kellner became pregnant due to the business partner. Sharpe hasn’t found love since.
Born in 1981, Katy is an American citizen who started her career as a Fulton County public school teacher. Teaching in the same school for more than eight years, Kellner decided to try her hand into a completely different profession.
Katy Kellner joined primary fitness training and co-founded Thousands Oak Gym in USA (California) in corporation with Marlon Byrd. This is just when Shannon Sharpe is rumored to have parted ways with Katy, after which the latter is currently in a relationship with Luis Castillo. Moreover, she is working as a fitness instructor and regional director at Flywheel Sports and Cycle bar.
