Katie Couric splits with boyfriend of five years
Katie Couric and Brooks Perlin have split.
Us reports that Couric, 54, and Perlin, 37, have ended their five-year relationship. Perlin is reportedly in the process of moving out of Couric’s townhome. Couric and Perlin met in 2006 at a cancer research fundraising event at the Louis Licari Hair Salon.
A source close to Couric says, “Brook’s a nice guy, but it was inevitable because they had different priorities and perspectives, and their age difference made it a challenge, too. Brooks is a great person and a real gentleman; he and Katie enjoyed their time together. But after five years, they have decided it was time to go their separate ways.”
Couric’s friend also says that “Katie is someone who is incredibly versatile and accessible and in high demand. She’s available and back on the market.”
Couric was previously married to Jay Monahan who passed away in 1998 from colon cancer. They had two daughters together, Ellie, 20, and Carrie, 15.
