A year later, they were engaged, but Williams, who has publicly shared her struggle with depression, broke up with Johnson twice in three months while going through a depressive episode. Williams entered a treatment facility for a week, which was also documented on “Chad Loves Michelle,” the couple’s reality TV show on OWN. The couple also underwent intense premarital counseling and individual therapy, some of which was seen on the show.

By Saturday night, Williams posted another message on Instagram Stories about the breakup.

“To @elevateint, and everybody in leadership that I met through @chadjohnson77, his family and friends. I am so sorry that I couldn’t be what I desired to be to your leader. To the young ppl (and some old ones) that were hopeful and inspired by the love we had, I’m so sorry that I let you down! We were very public with our relationship, I felt it on my heart to say sorry! Chad is an awesome man with an awesome ministry and future!”

Williams is currently on Broadway in the revival of “Once On This Island.” “Chad Loves Michelle” has two more episodes in its eight-episode run.

Johnson has not publicly commented on the split.
