New York and Tailor Made broke up

Despite early reports that they broke up, Tiffany “New York” Pollard and George “Tailor Made” Weisgerber moved in together and got engaged, they have now officially broken up, and that break-up will be chronicled on New York Goes to Hollywood.

VH1 confirmed to People magazine, “They broke up during the filming of New York Goes Hollywood. The whole drama went down with our cameras rolling and will play out for the audience.”

People cites an anonymous source who says that George Broke up with Tiffany back in January, when the initial report of their break-up surfaced. “In January, George had a serious discussion with Tiffany. He had come to the conclusion that he couldn’t handle the relationship anymore. It was too distracting to his life, his career and his daughter. He couldn’t consistently be involved in that kind of drama,” the source told the magazine.

When Tiffany’s new show started production, the source says George “played it up that they were still together even though they weren’t. They had an understanding because he has respect for Tiffany.”
