Kathy Griffin is single.

The comedian confirmed her split from longtime boyfriend Randy Bick on Thursday.

“God help me, but I¹m gonna be one of those people who announces a break up. After 7 years, Randy and I have decided to part ways. It’s not acrimonious and I will always adore him,” she tweeted.

Griffin, 58, and Bick, who is 18 years the comedian’s junior, began dating in 2011 after meeting at a wine festival. Griffin previously told PEOPLE that she thought their first encounter would be nothing more than a one-night stand.

“I thought he was just a man-whore, if you will,” she joked.

The couple lived together in Griffin’s Bel Air home, along with their two rescue dogs Pom and Larry.

“We have a great time, and he’s very sweet and very mellow,” she told PEOPLE in 2016. “He’s like a regular guy, you know, he’s like a real guy. He’s not like a Hollywood guy.”

Griffin married software entrepreneur Matthew Moline in 2001, but the comedian filed for divorce four years later after she claimed he stole from her over an 18-month period. She dated Apple co-founded Steve Wozniak from 2007-08.
