Passante and Schulz have starred in Storage Wars since season 1 premiered in 2010, and also led the spin-off series Brandi & Jarrod: Married to the Job, which ran for eight episodes in 2014.

When Storage Wars returned for season 13 last month, viewers learned the two had split.

"I'm not with Jarrod anymore," Passante said during the April 20 premiere.

In a separate interview on the show, Schulz said, "Just because me and Brandi aren't together anymore, doesn't mean we can't go to an auction — but separately."

The episode saw the two cross paths at an auction, with Passante calling Schulz "an idiot" for spending $400 on a storage unit that didn't particularly look profitable.

Passante called things off with Schulz after filming the 12th season of Storage Wars, which premiered in November 2018. They share two kids.
