However, the relationship was not all rosy. Since Ahmir lived in Philadelphia, the two were in a long-distance relationship. Adding to the relationship woe was Jazz's parents' worry about the fast relationship. 

Further, as Ahmir also joined a college in Pennsylvania in January 2019, fans speculated that the young duo parted ways. 

To add more fuel to the speculations, Ahmir posted a photo of himself with a caption that hinted he might be single.

“Although we may be single sometimes, we will be beautiful at all times...Everything is temporary. Except for the bad b***h vibes that you bring to the table.”

Ahmir explained to RadarOnline that season six of I Am Jazz will play out the details of the alleged breakup between Jazz and him. So as of November 2019, there is no evidence of the couple breaking up.

Jazz Jennings’ Surgery Details

Being a transgender person, Jazz was on hormone blockers since she was 11 years old that paused any further development as a male. She also started taking estrogen pills since high school.

When she finally came of age for the gender confirmation surgery, there were complications as she did not have enough tissue growth for the operation to be carried out, and several surgeons denied to carry out the process. Furthermore, she had to lose thirty pounds before the surgery, which in itself was challenging.
