Drag Race's Victoria Scone announces split from fiancée
RuPaul's Drag Race UK and Canada's Drag Race: Canada vs the World star Victoria Scone has revealed that she has split from her fiancée, Dani.
Victoria proposed to Dani on the show last year. While on the main stage, she referenced popping the question. And at a viewing party, where Victoria and Dani were watching the episode together, Victoria got down on one knee and asked Dani the big question.
Fellow drag queen Kendall Gender caught the moment on video and shared it on social media.
Sadly, Victoria has now announced that she and Dani have split.

Sharing the news on Twitter today (March 31), Victoria said: "Hello! This is just to say that unfortunately, Dani & I separated a few weeks ago. Saying this now to mainly/hopefully stop the well wishes on the engagement haha."
Victoria added that she and Dani are "all good".
An outpouring of love and support came from Victoria's fans, who were quick to reply to the announcement tweet.
"Sorry to hear that, both legends of course," one Twitter user wrote. Another added: "Oof…breakups can be rough. I can’t imagine the added pressure that fame brings into the mix. Wishing the best for you both!"

On season 3 of RuPaul's Drag Race UK, Victoria had to exit the competition early, as she sustained a knee injury during a performance.
Victoria later appeared on Canada's Drag Race: Canada vs the World, placing in the top four with Rita Baga, Ra'Jah O'Hara and Silky Nutmeg Ganache. Ra'Jah took home the crown, while Silky was the runner-up.
Victoria previously explained to Digital Spy in an exclusive interview why she chose not to return for another round of Drag Race UK and instead go on Canada vs the World.
"Given the choice, for me, it's an obvious answer really," she said. "To be able to perform and compete with international superstars, and be able to film it internationally too. I think I've made a good choice."
RuPaul's Drag Race UK airs on BBC Three in the UK and streams on WOW Presents Plus in the US.
