Last Modified: Jun 6, 2023
Country singer Zach Bryan is now a single man.
Bryan, 27, publicly confirmed his split from girlfriend Deb Peifer, 25, via a Tweet.
“For transparency and with respect I am letting everyone know Debra and me went our separate ways about a week and a half ago,” he tweeted.
He continued, “Things are mutual between us, we’re leaving with plenty memories and good times. I beg so much that everyone respects her and my privacy through a hard time.”
Peifer also shared her ex’s statement on her Instagram story.
The last time Bryan was featured on her Instagram was a selfie posted on April 30 with the caption, “gloomy days & cafes & funny reflections.” Since then the pair has removed all traces of each other from social media pages.
The former couple celebrated their one-year anniversary on Jan. 3, 2023. In a since-deleted post, she had written, “one whole year of me and you and that smol little brown bear. To many more road trips and sunsets and people asking me to break up with you.”
Deb Peifer currently works as an education program coordinator in Philadelphia, having graduated from Manhattan College in 2020.
Bryan, who served in the US Navy before turning to music as his career, was previously married to Rose Madden.
He and his now ex-wife had married in July 2020 at Colchuck Lake in Washington.
They had met while serving in the military and had divorced just a year into their marriage.
Bryan recently made headlines after he booted a female fan from his show in Albany, New York after she tried to grab a guitar out of his hands.
He tweeted after the concert, “I give J-45’s out at a lot of concerts.”
The Something in the Orange hitmaker explained, “The one in my hands when this happened was mine, my sweet ol’ gal, we’ve been everywhere together and written every song in the last few years together.”
“Took it personal, but nothing against whoever wound up getting kicked out,” he added.
The singer further explained his actions in a follow-up tweet, “I don’t mind people being respectful and trying to touch me or the guitar, but if you try to rip it out of my hands I promise I’ll rip you out of whatever venue we’re at, respectfully, of course.”
