‘Love Is Blind’ star Shayne Jansen ‘broken’ as he mourns his mother’s death

Reality TV star Shayne Jansen said he was « broken inside » by the death of his beloved mother, Karen Jansen.

The 33-year-old ‘Love Is Blind’ star shared the devastating news on Instagram on Thursday, saying the two were « inseparable ».

« I lost my best friend today, » Shayne wrote alongside a series of snaps of the pair. “For a year, we have been inseparable. Coffee every morning at ‘Schitt’s Creek’ every evening. I’m broken inside but I know I can live with no regrets knowing we did it all together.

« I can never replace my FaceTime partner on a daily basis, » he added.

The Chicago-based TV star thanked her followers « for the support » during the difficult time.

It wasn’t long before Jansen’s castmates paid tribute to Karen, whom they had met several times during their time on the Netflix dating show.

« Sending you love. I’m so sorry, » co-host Vanessa Lachey wrote, before her husband Nick Lachey, who co-hosts the show with her, added, « So sorry bro …. »

‘Love Is Blind’ star Shaina Hurley, who was romantically linked to Jansen during the show, wrote, « We are praying for you and your Shayne family, we are here for you. »

Abhishek Chatterjee, better known as “Shake” on the show, wrote, “She treated us all like her own sons. She will be greatly missed.”

Costar Deepti Vempati commented, « Sending you love, » before Danielle Ruhl added, « Thinking of you and sending you love. »
