Jeff Leatham, the stylist who was awarded "Chevalier de L'Order des Arts et Letters," had a stammering love life with his gay partner.
From love at first sight to exchanging the marriage vows, Jeff rode the high waves of married life with Colton Haynes. But, Jeff's romance not only faded but soon ended in a few months after getting married.
Well, join us to retrace Jeff Leatham's journey of love and divorce, along with a few bio-related details.
Dawn Of Gay Romance Leading To Wedding
The artistic director had a stumbling journey of his love life. However, his birthday is still a mystery.
Jeff and Colton first crossed their paths in an airport in October 2017, while Jeff was standing with his assistant in line and ran into the celeb florist. He hit him in the back with his Louis Vuitton bag.
The duo ended up sharing the same flight, where they both passed Post-It notes back and forth and also each other's numbers. Soon, the trip turned romantic as they cuddled each other and a day after, Jeff made the romantic gesture of sending flowers to Colton's home quoting, “What movies are made of.”
The duo was supposed to meet for a date years back ago, in 2013 as their two mutual friends, event planner Val Vogt and tennis star Serena Williams set up for a date for the two. Jeff was a Paris resident back then while the American actor was in Vancouver shooting for Arrow at the time, so they decided not to cancel the date.
And the sweetest proposal came in March 2017.
Jeff, age 46, popped the question under fireworks in Las Ventanas al Paraiso, Mexico and asked Colton, his boyfriend, to exchange the marriage vows with him. He even took his proposal moment to Instagram stating that Colton said "Yes" to the proposal.
Following seven months of engagement, Jeff revealed his intention of getting married to his fiance. Sharing an Instagram image on 10 October 2017, he opened to his followers that the two planned to wed at the end of the month. He posted few snaps with Colton while sharing how blessed he is to have him in his life. Jeff captioned the picture as,
"The fact that I get to marry this man who is beautiful inside and out at the end of the month - makes me the luckiest man on earth. He is an inspiration to me and so many others - and I am so blessed to spend my life as his husband so very soon â¤ï¸â¤ï¸â¤ï¸- Love you @coltonlhaynes."

Finally, the pair began their married life after they tied the nuptial knot on 27 October 2017, in a star-studded ceremony of around 120 guests at a Palm Springs hotel.
Calls Off Seven Months of Married Life
The couple's married life seems pretty good until the rumors came flying showing signs of trouble in their marriage. The married couple made their last public appearance together in March 2018. And the divorce rumors got stronger when the Teen Wolf actor deleted the pair's several pictures from his Instagram.
It became more than obvious after Colton, who enjoys the net worth of $4 million, dropped the word "husband" from his bio, changing his name from Haynes-Leatham back to Haynes.
Finally, the rumors became a reality after Colton filed for divorce on 8 May 2018 in Los Angeles citing irreconcilable differences, cause for their divorce. As per the source, their relationship went off track some time ago, and Colton felt that Jeff pulled him away from his friends and felt like losing himself in the process. The insider stated,
"Through their relationship, Jeff pulled Colton away from his friends and Colton really started to lose himself."
Colton, who ended their seven months marriage, has even asked the judge to terminate spousal support for both of them and demanded the both to pay their own attorney's fees.
Well, the seven months married couple seems to have pulled the plug off their relationship.
Love Finds It’s Way Back Again In The Life Of Jeff Leatham
Many people were shocked by the sudden split of the couple as they were seen genuinely in love since they were together in a relationship.
Back in March of 2018, the sudden death of Colton's mom caused significant turmoil in their marriage. It is said when a person is in grief, he/she tries to create more misery in their life as a result of vulnerability. Losing someone as close as mother made him very vulnerable and impulsively he ended things with Jeff too soon. Soon after losing his mother, Colton started creating distance from his inner circle and started isolating himself, even from Jeff.
But by September, Colton and Jeff began wearing their wedding rings on their finger which was a complete shock for their fans. It seems like both had a real strong bond after the loss of his mother. Moreover, the couple is getting better day by day as they continue to heal from the loss of a family member.
Moreover, the love they had for each other brought the couple back even during the hard times. Furthermore, Jeff and Colton found a way to work their relationship, and they are only going more stronger from here.
