What Happened To Brandi Passante And Jarrod Schulz's Relationship After Storage Wars?

After 12 seasons, A&E's "Storage Wars" decided to pack it up in 2019. However, the show's 13th season premiered on April 20, bringing back the original premise and some of the original cast. The show also returned for Season 14 in 2021, once again reuniting some familiar faces. For over 10 years now, the show has had incredible success, with a solid team consisting of Dave Hester, Darrell Sheets, Brandon Sheets, Jarrod Schulz, and Brandi Passante. When storage locker fees aren't paid after three months, it's on the buyers to quickly maneuver their way around the contents for five minutes before the locker is auctioned off.

Fans of "Storage Wars" know all of this; it's why they love the show. However, when it comes to relationships on and off-camera, things are a little more hush-hush. Being on a popular reality series while having a meaningful relationship in front of a camera is oftentimes hard, and with that in mind, here's what happened to Jarrod and Brandi in the aftermath of their last appearance on "Storage Wars" prior to the current season.

Jarrod Schulz and Brandi Passante broke up in 2018

In 2020, Brandi Passante sat down for an interview with The Dad Diary on Facebook (via TV Shows Ace), and among other things, she explained that she and Jarrod Schulz — aka the "Young Guns" couple — split up in 2018. While some viewers might've assumed they were married, they were just long-term partners. Since their breakup, Brandi has been the sole provider for their two kids and has remained a single mom ever since.

On the show, Brandi and Jarrod always kept their personal lives on the down low, so this revelation is a huge bombshell for fans. Even though Brandi focuses on her children, Jarrod is a different story. In 2020, he moved on with a woman named Rochel Beckman, and they're still together. At first, Rochel shared a glimpse inside their relationship on her social media, but as of now, she's switched her settings to private. 

Now that "Storage Wars" is back on A&E, despite a 15th season not being confirmed yet, there don't seem to be any hints that the reality show's favorite couple will be reconciling anytime soon. Furthermore, it appears that their relationship has become quite tumultuous since their breakup.

Jarrod's time on Storage War appears to be over

For the most part, Brandi Passante and Jarrod Schulz tend to keep out of the public eye unless they're involved in their reality television pursuits. However, the ex-couple did make the news following an altercation in a bar in April 2021.

According to TMZ, it was alleged that Schulz pushed his ex during the exchange, and the Orange County District Attorney's Office subsequently charged him with one count of misdemeanor domestic violence battery. Furthermore, several cast members reportedly told TMZ that he shouldn't return to "Storage Wars" if the allegations prove to be true.

Schulz denied the domestic violence accusation, but the incident could have ended his time on "Storage Wars." A&E launched a probe into the pair's altercation after it took place, but the results have yet to be revealed to the public, assuming that the network has completed its investigation. However, Schulz didn't return to the show for Season 14, which aired between 2021 and 2022, suggesting that his time on the reality series is over.

Brandi Passante is passionate about social causes

Outside of "Storage Wars," Brandi Passante has become a campaigner who's heavily involved in charity work. In 2019, she began promoting the Women's Own Worth organization on Instagram, encouraging her followers to spread awareness and help aid in the fight against domestic violence. She also helped the organization raise over $100,000 when she emceed one of its events that same year.

In recent years, Passante has also become an advocate for disability rights. In an interview with "The Dad Diary" podcast, she revealed that her daughter, Payton, was born deaf and had to have surgery for it when she was young. These experiences have seemingly inspired the "Storage War" star to use her profile to raise awareness about disability, especially when it pertains to children. Passante has used her social media profile to share several videos aimed at empowering children with disabilities, indicating that she's passionate about the cause.

Passante has also lent her talents to podcasting, having regularly guested on "Happening Now With Hammer." This show has allowed the "Storage Wars" star to share her thoughts on a variety of topics, ranging from her personal life to topical news stories.
