The best source for updates on Chip and Joanna Gaines’ life — is Chip and Joanna Gaines.
That’s what the “Fixer Upper” stars’ rep tells ET in response to a recent report that “security issues” are what led the couple to decide to end their popular HGTV home renovation show after its upcoming fifth season.
“Chip and Jo’s decision to leave ‘Fixer Upper’ is truly just based on wanting to catch their breath for a minute; to rest, refresh, and spend even more time with their family and growing businesses,” the rep explains. “It is not based on concerns for their family’s safety or anything else people might read. They were very open and honest about their reasoning behind this decision when they first shared the announcement.”
“Fixer Upper” premiered in 2013, and featured Chip and Joanna teaming up — through their company, Magnolia Homes — to renovate over 100 houses. She’d design the remodels, while her husband managed construction (as well as go off on some silly shenanigans).
Meanwhile, this is not the first time the couple has shut down rumours about their personal life.
In August, the Gaines had to again address rumours that they were planning to divorce. Watch the video below for more.
