During the conversation, Gosselin noted that he and Conrad had experienced a rough patch during the early portion of the year. 

‘We had ongoing issues previous to our breakup and previous to her diagnosis, so we…didn’t really want any stress during her treatment,’ he said.

The DJ then expressed that he and his former partner decided to remain close while she recovered from her various procedures. 

‘We thought it was best that we just stop our relationship and work on our friendship and get her through her treatment,’ he said.

‘I helped her through cancer, insurance and everything else. I supported her through her cancer. It was easier as friends to break off the relationship and get her through that as well,’ he said.

He added: ‘I’ll always love Colleen and we’re friends and it wasn’t because of cancer.’
