It would be an understatement to say Chris “C.T.” Tamburello and Diem Brown have had an on-again/off-again love affair for years. The stars from MTV’s The Challenge franchise met in 2006, dated, and were even rumored to be engaged before officially calling it quits in 2009.
But, like all good love stories, CT and Diem can’t seem to stay away from each other for long. The two reunited this past weekend when CT visited Diem in the hospital where she is being treated for her third battle with cancer.
In the photo, Diem is laying in her hospital bed hooked up to various machines while CT sits in a chair by her side gently holding her hand as the two enjoy a quiet rest. He captioned the photo simply:
Sometimes just being there for someone can be the difference between a good and bad day. @diembrown could definitely use a few… Please goto her support page: www.medgift.com/diemsnextchallenge #medgift
CT later posted a screen shot of Diem’s MedGift page encouraging fans to support her through donations which you can do by clicking here.
While Diem has remained hopeful for her future during her fight with cancer, she admits she has a long road ahead before officially overcoming the disease.
By all accounts, the pair seem to be just friends but that hasn’t stopped fans from holding out hope that one day the two will rekindle their romance.
CT and Diem have a long history beginning in 2006 when they met during the filming of The Duel. The pair quickly hit it off and Diem seemed to possess an ability no one else had: taming bad boy CT. Some would say their relationship became official during their caught-on-camera private kiss.
The couple then appeared together on Gauntlent III in 2008 but by the time The Duel II rolled around in 2009, they had broken up seemingly for good.
Even though Diem and CT became ex’s, it worked to their advantage when they competed together on Battle of the Exes in 2012.
In 2013, they both made a return for Rivals II where their flame was reignited during a late night swim. But, things didn’t go so smoothly for the couple considering CT was also fooling around with Anastasia, Nany, and Cooke but claims it was all just part of the game. #player #literally
During the reunion show forRivals II, things got heated when CT was put on the spot regarding the current status of his relationship with Diem.
The host, Jonny Mosely, wrapped up the interview by simply asking, “Where do you guys stand now?’
CT answered, “None of your business.”
I think Jonny summed it up best when he said, “I guess your story is to be continued.”
