GOLD RUSH Rick Ness and fiancée Leese break up amid cheating allegations

Gold Rush Rick Ness and Leese Arie break up after getting engaged

Less than one month after Gold Rush star Rick Ness announced his engagement to girlfriend Leese Arie, the couple have split up due to Rick allegedly cheating on her. Again.

Leese made the break up announcement on TikTok late last night. In the brief clip, Leese lip synced the words to Brett Young’s song “Like I Loved You” before flipping off the camera at the end. “Last Time he ever cheats on me again!!” Leese wrote over top of the clip.

The clip was captioned with a string of hash tags that includes #cheatersneverchange, #singleuntiliknowitsreal and #neverlookingback.

Leese shared the TikTok post on Instagram as well. “Never looking back!!” she wrote in the caption. “2 years of emotional, mental, and physical abuse weekly!! I am done!! God please give me the strength to get through this.. 😭🙏💔😭🙏💔”

On Facebook, Leese posted a selfie and was a little more vulnerable with her message:

Dear God, 😭💔😭💔
Please help me, I am not strong enough on my own.
I need you now and always…
Please take me in your arms and hold me tight…
Please protect me from this world and all of this pain…
Please heal my heart and soul and make me whole again…
In your name Amen 🙏

In the comments of the TikTok post, Leese shared some additional information on her troubled relationship with Rick:
