Tracy Anderson was apparently dumped by her fiance soon after she got pregnant

Ooooh, this is INTERESTING. Back in February, Tracy Anderson announced her engagement to Scotsman Nick Riley. The engagement announcement came just a few weeks after Gwyneth Paltrow’s engagement confirmation, and I thought that was the story: fake blonde twinsies, business partners getting married around the same time. But as it turns out, the real story is that… Tracy was already talking about having a baby with Nick Riley and she might have already gotten pregnant, and then he dumped her. This story is crazy.

Celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson’s wedding to financier Nick Riley has been suddenly called off amid rumors that she is expecting his child, Page Six has exclusively learned.

Anderson, who hones the bodies of Jennifer Lopez, Michelle Obama and Gwyneth Paltrow, met Scottish-born Riley in the Hamptons in late 2016, and they were engaged in Aspen, Colo., in February. Anderson is in the very early stages of pregnancy, according to sources, and was stunned when Riley, BlueCrest Capital Management’s head of emerging markets, suddenly called things off last weekend without warning.

“Tracy is inconsolable,” a source relates. “She completely trusted him with this process and is at the height of her career. They froze embryos together late last year, but Nick wanted to try for a baby without undergoing IVF as soon as they were engaged.” The source continued, “He was pushing her for a July wedding amidst her weeks of morning sickness, then he abruptly decided he didn’t want to move forward with the relationship or the baby. It all came out of nowhere.”

We’re told Anderson, who has two children from previous relationships, is in her first trimester and is now surrounding herself with “close friends who witnessed Nick’s actions and saw how he manipulated her … with the promise of a life together.”

The famed founder of the Tracy Anderson Method has been keeping a low profile as she struggles to come to terms with the situation. Anderson had met Riley in 2016, a few months after his wife, Sole, a former JPMorgan Chase director with whom he appeared in Town & Country spreads featuring their “casually glamorous” modernist Hamptons homes, filed for divorce.

While Anderson had spoken in a May interview of trying for another baby, her reps are yet to confirm the pregnancy, telling us “When Tracy has something she wants to share, she will.” When questioned about the split, her rep added, “We won’t be commenting at this time.” Riley did not return messages left with his office.

While I kind of hate Tracy Anderson, no one deserves this. No woman deserves to be persuaded into a pregnancy and then dumped as soon as she gets pregnant. It’s an incredibly vulnerable moment and if this report is true, then Riley is a piece of sh-t. Now, all that being said… it feels like there’s something missing from the story, right? Like, what changed? What was the shift and why did it happen so suddenly? Was it just that she got pregnant and suddenly sh-t got real? Or was it something else??

    Not a fan of Tracy and Goop but this seems a bit harsh

    • Millenial says:

      Yeah, if true this is pretty terrible and no one deserves that kind of treatment.

    • SNAP says:

      Especially since they’ve been together since 2016 and had discussed babies and were about to get hitched. It’s not like they just hooked up last month. That situation sure is weird…

    • Raina says:

      Maybe the baby isn’t his…😓

  2. HelloSunshine says:

    It does sound like something’s missing but sometimes people are just bad and leave. I don’t really trust what comes out of her camp though, she can be a nasty person so I’ll wait and see how this plays out before taking a side.

    • nikzilla says:

      Agree. There was a critical event that led to his decision that’s being left out.

    • Morning Coffee says:

      It would be sweet karma if he dumped her because she was getting fat.

      • homeslice says:

        I admit I thought that. I mean she is obsessed with fat, maybe he is too.

        No one deserves this, that is true. But she comes off soooo superficial and vapid, not surprising that she met her match.

  3. Svea says:

    Loathe hedge funds and all they stand for. Stripping nations of their assets to put wealth into the hands of a few, gaming the market with algorithms and employing the best and the brightest to rip everybody off instead of solving a nation’s problems and being of service. Anyone who works for one has to check his soul at the door.

  4. ChrissyMS says:

    Short of being s a psychopath , what would be the motivation for encouraging pregnancy then leaving your partner. Something else might have happened.

    • FLORC says:

      Something else missing/happened logic isn’t always right. Like in the Starbucks racist issue. Many people saw the video and thought… something else must have happened to prompt a police call. Because logic doesn’t support this. And yet sometimes things happen where we can’t make sense of it.
      In truth. Sometimes people are just awful.

      A friend of mine was married to a guy for 5 years. Stable, well off, wanting a family. She got pregnant and a month in he told her to abort or divorce. Nothing happened. He was just a jerk. We all felt a wave of reality hit him like a mid life crisis rolled into an anxiety attack.

      So, we want to believe there’s a missing link here. We want to understand a justification.

    • Raina says:

      This is horrendous. Even if you don’t want to be with somebody at that point you sort of just stay around during the pregnancy or maybe postpone the wedding and still stay together. Too intricate and detailed. Doesn’t seem like a great time to break up. Something had to have happened. Maybe she all of a sudden turned into hormonal raging nightmare (not that pregnancy doesn’t a deserve a legit pass if so) or had weight issues/phobias. All speculation, of course.
      …or, maybe one of them cheated. Lastly, some people get more frightened about marriage than having a baby. They can deal with the baby but the idea of marriage all of a sudden makes them insane with panic. To me I always thought a baby was 100% more of a commitment.
      Still crummy timing. Aside from some sort of abuse, I’d probably just go through with the wedding and divorce soon after because my parents make my life a living hell if I put a down-payment I couldn’t get back. I would marry somebody I didn’t love probably solely based on my mother’s one expression she makes that is like a demonic wrath come alive.
      Shuddering even now at the thought.

  5. Catherine says:

    She’s an Aunt Coulter, so it’s hard to work up empathy

  6. Jayna says:

    How devastating for her.

  7. ChrissyMS says:

    Wow, just checked out her insta and she has client transformations on there, she makes people thin! Looks like a very strict diet plan.

    • Merritt says:

      I wonder how many stay that thin. Her method sounds unsustainable.

    • Grinning mama bear says:

      Do her clients stay thin? Do they yoyo-weight and she just posts the thin-pics?

    • lucy2 says:

      She’s advised a lot of stuff that doctors and other professionals disagree with as unhealthy/dangerous, and has a history of ripping people off.

      Not a fan AT ALL, but this is a harsh situation no one deserves. He doesn’t have to marry her, but if they end up having a baby, he can’t just walk away from that.

  8. minx says:

    I agree, sounds like something is missing here.

    • Jayna says:

      A sister of my friend was married for four years. They were a tight couple. They had been trying for a baby for a couple of years. They were excited about the pregnancy. Her best friend was around a lot, gave her shower. Guess what? She has the baby, and at the hospital after the birth, he tells her he’s in love with her friend and leaving her. He is still married to her best friend.

      A professional in my town was married. His wife’s best friend was left by her husband. She was devastated. The wife invited her friend to come to her town and stay with them for a month. She wanted to go to law school. The wife had her baby. Then the husband dumped her. Guess why? Her husband and her best friend had started an affair under her nose. The wife was a sweetheart. I worked with the mistress/now wife. She was much older. I was just starting into the workforce. She was a — well, not well liked. But she and the man lasted. They are still married.

      There are some really crappy people out there that you believe in and are blindsided by.

      • FLORC says:

        People need to learn how to be honest. Love and respect demands honesty

      • Wellsie says:

        A betrayal like that would mess me up big time. How can you trust someone again? Not to mention the heartbreak you feel for your little baby caught in the middle. Ugh. It’s almost too much to think about.

    • Carmen says:

      Not necessarily. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

  9. HeyThere! says:

    I’m not saying this is what happened but I feel like the missing info is ‘he’s not the father’. There has to be more to the story. If this is true…he’s psycho and she’s better off in the long run.

    • hunter says:

      I can’t help but suspect she had one of those embryos implanted without telling him when he had wanted to give it a try the old fashioned way. Finding out someone got pregnant behind your back is a HUGE betrayal of trust and could easily cause someone to terminate a relationship and not feel bad about it.

      I feel this could be what happened as she is known for being shady.

      • Angry Bird says:

        I don’t think it is possible/legal to have embryos implanted without obtaining consent from both parties. Is it?

  10. Ankhel says:

    While I don’t know their story, I’ve yet to meet a finance guy who isn’t always looking for the next shiny thing. It’s practically in their genes. Investments, stocks, blonde girlfriends, shoes… (don’t even ask.)

  11. Kate says:

    If they froze eggs together last year, he’s not breaking off the engagement now purely because she’s pregnant. That article is clearly her point of view so it’s disingenuous for her reps to leak that but then not confirm nor deny that she’s pregnant. Something’s fishy in this story.

  12. Jennifer says:

    In weird things babies can do to a relationship thread, I know a married lesbian couple where one partner wanted a baby, the other was not sure, the one who wanted a baby got caught up in affair with a married (to a man) co-worker, filed for legal separation from her wife, started IVF to have a baby on her own, and is now going through with the divorce saying it’s because of the baby, not the co-worker.

    People do mind boggling things

  13. Jessica says:

    This isn’t interesting this is awful. I don’t know who this woman is but sounds like she was heavily manipulated. I wonder if he’s even responsible for the baby because the embryo was created via IVF (does he have to adopt the child after he/she is born?)

    • Ankhel says:

      Sounds like the baby was conceived naturally, but even if it was IVF, that wouldn’t change a thing.

  14. Tiffany says:

    Considering how she feels about bodies, I am surprised that she would agree to a pregnancy. I mean, this dude has spoken to her, right?

    • Ankhel says:

      “It was your scumbag father who wanted you, or at least that’s what he said. Now he’s gone and my figure is ruined. And my career? I’m a fat fitness expert!”

      Okay, I’m being mean. And have probably seen too much AbFab. I’m sure she’ll love the baby.

    • Grinning mama bear says:

      It is a new business opportunity for her:

  15. girl_ninja says:

    Ugh. That is brutal, what a scumbag he is. I hope that she has a healthy pregnancy and enjoys her new baby and her older children.

  16. Happy21 says:

    I’ll wait for more to the story because I think there has to be.

    • Carmen says:

      It’s like the Starbucks incident where people said there has to be more to the story. There wasn’t. Every witness present said the way it was told was the way it went down. Some people are shits. Period.

      • Erinn says:

        Some people ARE just shits. But Tracy falls neatly into that category as well. Maybe he’s shitty too. Or maybe he finally decided he had enough because of some OTHER issue.

        Just because people doubted the starbucks incident doesn’t mean that classic mean-girl Tracy is suddenly on the up and up with her side of events. But it also doesn’t mean that the ex is on the up and up either.

  17. Dani says:

    He sounds a major douche canoe. Just a thought — maybe she went ahead with an embryo transfer and he didn’t really want to? Also, at 43 years old, there is a good change she is using donor eggs (unless she froze her own eggs years ago) so she may not even be biologically related to this baby. What a mess. Poor kid with a questionable dad.

  18. Ally says:

    Or the relationship broke down amid pre-nup negotiations.

  19. CadiC says:

    In her last IG post it looks like she was at a wedding, maybe that set something off with him. Cold feet, guy hasn’t been divorced that long, and as others have said hedge fund guys are always looking for the next best, brightest, shiny new thing.

  20. Valentina says:

    Sorry yell at me all you want. I don’t feel sorry for her. We don’t know the whole story. But what I do know is she’s a fraud who abandoned clients and promotes an extremely unhealthy way to get skinny- not fit because you can’t get fit living off under 1000 calories, while she promotes something that is not sustainable.

    It’s unhealthy and wrong. She promotes incorrect info about fitness like using weights higher than 5 lbs will bulk you up and that your thighs will bulk up from running. She’s says because of the “repeated pounding”. Have you seen runners or long distance runners? I feel they don’t have enough muscle.

    Dumping a pregnant woman isn’t good. And he’s a giant douche for it. But maybe he realized she was fake and didn’t want to spend his life with her. We don’t know, and we don’t know if he even wanted her to have babies via ivf. She could be spinning that for all we know. She’s lied about other stuff.

    I’m just going off her past behaviour. Past behaviour is the best predictor of future behaviour.

  21. ellie says:

    God this sounds like a nightmare.

  22. Ellecommelejour says:

    But what’s the difference with women who change their mind and get an abortion or leave their husband ?
    I mean, I feel bad for her but would everyone be feeling bad for her husband if she had dmchanged her mind and decided to get and abortion or leave him ?

  23. Rachel says:

    Well… I am not saying that it makes it any less terrible for her, the whole thing, BUT… the article said they met while he was going thru a divorce.
    As someone who has been divorced, I can wholeheartedly say that there is a period of time in which some serious soul searching and healing must happen.
    My opinion? She was a rebound relationship for him and he freaked out. Some people are in love with falling in love. She was an escape for him. Then he left because a. It was no longer new, distracting fun or b. He’s got bigger issues or c. Both
    Either way, moral of the story: DON’T DATE ANYONE MID DIVORCE, or even like soon after… danger danger.

  24. Cat says:

    You know they are both real people right? Would you want your private life speculated upon in this way?

    • Minxy says:

      @Cat Did you get lost on your way to church? This is a gossip site about people. Everyone featured in every story on this site are “real people”. Why is speculation about these two “real people” in particular have you clutching your pearls?

      No one went digging through Tracy’s garbage. Tracy Anderson is not famous enough for people to go checking for her Her own PR people likely leaked this story. If you take umbrage with it, go to the source which is the real person who you’re weirdly defending.

  25. Deeanna says:

    Sorry to say it but men have been doing this for a long, long time.

    Who knows? At age 43 she may have a miscarriage – they are even more common at that age than when younger. In any case it will be considered to be a high risk pregnancy.

    Maybe the guy just didn’t want to get married. That happens. Presumably she is well off enough financially to raise a child on her own. Plus the father will need to pay child support.

    It is never easy to go through a pregnancy alone, but plenty of women have done it.
