Dana Tyler's Failed Relationship: Left With Broken Hearts Amid Emotional Breakup!
Dana Tyler is reportedly single after her long-haul boyfriend Phil Collins; an English drummer, left her to nurse her broken hearts. They both started dating each other in mid-2006.
At first, the two were very secretive, and the relation was only confirmed four years after they began dating.

After the breakup, she took three months off from her duties with WCBS to recover from an emotional breakdown.
Orianne Cevey was not the only wife of her husband Phil, but she was his third wife, and the two were married for nine years before divorcing in 2008. They have two sons together named Nicholas and Matthew.
When Dana and Phil were in a relationship, the couple never discussed or declared their marriage plan. And after the incident, Dana is yet to get married.
Due to the absence of her love life, one cannot speculate her as a lesbian. She is very much straight, and even her past dating life itself speaks on behalf of her sexuality.
