The 37-year-old SPiN New York co-founder and Sarandon, 68, both appear on Morgan Spurlock's new AOL series 'Connected', which centers on six New Yorkers and their partners who were handed cameras to document their lives for six months, reported the New York Post.
The show, which will air its first episode on March 31, highlights entrepreneur and filmmaker Bricklin's relationship with Oscar-winning actress Sarandon, but apparently she grew increasingly annoyed about their private lives being filmed.
"It caused a lot of strain in the relationship. It's documented for the show that Susan breaks up with him because she doesn¿t want to be involved with the show. She says, 'You're a cast member, I'm not'," a source said.
Despite not wanting to be a reality star, Sarandon's name is listed as Bricklin's girlfriend in a press release for the show.
Sarandon, who had been in a long-term relationship with actor Tim Robbins prior to meeting Bricklin, is an investor in Bricklin's pingpong franchise.
