Is my boyfriend bound by my non compete clause?

Due to ongoing conflict, I sold my half of a business to my partner. She made me sign a 1 year no compete clause for entire state of Texas. But my boyfriend has been selling similar items before we started. Is he bound by the non compete clause or not

Look at the specific language in the non compete clause. How is the words "you" or "employee defined? It is doubtful that it includes your boyfriend.
