To put an end to it is difficult. Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth split up and left together after three years, Weekly can confirm.
"After three incredible years, we decided to go our separate ways. This difficult decision comes after careful, respectful consideration, "the couple said in a joint statement Us on Friday, November 2nd. "Although we divorced as a couple, we are very committed to the remaining friends. We have both evolved as human beings, leading us in different directions, but hoping that we will continue to support ourselves in new ways. Because of the way we met, our relationship has always been very public and we are very happy to share it with you all, but we ask you to respect our decision and privacy at this time. "
A source that was told before Us The romance was rocking: "Kaitlyn has basically canceled her engagement with Shawn, but they are still trying to work on their relationship. It will not tell anyone too many details, but they can not see anybody else yet. "
A separate insider showed that the couple was never seen together. Bristowe, 33, did not wear her engagement ring and Booth, 31, was spotted all the time without podcast host "Off the Vine," the insider added.
The Bachelorette alums, who got engaged in the season 11 finale in 2015, had to deal with rumors in August after speculation about a split run among their fans. "Shawn and I feel 110 percent committed to each other and yes, we're still together," Bristowe said in the episode of August 16, "Off the Vine."
The reality star explained her fiancé's absence during a summer stay in her native Canada and found that the personal trainer needed to stay in Nashville because he had recently opened his own shop there.
"If you've ever been a person who leads a successful brand or business, and a person who does the same but is on a different career path, you know that times can be difficult," she told the audience. "They are both always gone, you are exhausted at the end of the day, sometimes the relationship is not put first, but does that mean you stop quitting? They love each other and work their way through – and themselves to get better. And you know that times will not always run smoothly. … you just have to overcome these hurdles and enjoy the good times. "
In addition, Bristowe noted that she did not "like" Booth's Instagram posts for social media cleaning.
The Bachelor alum pointed to problems when she collapsed on October 18 in an Instagram story. "So I deleted my post earlier – it was an Instagram story – just that I had a hard day but I did not think should have and I just did not want people to jump to conclusions," she said in tears "But for anyone just going through a small challenge, all you have to do is know that this is temporary, and that too will be over, and that we will all be okay, and social media, as I always say, is unique a highlight. "
Bristowe's last Instagram post with Booth was on October 7, when she took a snapshot of the two celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving Brandi Cyrus and Bachelorette alum Blake Horstmann, The most recent Instagram party of his former fiancée, whom he described as "sweet", was on 8 September.
Earlier this year, the creator of Dew Edit announced Us that the duo went "backwards" in the wedding planning process. "I feel like we talked about making suggestions again because sometimes I do not want to wear a ring because I want him to have him just to surprise me," she said in June. "Because we always talk about making suggestions if I do not expect it, as if I'm on the show, knowing it would come. Well, yes, I've been thinking about giving Shawn back the ring so he can suggest it when the time comes, and we can start wedding planning if we feel it's the time. "
