“Bachelor” couple Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson have officially confirmed they broke up. After working hard to make their relationship work for the past nine months, the couple admitted they couldn’t go on any longer.
A statement from Ben and Courtney was released to In Touch Weekly:
“After meeting over a year ago, we have decided to end our romantic relationship. The ups and downs weighed heavily on us both and ultimately we started to grow apart because of the distance, time apart, and our need to focus on our respective careers.We have nothing but the utmost respect for each other, and both feel this is the right decision. We continue to remain friends and will support each other in future endeavors. Thanks to everyone for your love and support, it’s been quite a ride.”
Ben and Courtney hid their problems well from the public eye because a lot of messages posted on Twitter from both of them were about future wedding plans. Ben would often tell followers that his lovely fiancee would remind him of the anniversary date of when something special happened between them on the show. How long have “The Bachelor” couple maintained a facade to cover up what was really going on between them?
Courtney spent a lot of time in northern California near Ben’s home in Sonoma. They frequented San Francisco and even tweeted photos of what they envisioned their future wedding destination to be.
The two of them lasted a lot longer than Bachelor fans and media thought they would. It was predicted that the pair would have split up right after the show aired in March, but they made a go of it.
How do you feel about the Ben and Courtney split?
