Becca Kufrin and her fiance, and the man she chose as the winner of her season of The Bachelorette Garrett Yrigoyen, have officially called it quits.
If you don’t know, Becca had previously revealed that her relationship with Garrett was having some issues after he made comments in support of a pro-police slogan associated with Blue Lives Matter.
She went on her podcast, which she normally co-hosts with Rachel Lindsay, to announce the news alone because she “didn’t think it was fitting to bring anyone else into this conversation when my relationship was only made up of two people: myself and Garrett.”
“I don’t think it’s going to come as a shock to anyone, but Garrett and I have decided to end our engagement,” she said. “Garrett and I came to this decision after many conversations. It wasn’t just something we just arrived at one night. It wasn’t based solely off of one Instagram post or somebody else’s opinions or comments. There’s much more to it. To any relationship, there’s a lot of layers. It’s not for me to divulge details. It’s no one’s business other than what I’m telling you right now.”
She added that they “realized that we still have so much love and kindness and compassion in our hearts for the other person, but sometimes people’s paths just go different ways.”
“We went on this crazy TV show over two years ago in hopes of finding love, and we were lucky enough that we did,” she continued. “We really, truly did. I’m so grateful for that opportunity and to have had the two-plus years with Garrett. Like I said, I still have so much love and compassion in my heart for him. Just because we’ve arrived at this decision now doesn’t take away all of the years and the countless memories that we’ve made together. I will always look back at this time in my life with so much gratitude and love.”
Garrett has been in the headlines on and off for years for what he has posted on social media and even apologized for what he previously wrote as his season of The Bachelorette was airing.
