Benoit Beauséjour-Savard & Clare Crawley Split 2 Months After Proposal
After having a rocky relationship on the reality series, the 31-year-old popped the question to the 36-year-old on the Bachelor Winter Games: World Tells All special, which aired in February. Everyone was shocked by the engagement, because they didn’t even realize the pair was dating after the show ended. But since becoming engaged, neither Clare nor Benoit have posted any pictures together on social media, causing people to question their relationship status. Sadly, the duo announced its split last night.
“We understand A lot of you have been asking about our relationship since the show, and we wanted to thank you all for the love and respect as we navigated it in real life off camera,” they said in a joint statement posted to Instagram. “We do understand however, having a public engagement on TV kind of changes that. It’s with a heavy heart that we have mutually decided to end our relationship. We think the world of each other, and we were both hoping we could make this work.”
The separated couple continued, “I’m sorry that this may not be what you want to hear, but it’s our truth. Just know there are no negative feelings here, we are simply two people who believed in love, and were open enough to give it a chance. We still care for each other very deeply (That is why no hate or disrespectful comments will be tolerated about the other.) Please respect our privacy as well, as with the end of any relationship, it is never easy. Thank you for your understanding and love while we have shared our vulnerability with the world. Clare & Benoit.”
We wish them both the best!
