'Bachelor' Breakup: Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson Call It Quits
Ben Flajnik didn't find true love after all. What a shock.
“The Bachelor” star and fiancée Courtney Robertson have decided to end their engagement, telling In Touch in a statement, "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."
After a failed attempt to live together, the two decided to “take things slow” and try to date out of the spotlight, but ultimately could not make it work.
"We have nothing but the utmost respect for each other, and both feel this is the right decision," they said of their split. "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."
