Another Bachelor couple bites the dust!
Just four months after their engagement aired on the season finale of Bachelor In Paradise, Grant Kemp and Lace Morris have officially called it quits.
The couple confirmed their breakup to Entertainment Tonight.
“It really was mutual,” Lace says. “We both have our issues we need to work on, and we can’t really give each other what we need at this time. It’s just not the right timing. We have so much love for each other, and it’s weird because the chemistry is there, and I’m thinking, ‘Why can’t we make this work?’ But it’s just not possible right now.”
“For a month, we were kind of starting to bicker, and it was a thing of, something’s got to give,” she continued. It was a cycle we couldn’t break. … I think he’s an amazing man. I’m super sad that it ended, but I know it’s for the best right now.”
“She’s a great person,” Grant said “There were things we were trying to work on that we expected to get better with time, and unfortunately it kind of went the opposite way.”
But about the matching tattoos that they got together?
Grant told TMZ that while he isn’t in a rush to have the ink lasered off right now, he’d be ‘open’ to getting rid of it in the future.
It’s not just about Grant: Lace explained that she’s keeping the ink because it reminds her of fond memories from her time filming the Bachelor spin-off show
Lace also claimed that she plans to keep the $98,000 engagement ring that Grant popped the question with.
