Derek Peth and Taylor Nolan called it quits one year after meeting and getting engaged on Bachelor in Paradise season 4.
“It is with much sadness that we have decided to end our engagement. We put everything we could into our relationship and are heartbroken to go forward separately, but we know this is the best decision for the both of us,” the exes said. “We will still be present in each other’s lives with support, admiration and respect for each other.
The statement was released by the couple one month ago at the time of their split. Derek Peth is now throwing major shade at his ex and reveals the real reason behind their break up in a tell all interview with Claudia Oshry and Jackie Oshry on The Morning Toast!
When asked if Taylor was the one that got away, Derek replied, “No, she’s not,” before bursting into laughter.
“It was very stressful at the end… I continue to process the breakup all the time. I think that she didn’t want to leave Seattle and she wanted to like travel here and travel there and take advantage of some of this [Bachelor] stuff… And I got my job in New York City, I have my normal week,” he said before adding that he didn’t want to “call her out for being too thirsty.”
Former Bachelor star Olivia Caridi was another reason for their split.
“I was here in the city and we hooked up… [we had sex], I’ll be honest. And we talked for two weeks and then it was like, this isn’t what I want to do. But, when they [Taylor and Olivia] started hanging out, Taylor and I were still together and I was working a lot that week. And a couple of days later she was like, ‘Oh hey, just so you know, Olivia is in town, we hung out.. and she’s probably gonna move into my building. So they live literally a floor apart and I was like, hold on, this is someone who has talked mad sh-t about me. It was indicative of, alright, this is where this relationship is headed.”
Derek also confessed to having a huge crush on Becca Kufrin.
“I don’t care that she’s engaged.. for now! We’ll see how long they last.”
