Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth have split and called off their engagement after three years together.
The reality show couple who got engaged on the finale of Kaitlyn Bristowe’s season 11 of The Bachelorette issued the following exclusive statement to People regarding the split.
“After three incredible years, we have decided to go our separate ways. This difficult decision comes after thoughtful, respectful consideration. Even though we are parting as a couple, we’re very much committed to remaining friends. We have both evolved as people, which is taking us in different directions, but with the hope that we will continue to support each other in new ways. Due to the nature of how we met, our relationship has always been very public, and we have enjoyed sharing it with all of you, but we ask that you respect our decision and our privacy at this time.
Rumors of the split began over the summer when the fans started speculating that something was up when they spent several weeks apart without posting photos together on Instagram.
