Kaitlyn Bristowe FINALLY Reveals Why She Ended Engagement with Jason Tartick

Kaitlyn Bristowe is telling all!

The former Bachelorette revealed that ex-fiancé Jason Tartick chose money over her, which led to their split.

“When I met Jason, it was very much like, ‘Oh, no, I’m not going to be an influencer, I work at a bank,’” she says on the the “Almost Adulting” podcast. “I was like, ‘OK, this is going to work out perfectly. He’s a great guy, he doesn’t want to be an influencer, he’s going to make hay while the sun shines because he was on The Bachelor and he can bring in some cash, but really, he’s so established in his bank job that we’re going to have our separate lives.’”

Jason soon lost his job after Kaitlyn discussed getting their s*x life on her podcast.

Kaitlyn begged him not to start a podcast and he initially obliged her and took a “face-first dive into influencer life,” she said.

“As time went on, he realized that podcasting is another avenue for income and that he could do a finance podcast,” she said. “Slowly but surely, it was like, ‘He’s definitely going to do a podcast.’”

Kaitlyn said she didn’t want to ask him to choose “me or a podcast” but she felt “he could be making all this other money in other avenues.”

Jason then went on to accuse her of “emotionally and financially stunting my growth.

“I had a full panic attack because I felt like I wasn’t chosen and that my feelings were not worth over money for him,” she says, adding that “it did create this resentment and betrayal feeling” in their relationship. It kind of happened a little bit behind my back where it was like, ‘By the way, I am starting a podcast.’ And I was like, ‘What?’”

She went on to explain why she didn’t want Jason to start a podcast.

“I felt like I finally found what I was meant to do on this planet and share my voice and make people laugh and have deep conversations and not so deep conversations. I always wanted my own radio show,” Kaitlyn said, adding that she wanted to be with someone with “a regular job” who “can kind of shine in their world, and I can shine in mine.”
