Oh no! Ben and Courtney have officially parted ways because the ‘ups’ and ‘downs’ were too tough for them! Read on for their official 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,” the couple said in a statement released to In Touch magazine. “We have nothing but the utmost respect for each other, and both feel this is the right decision. 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.”
Courtney and Ben first broke up in February 2012 after Ben saw how conniving she was on The Bachelor after filming, but the two quickly reunited during an explosive tell-all reunion.
We’re definitely sad to see them split, but it will be interesting to see who they date next! Or who knows, maybe one of them will go on next season of the Bachelor Pad!
