Oh no! Courtney was caught returning her sparkling bling over the weekend! We’re sure she’s going to miss that gorgeous accessory!
Courtney Robertson and Bachelor Ben Flajnik‘s relationship is officially over –– she returned the ring! Courtney was caught by photographers returning her huge sparkler to a Neil Lane jewelry store in L.A. on Oct. 14!
Bachelor/Bachelorette couples are required to return the ring if the engagement doesn’t work out, according to TMZ.
After nearly eight months of dating, the Bachelor couple called it quits on Oct. 5 citing distance as one of many factors. Courtney’s based in L.A. and Ben lives in San Francisco.
“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.”
We’re sure Courtney felt a little sad about ditching the beautiful ring, but probably not about the relationship considering she was recently caught smooching Arie Luyendyk Jr., according to TMZ!
