Uh oh. ‘Bachelor’ Ben Higgins may no longer be in paradise, as a new report claims he and fiancee Lauren Bushnell are feeling ‘extreme tension’ just two weeks after the finale. Could they be heading for a split? Find out all the details here.
Lauren Bushnell, 26, is reportedly “traumatized” after watching now-fiance Ben Higgins, 27, tell JoJo Fletcher that he loved her, too, shortly before proposing on The Bachelor‘s season finale. So much, in fact, that they’ve been experiencing “extreme tension” since the finale aired two weeks ago, a new report claims.
Lauren travelled to Ben’s hometown in Colorado earlier this week, but she won’t permanently move there until next month. But regardless, a new report claims she’s feeling unsteady about the relationship.
“Lauren tries not to think about it,” a source told Life & Style. “But she’s traumatized that Ben told another girl he loved her.” As you’ll recall, Ben told both Lauren and JoJo he loved them before proposing to Lauren. JoJo went on to become The Bachelorette, and her season will start airing on ABC in May.
“Everyone around them can feel the awkwardness,” the source added. “It’s unclear if they will last. Things between them are getting worse.” And it doesn’t help that Ben labeled their first date in Denver as a “traumatic” experience — they got caught in an elevator together. There was also a report claiming Ben was making secret calls to his ex.

“Ben values his ex’s opinion on things,” another source told Life and Style. “After breaking up, they would catch up here and there, but they got closer in the past year. Even when Ben got engaged to Lauren, that didn’t stop them from talking.”
We hate to say it, but none of this sounds good for Ben and Lauren.
