Oh no! Everyone’s favorite ‘Bachelorette’ couple, Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray, have ended their engagement, called off their wedding, and split up.
Andi Dorfman, 27, and Josh Murray, 30, have decided to go their separate ways. Just days after making their last appearance together as a couple on The Bachelor season premiere, the former Bachelorette couple have released a statement to confirm that their love is over. So sad.
Andi Dorfman & Josh Murray End Engagement — Confirmed
This is such bad news.
On Thursday, Jan. 8, Andi and Josh announced that they were no longer a couple — and that their engagement was officially off, reports TMZ.
“After several months of being engaged and working on our relationship, we have decided that it’s best for both of us to go our separate ways,” reads the statement released by their rep.
“We are very sad that it has come to this point, but this is what’s best for both of us individually.”
As you might remember, Andi and Josh met and fell in love while filming season 10 of The Bachelorette. Josh got down on one knee and proposed to Andi on the July 28, 2014 finale, bringing viewers to tears.
Of course, Andi said yes to Josh’s proposal, picking him as her meant-to-be over 24 other contestants vying for her love. One of those contestants was the current Bachelor, Chris Soules.
Sadly, it didn’t last — and HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY confirm that even Josh’s own family was unaware that he and Andi had broken up. Yikes.
The shocking split comes just three days after Andi and Josh appeared happy and still very much in love on the season premiere of The Bachelor, Monday night, Jan. 5.
We still can’t believe this is happening!
Andi Chose Josh Even After Nick Begged Her To Pick Him
On the After The Final Rose special that aired on July 28, Andi came face-to-face with the man whose proposal she turned down for Josh — Nick Viall.
“The hard part is…feeling like you did,” he said to Andi on the live after show. “If you weren’t in love with me, I’m just not sure why you made love with me?”
Andi was shocked and upset that Nick outed their sexual encounter, but thankfully it didn’t interfere with her and Josh riding off into the sunset together that night.
“I think I love that he is genuinely my best friend,” Andi told Jezebel in an interview after her and Josh became engaged.
“I call him for everything. He’s the last person I want to talk to at night, the first person I want to talk to in the morning. I just want to tell him everything. I can be whoever I want around him.”
Josh & Andi — Still Posting Selfies Before Split
Not only were Josh and Andi seemingly happy to appear together on Monday night, they both posed for adorable selfies together.
As a matter of fact, by the looks of their cute selfies, you wouldn’t even be able to tell that their relationship was trouble in paradise.
“Bachelor premiere with @andi_dorfman NOW!!” is the caption Josh gave to the photo of himself and Andi looking snug in the back of a car on Monday night.
So sad. Our thoughts are with Andi and Josh during this heartbreaking time.
