Another ‘Bachelor’ pair bites the dust. Grant Kemp and Lace Morris have decided to call it quits just three months after getting engaged on ‘Bachelor in Paradise.’ She has actually already moved out of the home they had together.
“It really was mutual,” Lace, 25, told Entertainment Tonight about her split from Grant, 28,. “We both have our issues we need to work on, and we can’t really give each other what we need at this time. It’s just not the right timing. We have so much love for each other, and it’s weird because the chemistry is there, and I’m thinking, ‘Why can’t we make this work?’ But it’s just not possible right now.”
We first met Lace, during Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor, but she left the show after opening up about wanting to improve herself. She then went onto Bachelor in Paradise and met and fell for Grant. The two of them actually both got matching “Grace” tattoos — their couple name.
“This [relationship] has been one of my biggest tests,” she said. “I just started working on myself right before Paradise, so I really haven’t had much time to do it. This was kind of an eye-opener. I still have more to work on.” So, what went wrong? Well, the arguing got to be too much.
“For a month, we were kind of starting to bicker, and it was a thing of, something’s got to give,” she said. “It was a cycle we couldn’t break…I think he’s an amazing man. I’m super sad that it ended, but I know it’s for the best right now.”
Grant also confirmed split, and only had good things to say about her, but that with time, things just got worse. “When you’re in a regular relationship there’s already challenges you face. We did everything backwards,” he said. “I don’t regret any of the choices I made. I don’t regret going on the show…It kind of fast-forwarded our whole situation. We figured everything out now that it takes most people a couple years to figure out.”
As for if they’d ever get back together, well she’s hopeful. “I could only pray or hope that there is a future with us,” she said. “I see one, but I just don’t know when. Now I have to take it day by day and fix my issues, he can fix his. But I pray we’d have a future, because we had something really special.”
