Peter Weber, 29, is officially single. The Bachelor confirmed he’s split from girlfriend Kelley Flanagan, 28, in an Instagram post on Dec. 31. “Love is a funny thing. It can make you you feel on top of the world and it can make you feel a pain you wish didn’t exist,” the California native began his post, including a romantic photo of the duo snuggling and looking out into the sunset. “I’m here to share that Kelley and I have decided to go our separate ways. While our relationship was filled with countless beautiful memories, our relationship simply didn’t work out in the end,” he added.
The pair confirmed their romance two months after the Bachelor finale in May of this year. Although their relationship lasted less than a year, Peter appears to have no hard feelings towards her. “Kelley is someone I will always have a special love for. Someone I have learned more from than she will ever understand,” he went on. “Someone I am so thankful came into my life and someone who I will always wish all of life’s greatest blessings on. These moments in life always hurt, but in my opinion that shows you it was worth the time you spent together. Thank you Kelley,” he added. In recent weeks, Peter has shared a number of photos with his now-ex, including snaps from a romantic hike and another sweet photo of them kissing. “Love having a sidekick do the craziest things with me!” Kelley commented on a recent photo.
Rumors began swirling around Peter and Kelley back in April after it was reveled they were quarantining together with Dustin Kendrick. “Are we dating? No,” Peter said on Ben Higgins and Ashley Iaconetti’s Almost Famous podcast. “I’m the first person to admit that I’ve been through so much. The last thing I need to do is jump into another relationship,” he added at the time. Just two months later, however, the pair were Instagram official with a sweet kissing photo! “You caught me. Let the adventure begin,” he captioned the romantic snap, taken on a helicopter or airplane. Prior to hooking up with Kelley, he was engaged to Hannah Ann Sluss from his season of The Bachelor, but sadly they broke up within weeks. He then also dated contestant Madison Prewett until March.
Peter and Kelley also had the stamp of approval from his mother Barbara and dad Peter Sr. Dad Peter commented on their IG official photo, “What more can I say Chop Chop but a match made in heaven. Love you guys,” as Barb showed her support with rose emojis and hearts! “Serendipity,” she also captioned a post of her own about the couple. “Kelley’s just someone that is just, honestly, there for me, and someone that I just really really appreciate,” also confessed to Ben and Ashley. “I’m trying to be there for her and we just get along really well. We have good chemistry. Who knows what the future holds. I’m not saying nothing could happen. But right now, I’m just taking things really slow and enjoying each other’s time,” he added.Click to Subscribe to Get Our Free HollywoodLife Daily Newsletter to get the hottest celeb news.
