Another Bachelor couple bites the dust!
After being engaged for nine months, Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson ended their relationship last week.
The reality stars issued a statement to In Touch: "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. We have nothing but the utmost respect for each other, and both feel this is the right decision."
Courtney has already been seen out and about not wearing her 3-carat cushion-cut custom Neil Lane engagement ring worth about $85,000 and Ben posted on a site, "Welp, another weekend ahead and there is so much going on in San Francisco, I can't even begin to tell you how crazy of a weekend its going to be."
The shocking news of their split is even more surprising because the pair recently hinted at marriage locations on Twitter.
Ben Tweeted, "Should we get married here? 😉 a picture of @bugrobertson and I observing a wedding at Baker beach in San Francisco. Scotch is pooped from running all day."
What do you think of Ben and Courtney breaking up?
