And when it comes to what may have led to their split, a source told L&S, “They couldn’t agree on many life decisions. Ben was constantly trying to make Lauren live in Colorado, and Lauren couldn’t stand it. She missed LA and wanted to move back, but knew that wasn’t an option.”

Ben and Lauren’s alleged split comes just weeks after it was announced that their show, Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After, would not be coming back with them at the head.  Instead, the network reworked the Happily Ever After franchise with Bachelor twins, Emily and Haley Ferguson as the stars.

The show’s somewhat “cancellation” was no doubt induced by the couple’s engagement struggles, which were captured on the ABC Family show.   HEA cameras were even rolling when Ben decided to indefinitely postpone their engagement.
