Former BacheloretteBecca Kufrin has been through the wringer this year. After rumors were confirmed in September that the former Bachelorette star and beau Garrett Yrigoyen were splitting, Kufrin had to start life all over again.
Becca and Garrett Split
As CELEB shared in a September 1st article, rumors that suggested Kufrin and Yrigoyen had called it quits turned out to be true. “On a September 1st episode of the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, Kufrin tearfully admitted that the relationship was over. The Bachelorette said emotionally, “I don’t think it’s going to come as a shock to anyone, but Garrett and I have decided to end our engagement…
…After many conversations, we came to this decision. It wasn’t something that we just arrived at one night. It wasn’t based solely off of one Instagram post or somebody else’s opinions or comments. There’s much more to it. To any relationship, there’s a lot of layers, and it’s not for me to divulge details. It’s no one’s business other than what I’m telling you right now.’
Kufrin added, ‘Just because we’ve arrived at this decision now doesn’t take away all of the years and the countless memories that we’ve made together. I will always look back at this time in my life with so much gratitude and love.’”
Kufrin Picks up the Pieces of Her Broken Heart
Although the couple had found love on Kufrin’s season of the Bachelorette, the pair couldn’t reconcile their political and life differences and opted to walk away from one another.
According to People, Kufrin spoke on the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast with pal and co-host Rachel Lindsey in mid-September about the split. Feeling good about life, Kufrin said, “‘I am single. Now that I can say that, it’s easier to talk about where I’m at,’ Kufrin explained.
‘I’m 30. I’m ready to maybe be OK with not having to throw all my eggs in one basket per se,’ she continued. ‘Just kind of enjoy the experience that life and dating have to offer.’
‘I feel like, it’s this weird, like magical spot that I’m in right now,’ the B the Label founder said of her current stage of life. ‘Maybe it’s the fact that I also moved to L.A. and it’s this new chapter. But it just feels like magic.'”
