It seems thatÂ Jake Pavelka andÂ Vienna Girardi aren’t the only reality TV couple to call it quits this month. Jillian Harris, star ofÂ ABC‘sÂ The Bachelorette, and her fiance (and final rose recipient), Ed Swiderski have reportedly split as well. The reality TV stars confirm the news to Us Weekly. Keep reading for more details about their shocking break up…
Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski have called off their engagement and broken up, according to Us Weekly. The couple, who met, fell in love, and got engaged onÂ ABC‘sÂ The Bachelorette, have been together for over a year, despite tabloid reports of infidelity along the way.Â ”I love him and I’m really sad, but I have to look out for me,” Jillian Harrison tells Us Weekly about the break-up.
Ed Swiderski is also upset about the split, but feels that it is certainly the right choice for them both.Â ”We’re both kind of resetting,” he tells the magazine. “Jillian isn’t happy and I’m definitely sad about the whole thing, but we’ve got to work through some things on our own if we decide to move forward.”
This isn’t the first time the couple has hit a rough patch, but they’ve managed to work through it in the past. Shortly after their engagement went public, tabloids reported that Ed Swiderski was cheating on Jillian Harris with two women during and after the filming of the show. Jillian Harris chose to stand by her man, but their relationship woes didn’t go away.
“There’s bumps on the road, and we don’t always deal with them properly,” Jillian Harris said last month. “Our life is not always perfect.”
