According to In Touch, it’s splitsville for Flajnik and Robertson. We all shared Courtney’s vision of a happy ending but relationships can’t thrive on roses alone. What could have went wrong? Are they the latest couple to fall prey to the Bachelor curse? Or is something else amiss between them?
Ben and Courtney’s love affair began on the hit TV series, The Bachelor over a year ago. And now, just 9 short months after receiving the final rose, it’s all over. They both say, “We have nothing but the utmost respect for each other, and both feel this is the right decision.”
Flajnik and Robertson credited the breakup to a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs. They tried sharing a home in San Francisco. But when that didn’t work out; they decided to “take things slow.” However, due to time apart, distance from each other, and careers goals, the couple have grown apart and decided it would be best to go their separate ways.
They put an end to their love affair saying, “We continue to remain friends and will support each other in future endeavors. Thanks to everyone for your love and support, it’s been quite a ride.”
