October 12, 2012 10:00 AM by Lisa Princ

The recent split of The Bachelor’s Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson may have not come as a shock to viewers, but since they announced the news, we have been left wondering what really went wrong. Ben has finally broken his silence and revealed why the pair really split up.

The Bachelor’s most controversial couple, Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson recently responded to the rumors that they split up simply by thanking fans and not giving much of an explanation. But, in a new interview, Ben revealed why they did split up. “We weren’t as similar as we thought,” Flajnik told In Touch Magazine recently, adding that “things just changed.” Hmm, which is it Ben?

While Ben also said the split was a “mutual agreement,” he also wants to make sure fans know that the relationship was real. “We really did love each other. There are always going to be haters. There were so many naysayers, it was really like us against the world,” Flajnik added.

A few days after the split, Courtney Robertson was spotted without her massive engagement ring, and Ben explained that giving the ring back was part of their contract: “We’ve been together for 10 months. You have to be together for two years to keep the ring.”

We’re curious what you all think about the split? Were you surprised to learn that Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson broke up? Or were you one of the many fans who knew that it was bound to happen? We want to hear from you! Comment below to share your thoughts with us.

    It was bound to happen. She came across fake and insanely horrible, which has to be the way she is in real life. You can only fool someone for so long. Ben has a good heart and deserves the best!

    Robertson is beautiful, but lacks inner beauty and empathy. It was evident during the show. Ben, his mom and sister seemed very genuine and caring. It comes down to “when someone shows you who they are….BELIEVE THEM”. Ben tried to ignore it but it probably showed in other aspects of their lives. She will find her match…maybe that guy from Maynard’s show…Kyle (I think that was his name). He is the male version of her.
