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.
