The Bachelor Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff are officially broken up – the former couple issued a joint statement on Thursday May 28 confirming that the wedding is cancelled and they are going their separate ways. So, if you were one of those diehard Bachelor fans who were holding out for a happy ending and a televised wedding – it’s NOT going to happen.
Mike Fleiss, the creator of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette broke the news on Twitter on Thursday afternoon by tweeting, “Sad news to report: @souleschris and @whitbisch are no longer engaged.” Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff issued a cliché “we have broken up and will still be friends,” statement via their publicists. The less than creative joint statement read, “Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules have mutually and amicably decided to end their engagement. They part with nothing but respect and admiration for one another and will continue to be supportive friends. They wish to thank everyone who has supported them through this journey.”
CDL has been reporting Chris and Whitney’s break-up for weeks now since our inside source confirmed that the couple was done but it was obviously the relationship was over when Whitney left Los Angeles and moved back to Chicago, and ditched Chris during his last two performances on Dancing With The Stars. However, Bachelor producers pressured the couple to keep the showmance alive until after The Bachelorette premiere this month, to try and downplay the negative press that would come along with it. Every time another Bachelor or Bachelorette couple fails and breaks up after the show is done filming, the franchise lose a few more viewers who realize how fake the show really is.
