Bachelor's Ben Higgins & Lauren Bushnell Split

Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell, who met on the January 2016 season of The Bachelor, have split up.

“It is with heavy hearts that we announce our decision to go our separate ways,” they tell People in a statement. “We feel fortunate for the time we had together, and will remain friends with much love and respect for one another. We wish nothing but the best for each other, and ask for your support and understanding at this time.”

Ben, 29, chose Lauren, 27, over future Bachelorette JoJo Fletcher and the couple began their journey. They had a Freeform reality show Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After? Ben and Lauren have faced constant relationship rumors since they went public.

    had a feeling this was coming

  • Max

    He should’ve picked JoJo!!

  • RitzTarits Sim

    Am not surprised. Then next will be Jojo and Jordan. When an engagement takes too looooong, the couple will get tired of each other.

  • Max

    Well, The Bachelor and Bachelorette engagements should be long, I mean those people get engaged after two months of “dating” and during these two months they probably spend three days in total together, so they basically don’t know each other!!

  • Laila

    At first I thought she’s way too mature for him, turned out the other way. Ben seems such a great guy, there’s a lucky lady out there who will marry him. Lauren can party all the way back to airport and date all those losers who will suck up for that little social media fame.

  • Maximilian

    So Ben H. could be on ”Bachelor in Paradise” this season?!..Would’ve been fun, because they obviously can’t get Chris Soules anymore…

  • swedishskies

    No surprise here. I always thought he should have picked JoJo.

  • Maria

    No, he should not have picked JoJo. He should never have said,”I love you” to both women, even if he did. The woman chosen would never get past the fact he loved the other woman too. That has been an issue for them from the start. Jojo is a fame seeker and Ben is just too down to earth and simple. They would never have worked out either.

    shes not a famewhore. you dont know her so insulting her that makes you pathetic. dont include jojo in this conversation. youre nothing but a j0j0 hater so i suggest you leave this page and stop insulting her online. stop being a troll hating on jojo here when the article isnt about her

  • Melissa Forrester

    do you still want Ben and JoJo together or not anymore now?

  • Melissa Forrester

    do you still want Ben and JoJo together or only in the past?

  • Max

    Well she’s engaged now and he’s apparently moved on with some other girl, so no probably not. But I don’t like Jordan (JoJo’s fiancé)

  • Melissa Forrester

    No he’s single now. Him and Ashley are just friends. OK why don’t you like Jordan?

  • Max

    I don’t know he seems so fake and I think that the fact he came from the NFL world was very appealing to JoJo, I honestly thought Luke was the right choice for her.

  • Maria

    I did not insult her. She likes the fame far more than he did. Just a fact not an insult. This article is about Ben and Lauren’s issues and I don’t think JoJo was right for him either. I happen to like JoJo but she is better with Jordan. Not an insult. Just observation!

  • Melissa Forrester

    She’s not a fame seeker though. Calling her a fame seeker is an insult, judgemental and disrespectful and clearly you don’t know that. You don’t even know her so why are you insulting her a fameseeker? Don’t bother calling her that in here just to make yourself feel better. Ben and Lauren have their own show so their the ones that wants fame more than her. It’s unfair that you’re calling her a fameseeker when Ben and Lauren is the one who wants fame more than her. Ben even has his own podcast so don’t call her a fameseeker online. It’s just really unnecessary to say online She’s not a famewhore and you assume she loves fame when she doesn’t. Ben and Lauren are the ones who loves fame. They have their own show and now Ben has his own podcast so how does she love fame more than they do? It’s an insult to JoJo to call her a fameseeker cause you don’t know her at all. You clearly don’t understand that fame seeker is an insult so don’t argue that I’m wrong. Calling someone a fame seeker is disrespectful and judgemental in every way.

  • Melissa Forrester

    OK if that’s what you think. He looks real to me though. I don’t think his fake but it’s your opinion
