Kaitlyn Bristowe Breaks Silence on Split From Shawn Booth

Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth announced their split earlier this month after three years of being engaged after her season of The Bachelorette.

Now, Kaitlyn is speaking for the first time about her split in a new episode of her podcast, Off the Vine With Kaitlyn Bristowe.

“It’s been a really hard few months now. I really did think we’d get through it,” she said.

Then, it seemed as if she was fighting back tears while saying, “To be honest, I thought we would choose the road where we would end up together. I just never took our commitment, or being engaged, lightly at all. I had the mindset of doing whatever it took to make it work. And now realizing, maybe to a fault, with all the hard moments in life come life lessons and that’s what I need to take from all of this. Sometimes you need to take a moment and take a step back to think about what you are fighting for and if it make sense for your long-term happiness.”

She continued, “There were some important fundamental values that weren’t lining up” and “some things we’d probably never see eye-to-eye on.”

“I want to reiterate to people, what you saw on social media was real and what we had was real love. But when it comes to roadblocks, and those fundamental values and getting through thing together, I just don’t think we were on the same page—and it’s painful to admit that. But you need that foundation and you need that partnership if it’s going to last forever,” she added.

She continued, “I know that there are so many bright days ahead and, in a weird way, as much I was dreading releasing that statement and accepting it was the end, it has let me close the door on that thought of forever and start envisioning my new future ahead, which I am excited about. I hope with all of this I can choose to look forward and not in the rearview mirror at what could have been and what could have been different. I just hope, through this time, I can help other women who might going through a hard time, men too, knowing there is light at the end of the tunnel. And you always have to choose the right path for you and for your own happiness, even if that means battling heartbreak or hard times.”

Kaitlyn Bristowe Reveals Shawn Booth Forgot Their Anniversary Last Year

Kaitlyn Bristowe is opening up about her relationship with Shawn Booth in a new episode of her podcast.

If you don’t know, the Bachelorette couple announced their split just last week.

“We met and had our first date, but I was also dating multiple men. So does that count as our anniversary? Or does our anniversary count as the time we got engaged?” Kaitlyn said about having a confusing anniversary date.

“He actually forgot our anniversary last year,” she continued during her talk with Wells Adams.

“He was like, ‘To be fair, you had just dumped a guy five minutes before deciding, I guess, I’ll pick this guy.’ Okay, you forgot our anniversary. At the end of the day, you’re being a d— right now. Just own that,” she added.

The episode of the podcast was recorded before Shawn and Kaitlyn announced their split.

The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn Bristowe Addresses Shawn Booth Split Rumors

Fans of Bachelor Nation’s Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth were concerned that they may have split up and ended their engagement.

Kaitlyn has been posting cryptic messages, and hasn’t posted a photo with Shawn since July 23, so fans became concerned.

“So here’s the truth. I’m in Canada because every single year I have made a promise to myself and my family that I will come up every August and enjoy downtime with the people that I love in a country that I love. Family is so important to me. Relationships in general are very important to me. I put relationships first,” she explained. “Shawn did not come up with me because the guy just bought a gym. He bought a business. He has started something huge. He is the most dedicated person I’ve ever met. He’s gonna have to be there for months … We are both so busy and unfortunately that means we’re spending all of this time apart,” Kaitlyn said on her Off the Vine podcast.

Kaitlyn added, “If you’ve ever been a person who is running a successful brand or business and a person who is doing the same but in a different career path you know times can be tough. You are both always away, you’re exhausted at the end of the day, sometimes the relationship isn’t being put first, but does that mean you call it quits? No. You love the sh-t out of each other and you work through it — and yourselves to be better. And you know that times aren’t always going to be smooth sailing. … You just have to get through those hurdles and enjoy the good times. Shawn and I are 110 percent committed to each other and, yes, we are still together.”

“To be honest, I didn’t think I would have to do this but also I shouldn’t be surprised. I was on a reality show that showed me getting engaged to somebody. [People] will become invested in us and our love story,” she continued. “I haven’t been wearing my engagement ring and not even noticing myself people have pointed out that I apparently haven’t been liking his photos on Instagram.”

Shawn and Kaitlyn‘s love story was followed on the 2015 season of The Bachelorette, which ended with them getting engaged.
