The couple, who made history on Bachelor in Paradise in summer 2021 as the first Black couple to get engaged on the program, revealed the news to fans with a statement.

“We have decided to go our separate ways. Never did we imagine this, but we’ve come to a point where we both need to work on ourselves,” Maurissa and Riley shared with People.

The former couple added, “We’ve appreciated everyone’s love and support so far throughout our journey and we just ask that you please respect our privacy as we navigate through this.”

Riley and Maurissa were one of three couples to get engaged in the season finale of Bachelor in Paradise, alongside Joe Amabile and Serena Pitt, and Kenny Braasch and Mari Pepin.
