The pair, who worked together and met on the “Bachelorette” show 15 months ago, didn’t have a romantic spark on screen but fell in love quickly after filming.
Recently, the two announced their breakup on social media. Katie simply shared: “Declaration: we are no longer together.” And the man, John, had more to say: “As Katie said, we are no longer in a relationship, and this decision was not made lightly. Yes, obviously it’s not easy either. I love sharing special moments in my life with fans – funny, happy, outrageous, embarrassing or heartfelt, but I don’t know if I can do it It’s easy to share the grief with you. Thank you to everyone who has supported us on this journey, without you we couldn’t (and wouldn’t) be here.”
When Katie starred in Season 17 of The Bachelorette, she was already engaged to Blake Moynes, but the two announced their split in October of that year. A month later, Katie and John started dating. Katie’s agent commented in November last year: “Katie and John are known to have become close friends during the show’s playoffs, and John has been with her through all the big changes in her life, and they are delighted to explore this newfound romance.”
In March of this year, Katie and John also posted a post to celebrate their one-year anniversary. Katie jokingly wrote under a photo of the two affectionately looking at each other: “A year ago, I couldn’t believe I was here with you. Sorry to all the Bachelorette viewers, we screwed up, this Let’s count what we owe you.”
