Clayton Echard29, and Susie Evans, 29, both nurse a broken heart. Ex Bachelor stars announced their split via Instagram on September 23, and you better grab some tissues! in the post they both wrote, “It is with an incredibly heavy heart that we wanted to share that we have decided to go our separate ways. Anyone who has ever been in love knows that it was a painful decision that was not taken lightly.”

“We understand that there will probably be many questions before this decision – social networks it’s definitely a big moment, and we’ve kept a lot of our experience together private, as I’m sure most can understand,” their lengthy statement continued. Clasey (as fans called the duo) went on to say that despite the many positives, there was still “a significant amount of pain.” And that they “were not prepared for the outside forces that interfered with our ability to heal not only as individuals, but as a couple.”

Despite this, both are “focused on continuing to work on ourselves so we can be the best version of ourselves.” The broadcasters added that although it’s a “difficult time”, they will still “support” each other after the split. “Although Clasey is no more, we hope that our communities can support us individually as we move forward with love and respect for one another. Thank you to everyone who supported our relationship. It means a lot more than you’ll ever know,” their joint posts concluded.

Susie and ex Bachelor the star met during Season 26 from the popular ABC dating series. They didn’t originally end up together on the show, but in reality got together after the dramatic finale. During his season, Clayton told all three finalists that he had a crush on them. Susie’s finalists include Gabby Windy31, a Rachel Requia26.

The Virginia Beach native told him she wasn’t comfortable with him being intimate with two other women, leading to a rift between the two. Clayton eventually sent Susie home, but then wanted to one more chance with her. Susie agreed, but only if Clayton broke up with Gabby and Rachel. “I was very shocked by how it all ended,” she said during the finals. “The way you treated me, the way you turned around, then my attitude towards you changed. I couldn’t even defend myself. I felt so vulnerable. I felt like that night you made me question my inner voice, my intuition, everything. I felt like a terrible person. It was a shame to be honest. You made me feel wrong and bad and it was miserable.’ Susie after all rejected him during the final rose ceremony, and they didn’t make it official try again until the season is over. After all the drama, it would have been better if this relationship ended amicably.
