The Bachelor Franchise is always brimming with gossip, rumors and break up stories. Another pair from Bachelor Nation has called it quits. John Hersey confirmed that he and Katie Thurston are no longer together after the latter’s cryptic post.
After 7 months of dating, Katie Thurston and John Hersey have called it quits. The Bachelorette star fueled break up rumors with her Instagram Story post. Katie wrote, “Statement: no, we aren’t together.” After that, John issued a message on his Instagram Story a few hours later, as reported by Hollywood Life.
I love being able to share special moments with you all — the funny ones. The happy ones. The outrageous, embarrassing, and heartfelt ones. But I don’t know if it will ever get easier to share the sad ones. As Katie stated earlier, we are no longer dating. This decision was not made lightly, and it was obviously not an easy one to make. I appreciate every one of you that has supported us throughout this journey. We could not (and would not) be here without you.
Katie and John met on The Bachelorette during Katie’s season. Katie, on the other hand, sent him home after the second week. She ended up getting engaged to Blake Moynes, however they broke up months after the season finale aired in October 2021.
The Bachelorette star started spending more and more time with John, and in November 2021, they made their relationship public. While Katie was still with Blake, John defended his relationship with Katie, explaining that it was always platonic. In December 2021, they made their red carpet debut at Stephen Lovegrove’s First Noelle Ball.
Katie and John were active on Instagram until April 2022, when they stopped posting about each other. Katie’s most recent snapshot was of her kissing John. She wrote, “You make my heart melt.” Well, things have now ended for the two. Check out the picture below.
