The Bachelorette star Clare Crawley is breaking her silence after the news broke that she and Dale Moss had split up.
The news was shared by Dale on Tuesday, which came as a surprise to Bachelorette fans, who were convinced that Clare and Dale had found true love.
But according to Clare’s new Instagram post, it seems that the news of them splitting up also came as a surprise to her.
And according to Clare, she didn’t participate in any joint statement with Dale.
She learned about him going public with their breakup along with everyone else.
Clare Crawley said she didn’t know about Dale Moss’ statement
The new statement from Clare was released this morning and she doesn’t hold back. It’s clear that she’s not happy with the way Dale decided to handle everything.
“I was made aware of a ‘mutual’ statement at the same time you all were, so I’ve needed some time to really digest this. Speaking for myself, my intentions with this relationship have always been very clear, so the truth is I am crushed,” Clare wrote in the post, hinting that she was on the receiving end of the breakup.
By all accounts, Clare was willing to make it work and Dale decided that the relationship was not for him.
“This was not what I expected or hoped for and am still trying to process this. 2020 was one hell of a year with COVID, battling severe anxiety post-show, balancing a public new relationship, all while slowly losing my mother. It hasn’t been ideal circumstances, but that is life right,” she explained.
“I have been looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel. Our relationship was not perfect but I can say that I was genuinely invested with all of my heart. I may not have all the answers, but I do know this – I will continue to show up, stand by my word, and be committed to love. Xo Clare.”
