Although both Maurissa and Riley have remained tight-lipped on the reasoning behind their split, fans have been reading into tweets and social media posts liked by Maurissa in the weeks following.

Maurissa also recently liked a tweet by The Bachelor’s Kelley Flanagan, reading, “When you learn that person’s behavior has more to do with their own internal struggle than it ever did with you…You learn Grace.”

Demi Burnett is accused of stirring the pot in her tweets about Maurissa Gunn and Riley Christian’s split

Given that details of the split have been few and far between, fans aren’t quite sure what to make of Demi’s new insight. Several commenters even accused her of exaggerating how much she knows.

“I’m not really sure that Riley or Maurissa confided in you about their break up and if they’re not talking about it then nobody should be talking about it,” one of the most popular replies read. “Bachelor alums need to move on the coat tails aren’t long enough to keep hanging onto IMO only”

“Then why bring it up in the first place?” another wrote. “You know it’s obviously peaked everyone’s interest. This should’ve been brought up with Maurissa or Riley – it’s their business, not yours to air out with no other info.”
