In New Year’s news that shocked fans of The Bachelorette, Brooke Blurton and Darvid Garayeli announced their breakup, just over a month since the finale of The Bachelorette aired.

If you can trust Instagram portrayals of celebrities’ lives, the couple appeared to be going strong right up until Christmas, posting cute Insta snaps, Stories, and TikToks together as recently as December 28.

As we previously reported, Darvid broke the news of the couple’s split on Instagram on January 2, a day after Brooke’s birthday.

“Starting the new year off with an end to a chapter and hopefully the beginning of another. Unfortunately Brooke and I have parted ways. Whilst we both genuinely thought we were each other’s person, things change and that’s okay. Please respect our privacy and that at the end of the day we are both just people with real feelings. Thank you so much for being considerate, a lot of lessons learned,” he wrote.

Brooke later took to her Instagram stories confirming the split, but expressed her surprise at the news going public.

“It was definitely agreed to part ways, I just wanted to do it privately, amicably, and respectfully,” Brooke said.

The breakup has come as a huge shock to Bachelorette fans after Darvid relocated from Queensland to Melbourne to be with Brooke and put his house on the market.

Darvid has now broken his silence on Instagram, uploading a new photo thanking people for their support.

“Back home with my loved ones… and my washing. Thanks for all the supportive messages, putting on a brave face 🤙 ,” Darvid captioned the photo.
