Matt & Chelsie From ‘The Bachelor’ Have Broken Up & We Don’t Know How To Process This

Dr. Matt and Chelsie from The Bachelor have announced their split today, and we simply do not know how to feel.

Each of them took to Instagram this afternoon to reveal their breakup, after we watched the two science nerds fall in love with each other on national TV back in September.

In a statement, Dr. Matt wrote that “our relationship hasn’t translated from filming to the real, everyday world as we had hoped”.

“Chels and I have made some beautiful memories together that I’ll always cherish, and I wish her nothing but the absolute best.

“Chels is a very special woman and I want her to find the happiness she deserves.”


He also emphasised that the breakup has nothing to do with any other woman, writing, “For those who wonder if there’s someone else for me right now, there absolutely is not.

“It’s no one’s fault, it’s just life.”

Chelsie posted a series of pictures from their TV relationship, writing:

“Matt showed me what it was like to be respected in a relationship and I am so thankful for that… I wish him nothing but the best.”

She apologised to people who are “invested in our relationship” and also stressed to her fans to be kind online “as you don’t know what is going on behind the screen”.

Fellow Bachelor contestants Emma and Elly have already come out in support of Chelsie.

Speaking to Punkee after the finale, Dr. Matt and Chelsie gushed about how they were excited to navigate this new chapter in the outside world together, saying that they were much in love.

“We’ve got a really healthy strong relationship, we’re both very confident in that,” Dr. Matt said.
