It’s over. Former Bachelorette star Katie Thurston and boyfriend John Hersey split after more than one year of dating, the former couple confirmed during the late hours of Monday, June 20. Why did they break up? Keep reading for details.
“Statement: No, we aren’t together,” the former leading lady, 31, wrote via her Instagram Stories. Their uncoupling seemed so sudden that Katie’s cryptic post left many fans confused about if she was actually talking about John, 28. However, the bartender was much more direct when he released his own message shortly after.
“As Katie stated earlier, we are no longer dating. The decision was not made lightly and it was obviously not an easy one to make,” he wrote via his Instagram Stories. “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,” he also said. “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 began dating in November 2021, shortly after her engagement to Blake Moynes ended.
