The Bachelor's Peter Weber and Madison Prewett Have Split, Surprising No One
In news that likely doesn't shock anyone, The Bachelor's Peter Weber and Madison Prewett have officially broken up.
Following their awkward reunion on The Bachelor's live finale, both Weber and Prewett took to Instagram with confirmation that they had decided to end their relationship. It's been a grand total of two days, but is anyone really shocked that this was coming?
"I want to start by acknowledging the incredible group of women that I had the privilege of getting to know this season," wrote Weber in his own statement alongside a somber photo of himself standing outside by a wooden fence. "Thank you for coming on this journey with me. I learned so many lessons from all of you that I will carry with me. Madi, thank you for your patience and unconditional love. You’re the epitome of a woman who carries herself with grace, stands by what she believes in, and loves whole heartedly. That love is something I feel so grateful to have felt and will take a piece of that with me always going forward."
"After a lot of honest conversations, we have agreed that this is what makes most sense for the two of us. The love and respect I have for Madi will continue to endure," he concluded.
Just in case you haven't been keeping up, previously Peter had proposed to Hannah Ann before breaking things off due to the fact that he was still very much in love with Madison. Weber's mother Barb, however, was not Madison's biggest fan. But surely Madison's "transgressions" with Barb had nothing to do with the breakup, right? Right.
Prewett released her own statement on the matter.
"So incredibly thankful for this amazing journey I’ve had the honor of being a part of," she wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of the now ex-couple. I have grown so much and am stronger than I was going in. I have learned the importance of acceptance, forgiveness, and grace."
"As Peter and I have decided to go our separate ways, I am confident that we will both move in the direction of our purpose and never forget that God has a plan in all things. I will always love and respect him. I am convinced our paths were meant to cross and we are both better because they did. @pilot_pete you are an amazing guy and I’m thankful for you. I will always be your biggest fan. And to the amazing women I met this season, I will love you for life."
We can't say we didn't see this coming, but hey, the drama has certainly made for some fantastic viewing every step of the way.
