This news comes after she recently denied rumors that they have broken up.
“To those who have supported Nayte and and I, including Bachelor Nation, I know I speak for the both of us when saying having a relationship in the public eye has not been easy,” Michelle began her statement posted on her Instagram stories.
“I’m struggling to say that Nayte and I will be going our separate ways but I stand with him in knowing the heaviness that is present in both of our hearts as this relationship has been very real for us.”
She went on to claim that Nayte immediately became her bestfriend and that her love for him is “incredibly strong,” and that she would never stop wanting to see him succeed.
“I will always acknowledge and appreciate the adventures, support, and growth both Nayte and this experience have brought me. At the same time, I’m deeply hurting and will need time and space to work through this heartbreak,” she concluded.
“As we grow and learn, we also realize that sometimes somebody that you hold dear to your heart isn’t somebody that you’re meant to spend the rest of your life with,” he wrote. “Michelle and I are going to move forward separately. Hearts are heavy, emotions are high, and we are dealing with this the best way we can.”
“We genuinely fell in love and we genuinely became each other’s best friends,” he added. “Michelle and I will always hear each other on, but moving forward we will be cheering from a distance.”
As we previously reported back in May, Michelle took to Instagram stories to set the records straight regarding the status of her relationship with Nayte after reports of split surfaced and a video of her not wearing the engagement ring went viral, denying that they had broken up.
