Less than a year after saying their vows on national television, Bachelor in Paradise couple Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone are calling it quits.
“It hurts to announce that at this moment, we have mutually decided to separate,” they couple said in a statement to BachelorNation.com, “Never did we imagine this scenario, but we’ve come to a point where we both need to work on ourselves.”
They continued, “We are best friends that love and care for each other so deeply. We’ve appreciated everyone’s love and support so far throughout our journey and we just ask that you please respect our privacy as we navigate through this.”
Their wedding may have been upstaged by the drama of the BIP cast. Alas, you can’t have a wedding on BIP without drama and John Paul Jones brought the drama by picking a fight with Derek for going after Tayshia. (when really Tayshia went after Derek, but we digress). Oh, and did we mention that fight was in the middle of Chris and Krystal’s cocktail hour. .
In happier times, Krystal shared a statement about her marriage. “We are so excited to start this new chapter of our lives together,” she said “We will have each other’s backs forever.”
Forever may have ended when the couple decided to go their separate ways. We wish them both the best on their new journey.
