Well that was fast! The Bachelorette’s Clare Crawley and Dale Moss have called it quits two months after their engagement aired.
Dale confirmed the split in a post on Instagram on Tuesday after rumors began swirling that they had broken up.
“I wanted share with you all that Clare and I have decided to go our separate ways,” he wrote. “We appreciate the love and support we’ve received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time. We strongly believe in leading with love and always remaining true to oneself – something our families have taught and instilled in us throughout our lives. We only hope the best things for one another.”

If you followed this story then you know Clare made Bachelorette history when she refused to continue filming claiming Dale was the love of her life. The former NFL star seemed to feel the same way and the couple got engaged on episode four making way for Tayshia Adams to step in as the new Bachelorette.
Clare said she knew early on that Dale was the only guy for her. She told the show’s producers, “I am so far in love with Dale. We have this connection where it feels like I’ve known him forever. It’s that intangible chemistry that you just can’t make up and you can’t replace.”
However, things between Clare and Dale soon went south. An insider told E! News the couple had been “fighting a lot” over their opposing plans for the future.
“They are mainly in disagreement over lifestyle preferences,” the source shared. “Dale wants to be in a lively city and focus on his career, and Clare is rooted in Sacramento to help care for her mom. It’s been very tense recently between them.”
