The couple announced their split via a joint statement in which they insisted they still have "love and admiration" for each other. The celebrities announced earlier today that they have made a decision to end their engagement and break up.
Back in June, Us Weekly reported that things were a different matter in private after Nick, 36, and Vanessa, 29, were spotted, looking "miserable" on board a plane to Los Angeles. However, there were a fair number of fans who suspected that this relationship was far more flawed than either Nick or Vanessa wanted to admit.
In March, viewers watched as Nick Viall popped the question to Vanessa Grimaldi on the season finale of "The Bachelor", and she said yes.
"They are still very much in contact with each other and trying to be there for one another". News, Nick even said that they planned to continue hanging out in LA.
Another sign of trouble?
"It's with a great amount of heartbreak for the both us as we have chose to end our engagement", reads a statement sent by a rep for the bearded Bachelor star. The relationship is done almost five months after the season ended. "It seemed like from the start, he just did Bachelor to get on Dancing with the Stars". Vanessa reportedly was jealous of the time he spent with professional partner Peta Murgatroyd.
Finally, as the star in "The Bachelor", he chose Grimaldi over runner-up Raven Gates, and proposed to Grimaldi with that diamond ring. "There are so many awesome things that we have in our relationship but there are also things that we continue to work towards".
