Krystal Nielson and Chris Randone, who found love during season 5 of "Bachelor In Paradise," have split after 8 months of marriage.
The estranged couple provided a joint statement regarding their split on February 14:
"It hurts to announce that at this moment, we have mutually decided to separate. Never did we imagine this scenario, but we’ve come to a point where we both need to work on ourselves. 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."
The couple had been openly romantic about one another since they got together. They were even working on expanding their family. The news of their split has come as quite a shock to Bachelor Nation. While Nielson and Randone were "villains" on their seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette respectively, they seemed like the perfect match for one another. Their chemistry set off fireworks and the love they had for one another was strong.
I have high hopes that they will find their way back to one another. Paradise isn't over!
