It's been a thorny time for Bachelor Nation.
Over the past few days, there have been not one but two Bachelor breakups. Katie Thurston and John Hersey announced on June 20 that they've gone their separate ways with the former Bachelorette writing on Instagram Stories, "Statement: No we aren't together."
John also confirmed they "are no longer dating," noting "this decision was not made lightly, and it was obviously not an easy one to make." However, he thanked their fans for their support, adding "We could not (and would not) be here without you."
While John appeared on Katie's season of The Bachelorette last year, he was sent home week two and she ended up getting engaged to Blake Moynes. Katie and Blake announced their split in October, and about a month later E! News confirmed Katie and John were dating.
"I'm struggling to say that Nayte and I will be going our separate ways," Michelle wrote on Instagram Stories June 17, "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."
Michelle, who got engaged to Nayte on her season of The Bachelorette last year, called him her "best friend" and noted the love she has for him is "incredibly strong" and that she "will 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," she continued. "At the same time, I'm deeply hurting and will need time and space to work through this heartbreak."
Nayte echoed Michelle's sentiments and reiterated they only want the best for each other. "Michelle and I will always cheer each other on," he wrote in part of his own statement, "but moving forward, we will be cheering from a distance."
