"It's been a bit of a challenge today and tonight," he shared, "and when I'm prepared and feeling ready to talk through how these things also impact my life and what's next for me, I will share those as I always try to hold my standard to share specifically what I ask of my guests."

Jason shared a lengthy joint statement from him and Kaitlyn on Instagram Aug. 6 confirming that he and the Off the Vine podcast host had parted ways after four years. 

"After sharing the news with family and close friends first, and taking the time to properly process it ourselves, we are saddened with heavy hearts to share that we have decided to end our engagement," the former couple wrote. "We are thankful for all of you who gave us the time and space to process this life altering decision as there are many emotions and changes to navigate."

The pair—who first began dating in 2019 after Jason appeared on Kaitlyn's podcast before getting engaged in 2021—shared that they'll continue to co-parent their dogs Ramen and Pinot while also making it clear that there is no animosity following their split.

 "Continuing our friendship is incredibly important to both of us," they continued in their note. "We feel grateful to be ending our engagement with love and respect for each other. It's heartbreaking and sad to say goodbye, but our care and admiration for one another will never die."

As for Kaitlyn, she shared that she was taking a step back from social media while she heals.

"See you soon. Bye for now," the former Dancing With the Stars champion wrote on her Instagram Stories Aug. 6. "If everyone can say some sort of prayer for both of our hearts we would love that. I just know social media can be awful so taking a little break."
