Watch: Kyle Cooke on Why Carl Radke and Lindsay Hubbard Split

Bravo fans are getting new insight into what led to Carl Radke and Lindsay Hubbard's shocking breakup.

Nearly two months after the Summer House costars ended their engagement, their longtime friend Kyle Cooke shared new details chronicling what exactly went wrong in his costars' relationship.

"It's no secret that they've been in constant couple's therapy ever since they basically started dating," the Winter House star exclusively told E! News. "From my from my perspective, there were times where I was like, 'Man, it's almost like the only time they could communicate on any given week was in therapy."

Despite seeking counseling from both their individual therapists and a couple's therapist, Carl and Lindsay couldn't get on the same page.

"It's almost like they couldn't even communicate anymore without a third party," Kyle explained, "and Carl was like, 'That is not how I'm gonna spend the next 50 years of my life."

Ultimately, Carl was the one who called off their wedding in August less than three months before they were set to tie the knot. And despite being the one to initiate the breakup, Kyle insists that Carl is equally devastated the relationship didn't work out.

"I want to emphasize they're both hurting," the Loverboy founder noted. "This is a very unfortunate situation. I think Carl has tried very, very hard to be as respectful as possible. Yes, he's the one who called it off and he's giving her space. He's basically homeless letting her live in the apartment that they both pay for. But he drew the line in the sand."

As for what's next for his pal, Kyle added, "The poor guys trying to figure this all out in real time."

Kyle's update comes one week after Summer House's Danielle Olivera revealed how Lindsay is doing as a newly single woman.

"She's way better, we're on the up and up," Danielle exclusively told E! News Oct. 19. "It was really sad for a bit, she wasn't really leaving her apartment. But I think she's got some trips under her belt now. I just can't wait till we get to the point where she's single Lindsay, where she's out there and we get to go out and paint the town red. She's getting back out there, slowly but surely."
