The Bachelor curse strikes again! One month after the premiere of their new reality show, Lauren Bushnell is calling off her engagement to Ben Higgins!
Sources reveal exclusively to Life & Style that the reality star, 28, and his bride-to-be, 26, have officially canceled their wedding — and it was all her idea.
"They had been putting on a front for months, pretending to be happy for the show, and Lauren got sick of it,” the insider says. “She got sick of sitting at home being an ‘almost housewife’ to Ben.”
However, the blonde beauty is not in mourning over her failed engagement.
"Lauren wishes she could have found her happily ever after,” the insider adds, “but she’s thankful she didn’t air a fake wedding to the whole world."
