Bachelor Nation was shocked when Victoria Fuller confirmed she was dating Bachelorette alum Greg Grippo during the Bachelor in Paradise season 8 reunion in November 2022. The relationship reveal came after weeks of cheating rumors since Victoria had just gotten engaged to BIP costar Johnny DePhillipo on the finale two months prior.
Victoria denied cheating on her ex-fiancée and any crossover between the two relationships, but Johnny wasn’t so convinced.
Despite the drama, Victoria and Greg ignored the haters of their relationship and were known to shamelessly flaunt each other on each other’s social media channels — until now. In July 2023, Victoria and Greg sparked split rumors and eagle-eyed fans started to speculate about the clues that seemingly hinted at a breakup.
Did Victoria Fuller and Greg Grippo Break Up?
Victoria and Greg were known to consistently appear on each other’s social media channels, often sharing their date nights and adventures. In July 2023, fans noticed the pair seemed distant because the last time they posted each other was on June 3 during Greg’s birthday celebration.
“Did her and Greg break up? I’m asking because I haven’t seen them together in a while,” one user wrote under the Virginia Beach native’s July 21 Instagram post. Meanwhile, another added, “Damn girl you’re posting a lot. I think Greg sees it and you should just come out with the fact that you guys broke up.”
More than a week after the speculation started, Victoria seemingly responded to the breakup rumors by sharing a photo of Greg in Nashville. Many followers speculated that she posted an old photo of her man, but she appeared to shut down the claims by sharing more photos from their Tennessee outing with the caption, “Weekend Diary.”
In the snaps, the reality TV couple shared spent the weekend together at the 1 Hotel in Nashville. “G got us a little staycation up the street,” she added.
Weeks later, the couple proved that they were still going strong thanks to social media. Victoria and Greg took a gorgeous vacation to Italy and shared selfies via social media during their visit.

Fans quickly speculated that Victoria and Johnny were the ones who ended their relationship. The drama only intensified when comedian Dave Neal revealed that two sources close to the couple claimed Victoria “cheated twice” on Johnny. Later that month, two fans claimed they saw Victoria in Italy with Greg.
Victoria later made it clear that she “never” cheated on Johnny during their short-lived engagement.
“I’m so f–king tired,” she told Bachelor alum Nick Viall during an appearance on his “Viall Files” podcast in December 2022. “If I don’t want to be with somebody because it is a toxic environment, I shouldn’t have to be with that person because the world wants me to. At the end of the day, I broke up with him and I’m so sorry that he’s hurting. But like, I’m hurting too. I should be able to move on, and whether it’s f–king three days or a month, like, I should be able to do that.”
