Friendly exes? Kaitlyn Bristowe revealed some surprising details about her current relationship status with Shawn Booth. Although things are done for good, the reality starlet assured that there’s no saltiness between the two.
“If I ran into him on the street I would say, ‘Hey, how’s it going?’ It’s not like there’s any hate there, but … we don’t talk or anything,” the 33-year-old confessed to Us Weekly on Monday, May 20, while sharing details about her Dew Edit scrunchies.
That’s not to say that the former couple left any loose ends when parting ways. After being asked if there were any “unresolved” issues, the podcast host confirmed, “No, not really.” She noted, “I mean, like I said, we can be civil, but we’re also not talking, so that’s it.”
Kaitlyn and Shawn publicly announced their split in November 2018 after getting engaged on season 11 of The Bachelorette. “After three incredible years, we have decided to go our separate ways. This difficult decision comes after thoughtful, respectful consideration,” the reality duo said in a joint statement at the time.
The statement continued, “Even though we are parting as a couple, we’re very much committed to remaining friends. We have both evolved as people, which is taking us in different directions, but with the hope that we will continue to support each other in new ways. Due to the nature of how we met, our relationship has always been very public, and we have enjoyed sharing it with all of you, but we ask that you respect our decision and our privacy at this time.”
Although that chapter was hard to close, the two have moved on. Kaitlyn is now happily with fellow Bachelor Nation alum Jason Tartick and it doesn’t seem like she’s looking back. “He’s such a positive person and he’s just a happy go lucky, good guy, and it’s just, his energy is amazing to be around,” she raved to Us during Monday’s interview.
“Everybody puts out the highlight reel on social media, so, I mean, we’re a regular relationship. But for the most part, I just, I feel extremely happy and lucky to have found him.” We’re thrilled you found him too, Kaitlyn!
Although Shawn and Kaitlyn are clearly over, we can’t wait to see where life takes her.
