This isn’t the first time the Canadian has spoken candidly about her split. She admitted on her podcast, Off the Vine, a few weeks after their breakup, “It’s been a really hard few months now. I really did think we’d get through it.”
She was sure to add, “I want to reiterate to people, what you saw on social media was real and what we had was real love. But when it comes to roadblocks, and those fundamental values and again, getting through things together, I just don’t think we were on the same page — and it’s painful to admit that.”
They initially announced their split in a joint statement that began: “After three incredible years, we have decided to go our separate ways. This difficult decision comes after thoughtful, respectful consideration. Even though we are parting as a couple, we’re very much committed to remaining friends.”
However, they admitted that they wanted different things in life. “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,” the statement continued.
It concluded, “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.”
That’s not to say he puts his lady love on a pedastal. When asked if he calls her out on “bulls–t,” Kaitlyn explained his one pet peeve. “He hates when I clap back at trolls … I love a good clapback. I live for it,” she said. Fair enough!
