Summer House stars Lindsay Hubbard and Carl Radke shocked fans when they called off their engagement just three months before they were set to wed. While viewers will get to see their split play out during season 8, fans can’t help but wonder what went wrong in their romance.

Why Did ‘Summer House’ Stars Lindsay Hubbard and Carl Radke End Their Engagement?

Lindsay and Carl’s split was revealed on August 31. However, neither Bravo star has publicly addressed the claims about their relationship.

One week after they called it quits, an insider told Us Weekly that the split wasn’t a shock ​for one party involved. “Lindsay was 100 percent blindsided by the engagement being called off, but it was a long time coming for Carl,” the source revealed. “He wasn’t in this relationship emotionally for a while.”

The insider added that “Lindsay is broken up and not in a great place.” They also noted that “she’s surrounded by friends and family” to help her get through the “very rough” time.

People obtained a note Carl addressed to close family and friends on September 11, announcing he and Lindsay officially called off the wedding.

“We are so incredibly sorry to all of our guests for the confusion and lack of communication. We were left trying to figure out how this all exactly happened before we could even have the opportunity to determine the path forward amongst ourselves,” Carl wrote. “There have been a lot of false narratives and misunderstandings that have made this all the more painful but sadly at this time we are not moving forward with the wedding. The fact of the matter is Lindsay is devastated and I’m crushed with how all this transpired. I graciously ask for some patience and grace to heal and recover while we navigate this extremely difficult time.”

The letter concluded, “I’m sorry again this has become such a mess. Thanks for your unconditional love and support during this tough time. Will be in touch with further updates. With love, Carl.”
