That was fast….
The romance between Bachelor Matt Agnew and Chelsie McLeod is officially over.
Both became an item when the show concluded in late September (filmed many weeks earlier).
Matt, 27, and Chelsie, 28, posted separate statements at Instagram to announce the news.
Matt posted: “These past six months since filming have been a very unique experience. Chels and I have made some beautiful memories together that I’ll always cherish, and I wish her nothing but the absolute best. However, it’s with a heavy heart that I write this.
“For Chels and me, our relationship hasn’t translated from filming to the real, every day world as we had hoped. Chels is a very special woman and I want her to find the happiness she deserves. For those who may wonder if there’s someone else for me right now, there absolutely is not. It’s no one’s fault, it’s just life.”
Chelsie wrote, “Thank you so much to everyone for your support and kind words over what was an incredibly exciting, rewarding, challenging, and emotional journey. Your words have not gone unnoticed. Matt showed me what it was like to be respected in a relationship and I am so thankful for that.
“However, it saddens me to say that we are no longer together. I wish him nothing but the best. I’m sorry to those that were invested in our relationship. Please remember to be kind online as you don’t know what is going on behind the screen. All my love ❤️”
Runner-up also said, “I’ve been tagged in a lot of comments this morning on post’s about Matt and Chelsie’s relationship ending. Some of you are saying ‘it’s my shot’, others are saying that he’s done a Blake Garvey. None of this is fair on Chelsie, Matt or me.
“My contact with Matt ended when I walked away from him at finale, and I am good friends with Chelsie and love her very much.
“These comments are unnecessary and aren’t helping anyone. I have nothing to do with their relationship or their breakup, so I’d appreciate it if I was left out of the conversation. Matt and Chels are great humans and I want them to be happy.”
