She’s finally confirmed their split and Becca Kufrin’s quotes about her breakup with Garrett Yrigoyen provide Bachelor Nation fans with some much-needed details. “I don’t think it’s going to come as a shock to anyone, but Garrett and I have decided to end our engagement,” Kufrin revealed through tears during the Sept. 1 episode of Bachelor Happy Hour. "And if you’ve followed me on Instagram for the past couple months, you’ll have noticed I spent a lot of time in Minnesota. I was with family and close friends and he was out on the West Coast doing the same, and we were really just trying to take time and gain some clarity on what was the next best step in our lives, whether that was together or as individuals."
It was that time apart that left them deciding to split for good. “After many conversations, we came to this decision. It wasn’t something that we just arrived at one night. It wasn’t based solely off of one Instagram post or somebody else’s opinions or comments," she explained. "There’s much more to it. To any relationship, there’s a lot of layers, and it’s not for me to divulge details. It’s no one’s business other than what I’m telling you right now.”
The "one Instagram post" Kufrin is referring to is likely the black square with the blue line Yrigoyen posted to his profile on June 4 in defense of cops amid Black Lives Matter protests. Kufrin discussed the controversial post with her co-host Rachel Lindsay during the June 9 episode of Bachelor Happy Hour. “Garrett is my fiancé and I love him and to his core, I believe that he is a good person. What he posted… I don’t align with and I don’t agree with,” Kufrin told Lindsay at the beginning of the episode. “I don’t think he meant it in a malicious way, I do think it was tone deaf and it was the wrong time and message and sentiment. … I’m trying to get him to see the bigger picture.”
A week later, Kufrin returned to the show with a vague update on her relationship status with Yrigoyen. "For those who are curious about my relationship with Garrett at this point, all I can say right now is that I don’t know," Kufrin confessed on the June 16 episode. "I can’t give anything more than that. It’s something that we are trying to work through and discuss and do work on at home at this time and that’s where the work will remain and that’s really the best I can give you at this point."
After having heard her announcement, it seems as though this was the time they were spending apart.
