Looks like he crossed a line.
Engaged season 14 “Bachelorette” stars Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen have split, according to E! News.
E! reports that Yrigoyen’s support for the pro-police “Thin Blue Line” and “Blue Lives Matter” movements — expressed in mid-June via Instagram amid the nationwide uproar over the police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor — caused an irrevocable rift between the former lovebirds. It may not come as a surprise to keen-eyed fans of the couple, who had not posted anything to social media together for months.
“Becca is still very upset with Garett’s comments and the controversy surrounding it,” a source told the network, “Their lifestyles don’t mesh anymore. Garrett wants different things and they came to a realization that they aren’t compatible anymore.”
Kufrin, 30, and Yrigoyen, 31, moved to Carlsbad, Calif., last year, but are reportedly now living apart, though that may be due to the fact that “Garrett is doing a backpacking trip in the wilderness with his buddies and is taking time for himself,” per E!.
“They are trying to keep it low-key because they are still working things out,” the source adds, “but the relationship is definitely done.”
Around the time of Yrigoyen’s Instagram controversy, Kufrin admitted on her fellow “Bachelor” franchise star Rachel Lindsay’s podcast, “Bachelor Happy Hour,” that “for those who are curious about my relationship with Garrett at this point, all I can say right now is I don’t know.”
“It’s something that we are trying to work through and discuss and do work on at home at this time,” she continued, “and that’s where the work will remain.”
Lindsay, 35, minced far fewer words in late July on Danny Pellegrino’s “Everything Iconic” podcast, saying of Yrigoyen, “I think he’s a piece of s–t, and I have said to her, ‘I will not f–k with him.’”
“This isn’t the first time he’s had problematic behavior,” Lindsay continued. “When he was on the season, he had a history of liking things that were racist, sexist, homophobic, calling the Parkland students child actors, it was a lot, so this is who this man is.”
Lindsay was alluding to another Instagram controversy involving Yrigoyen — this one from 2018 — when he was caught allegedly liking posts that mocked transgender individuals, immigrants and survivors of the Parkland school shooting.
