Taking to her Instagram page, Adams posted a picture of herself with Jones and officially announced that they had decided to go their separate ways.

“The reality was, we were living on opposite coasts, and working insane schedules that made it impossible to see each other and build a life with each other. We truly did the best we could, but at this time have decided that what is best for the both of us is to go our separate ways. We are the best of friends and will continue to remain in each other’s life because regardless of the situation, we make each other happy,” Adams shared about her relationship with Jones in the caption of her photo.

Almost immediately, Adams began receiving support and well wishes from fans. Amongst them, were her fellow Bachelor in Paradise cast members and friends eager to show their love for the former couple. Katie Morton and Clay Harbor both gave simple yet sweet responses in the form of emojis. But, those cast members closer to Adams penned more heartfelt messages.

“I just want to say I am so proud of the woman you are. You are such a light and it’s not easy sharing your love story with the world, but know you are so so loved and have so much ahead. Thank you for being the strong, genuine influence you have been throughout this whole crazy experience. What matters most is you both are doing what’s best for each of you. Life is so short and you will get through this and come out of all this that much stronger. I love you Tayshia! You got this,” Kristian Haggerty penned to her friend.

You’ll always cherish your memories (#JohnPromJones), and I’m sure you’ll make new ones, even though they may look different, It was a summer to remember! Love you, T money,” Adams’ fellow castmate and best friend, Nicole Lopez-Alvar wrote. Breakups are always hard, but at least Adams and Jones have a solid support system to help them through it.
