Bachelor in Paradise has long since closed for the season, but fans are still invested in the relationships of those who got engaged on the beach this Summer. The couple that fans seem to be the most invested in are none other than Demi Burnett and Kristian Haggerty. The first same-sex couple in the history of the Bachelor franchise, Haggerty and Burnett quickly earned the support of fans and cast members alike. But since their engagement, both Burnett and Haggerty have been uncharacteristically quiet about their relationship.
Are Demi Burnett and Kristian Haggerty still together
It’s been well over a month since Haggerty or Burnett posted each other on their respective Instagram pages. And while Burnett confirmed earlier in the month that the pair were still together, fans are thoroughly unconvinced. Each day, the pair are bombarded with Instagram inquiries about if they broke up and if so, why. Some fans went so far as to accuse the couple of faking their relationship for a stunt to gain publicity.
Burnett addresses split rumors
Rumors of the alleged split reached Burnett’s ears and she was quick to shut them down. She maintained that Haggerty was visiting family in Florida, but the pair were still very much together. “Every relationship is different and it’s like — I mean in the most respectful way — it’s nobody’s business how our relationship works. We both have so much going on right now. She’s in Florida, I’m in New York but we do spend time together. Just because we don’t broadcast it doesn’t mean that we’re not together,” the 24-year-old told Us Weekly.
The couple was enjoying being engaged
Burnett continued on to share that she and Haggerty were content with taking things at their own pace. “If you just jump into it and just rush everything, for me personally, that’s not how I could have a successful relationship. I have to definitely take it at a steady pace. We’re definitely just dating right now. There’s so much going on for both of us that it’s like, ‘Oh, planning a wedding right now just sounds so intense.’ So we’re definitely taking it slow and just enjoying our time together. We’re not too far apart. I think it’s important to kind of have our space just so, you know, we can develop a normal, very solid, steady relationship,” the Bachelor in Paradise alum stated.
Kristian Haggerty’s sister, Caitlin, writes a shady Instagram comment
But, it looks like their might be trouble in paradise. Just yesterday, Burnett took to her Instagram page to post a fairly revealing bikini picture. “Sorry, dad…… #thirsttrap,” the reality TV star wrote good-naturedly. Soon thereafter, Haggerty’s sister, Caitlin Haggerty, responded with a shady comment. “Not desperate at all…,” Caitlin Haggerty wrote.
Breakup rumors intensify
Of course, there’s a small possibility that Caitlin Haggerty was joking, but since the comment has since been deleted, fans are thoroughly convinced that she was serious. In fact, the comment has caused fans to believe that Haggerty and Burnett are done for good. “So their relationship is clearly over,” one fan commented. “They broke up,” another said assuredly. “Clearly the engagement is off,” another chimed in. Of course, we’ll have to wait for confirmation from Haggerty and/or Burnett to hear if they’ve really called it quits, but if nothing else, there seems to be trouble in paradise.
