On Dec. 31, Weber posted a lengthy Instagram and revealed he and Flanagan broke up, writing:

“Love is a funny thing. It can make you you feel on top of the world and it can make you feel a pain you wish didn’t exist. I’m here to share that Kelley and I have decided to go our separate ways. While our relationship was filled with countless beautiful memories, our relationship simply didn’t work out in the end. Kelley is someone I will always have a special love for. Someone I have learned more from than she will ever understand. Someone I am so thankful came into my life and someone who I will always wish all of life’s greatest blessings on. These moments in life always hurt, but in my opinion that shows you it was worth the time you spent together. Thank you Kelley.”

Who ended the relationship?

After Weber announced his breakup with Flanagan, fans of The Bachelor began speculating about who ended the relationship.

“Everything about this makes me think she ended it, but he pushed her to it, to where she had no choice. He likely wanted out, but didnt want to be the bad guy. So now he’s quickly tidying it up so the world knows hes single and so he can start dating again sooner,” a fan speculated on Reddit.

As fans theorized about what happened, E! News reported that a source revealed Weber is the one who ended the relationship.

The report reads:

“‘Peter ultimately was the one who ended it with Kelley, but she 100 percent agreed that they needed time apart,’ a source tells E! News exclusively. ‘They had been fighting a lot, and the move was very stressful and put a lot of pressure on them.'”

The source also told E! News that Flanagan and Weber chose to spend the holidays apart before ultimately breaking up.
