When fans think the problems for Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen began

Breakup rumors have followed Kufrin and Yrigoyen for the past several weeks. Many suspected problems in the relationship arose with Yrigoyen’s “Thin Blue Line” Instagram post in support of law enforcement amid the Black Lives Matter movement.

In a Bachelor Happy Hour podcast on June 16, Kufrin admitted that she did not know where things stood with her fiancé following his post.

“I want to say to our listeners out there — because I’m sure many will hear this back and wonder and ask and have opinions — for those who are curious about my relationship with Garrett at this point, all I can say right now is I don’t know,” Kufrin said. “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 can give you at this point.”

I’ve been pretty tore up the past week about everything going on. I’ve listened, learned, helped, supported, and grown. With so many friends and family in law enforcement I couldn’t sit back and not support them and the hundreds of thousands of men and women of all races that represent this Thin Blue Line as well. It’s important for me to recognize the ones who stand in the gap and put their lives on the line each and every single day for humans of different race and ethnicity, including those who hate them. The Thin Blue Line represents each officer protecting protestors, properties, and businesses while being threatened, attacked, shot, shot at, hit with vehicles, and other forms of brutality. There have been over 300 injured, shot, or killed in just one week. They are suffering the consequences over an act they didn’t commit. They continue to put in overtime away from their families, stay silent while being threatened, hated, and assaulted. We can’t judge an entire group of people by the actions of a few. We can’t judge the peaceful protesters by the actions of the few violent protesters, and we sure can’t judge all cops by the actions of a few bad ones. Remember when they put on the badge they’re still humans, with raw emotion, the more brutality they face the more on edge they become, they make mistakes, they have compassion, and no matter how terrible they are treated or whatever negative is said to them, they still show up for us when we need them! Remember these men and women who hold this Thin Blue Line; strangers, friends, family, neighbors, or your enemies. They will always be out there protecting us, no matter what! #thinblueline #antiracism #antibrutality

A source revealed Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen broke up

In the report done by E! News, a source close to Kufrin and Yrigoyen allegedly leaked that the two broke up because of Yrigoyen’s post and their differing views.

“‘Becca is still very upset with Garrett’s comments and the controversy surrounding it… Their lifestyles don’t mesh anymore. Garrett wants different things and they came to a realization that they aren’t compatible anymore,'” the source told E! News.

The source continued, “‘Garrett is doing a backpacking trip in the wilderness with his buddies and is taking time for himself. They are trying to keep it low-key because they are still working things out, but the relationship is definitely done.'”

After E! News published the report on Instagram, Kufrin commented on the post and called out the publication and source.

“Lol interesting ‘source.’ I mean if nothing else, the least you could do is spell the names correctly and consistently in your article,” she wrote.

Fans analyzed her comment

On Reddit, fans of The Bachelorette discussed the article leak and Kufrin’s subsequent comment. Most interpreted Kufrin’s comment as anger over the leak, not a denial that she and Yrigoyen broke up.

“I think the ‘interesting source’ line is shade at Garrett or one of his circle of friends/family. Becca probably upset that E! decided to break the news (and disrespect Becca’s privacy) instead of she and Garrett announcing it together,” wrote a Reddit user.

“Considering neither one has made a post acknowledging today was the anniversary of their finale airing and they haven’t been together physically for like a month (? ) now , I 100% believe theyre done. I think Becca is upset that she didn’t get to make the announcement first,” another Reddit user agreed.

Fans also voiced that they feel bad for Kufrin not being able to disclose whatever happened in her relationship on her own timeline.

“This definitely should have been on her terms. I would be pissed if someone leaked it before I could comment myself on the situation,” a Reddit user wrote.
