‘The Bachelorette’: Fans Are Positive Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen Split Because of This Clue on Instagram

Fans are even more certain now that Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen have called it quits. On Instagram, Yrigoyen removed an Instagram Highlight dedicated to Kufrin called “Becca Spills.” While Kufrin and Yrigoyen have not publicly told fans they broke up, fans of The Bachelorette took the deleted Instagram Highlight as another sign the relationship is over.

Fans have suspected a breakup for weeks

For the past several weeks, breakup rumors about The Bachelorette couple have run rampant. Suspicions of a breakup began in June 2020 when Yrigoyen published an Instagram post supporting law enforcement amid the Black Lives Matter protests.

In a Bachelor Happy Hour podcast on June 16, Kufrin told listeners that she did not know the status of her relationship following Yrigoyen’s 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,” she said on the podcast. “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.”

This entire week has been the most difficult, & quite frankly I’m anxious for the assortment of responses that will be sent about today’s BHH podcast. Ultimately I have to look beyond myself & my feelings because what we cover in it is so much bigger & important than me. So with that preface, I’m going to take a moment to give some thoughts (unfortunately I can’t say them all in 1 post, but I hope my future actions speak louder than any words I can say). Throughout the episode, Rachel & I talk about what has been taking place across our country, the Black Lives Matter Movement, underlying issues of white privilege, diversity & changes that can take place within systems like the Bachelor Franchise. This conversation was the hardest, most uncomfortable, but important ones that we’ve had. I value my friendship with Rachel. I also value my partnership with Garrett. So this is really effing hard. As it should be. I will be the first to admit that listening to this back, I came up short. Very short. I listen to this & wish I had said more, wish I could have expressed myself better, wish I could have given so much more than I did. I think to myself “I didn’t ask the right questions,” “I threw out the incorrect phrases,” “I didn’t defend my fiancé,” “why couldn’t I back up my thought process better?” The list goes on & on. So where do I go from here? I can’t re-record this episode. I can’t go back & change my words (or lack there of). I can only try to move forward with what I believe is right, how to accept, be patient, & show care to others – especially for those who are hurting most right now. It that starts with a heart change (as Rachel so eloquently put it at the end – so I hope you’ve all listened through.) As an individual, I have the ability to use my voice, to use my platform, to have uncomfortable conversations during time-changing moments like this because it matters. It’s important. Each day brings on a brand new challenge, conversation, & new lesson. I welcome them & I hope you do too. If I’ve learned anything throughout these past 2 years, it’s that we have the beautiful capability to be better than the day before, so that’s what I’m trying my damndest at

Garrett Yrigoyen deleted videos of Becca Kufrin on Instagram

On Aug. 6, fans of The Bachelorette noticed that Yrigoyen deleted the “Becca Spills” Instagram Highlight. With the Highlight, Yrigoyen had saved videos of Kufrin spilling things from his Instagram stories to his main profile.

“I’m glad he took that Becca Spills video down. It felt like mean mockery to me. It also gave me a vibe that he was kind of controlling her in a way… I’m sad for her that she spent two years of her life with him but I hope it helps her find a better, like-minded man that really loves who she is…,” one Reddit user wrote.

Another Reddit user wrote, “This coupled with his IG comment to someone asking if they want his new address… it’s only a matter of time.”

It was reported Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen broke up

Just a few hours after fans noticed Yrigoyen deleted the “Becca Spills” highlight, E! News reported that the couple broke up.

A source reportedly told E! News:

“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.

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, Kufrin commented on an Instagram post about the article and called out the 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.

Because Kufrin did not deny the breakup, fans interpreted her comment as anger over the source revealing details of her personal life.

One Reddit user wrote, “I think the comment just makes it sound like she thinks she knows who leaked the news, and she’s annoyed because that’s not how she planned to announce it.”

Other fans have interpreted that Yrigoyen or someone close to him is the source in question.

“I took it as ‘lol at Garrett going by source.’ If they were together she would’ve denied this article. She didn’t. It was just a sh*t move for Garrett to leak it this way. But whatever. When you don’t make the first move they will and it’ll hurt more,” wrote a Reddit user.
