“The Bachelor” of last season Ben Flajnik and his model girlfriend Courtney Robertson have split! So shocking, right?
There were already rumors floating around that Ben had cheated on Courtney, so we imagined it would only be a matter of time before they went their separate ways. What do you think?
Just eleven months after their engagement in Switzerland for the season 16 finale of “The Bachelor”, Ben and Courtney have called it quits. “Us Weekly” reports:
Proposing to controversial Bachelor contestant Robertson with a 3-carat Neil Lane sparkler in November 2011, Flajnik was caught cheating on his fiancee four months later. The exclusive photos of his trysts — three in one weekend! — were later published in Us Weekly. (During March’s After the Final Rose special, Flajnik swore on his father’s grave that he was just kissing “old friends.”)
Post-engagement, the couple assured viewers they intended to enjoy a long courtship away from reality TV cameras before walking down the aisle. “We kind of looked back at some of the other Bachelor relationships that didn’t work out and the reason for that is you have so much pressure to move in together and set a date and all this kind of stuff . . . Let’s figure out who we are together before we do any of that and take the pressure off,” mused Flajnik.
