Becky and Pete From The Bachelorette Have Broken Up
This morning, Bachelorette Becky Miles and her chosen beau Pete Mann revealed they had split up, via Instagram.
“Thank you to everyone for coming on this incredible and crazy journey with Elly and I. We came into this experience wanting a fairy tale ending for the two of us, and while I am thrilled that Elly found her person in Frazer, unfortunately things didn’t work out with Pete and I,” Becky wrote.
“Although I wasn’t lucky enough to find my person this time around, I am grateful for this opportunity and leave with fond memories and no regrets.
“I wish Pete happiness and all the best in his search for love.”
In his own post, Pete wrote, “The Bachelorette was such an amazing experience and one I’ll always remember. I came on this show to follow my heart and find love but unfortunately in the end true love was not meant to be.
“Becky is a wonderful woman and I wish her nothing but happiness in life and love. It is truly what she deserves.”
Becky Miles chose Pete Mann in the Bachelorette finale, despite being wary about whether the cafe owner from Adelaide was ready for another serious relationship.
The couple’s announcement today confirms long-running rumours about their breakup. The Wash noticed that Becky’s Facebook relationship status is currently set to single, and that’s not because she doesn’t update her page — she was “in a relationship” on Facebook in August last year.
A source also told the publication the reason Pete and Becky’s relationship didn’t work is because neither was willing to relocate for the other. “Pete doesn’t ever want to leave Adelaide and Becky never wants to leave Newcastle — it’s as simple as that really.”
Someone close to Pete told the Daily Mail the same story: “She’s very sweet, but the mathematics just didn’t add up.
“Pete was too invested in running his four coffee shops in Adelaide, and Becky wasn’t keen on doing an Irena,” the source added, in reference to Bachelor winner Irena Srbinovska’s decision to move to Perth for Locky Gilbert.
We hope Becky and Pete both find their persons outside of the Bachelorette experience.
