The Bachelorette alum opened up about her “grief” two days after announcing that she and the banker had called it quits after four years. As someone who has always been open about her relationship on social media, Kaitlyn shared that she’s been quietly struggling with how much of her heartbreak she should share with fans.
“I’m going through a breakup with someone I was engaged to,” she explained to marriage and family therapist Jenny Wise Black on the Aug. 8 episode of her Off the Vine podcast. “Now, we both are public figures, we both came from the same show. We have all these followers who we’ve let in, and we’ve invited them into our lives and our relationship and our home and what we’re doing—morning, afternoon, night. It’s become part of, like, business.”
While the 38-year-old loves “to entertain” her followers, she said it’s “gotten to this point where something like going through a breakup—it’s a loss, it’s grief, you’re going through the thought of losing somebody, all of these big emotions—and now these people are on the other end of this phone expecting you to share it with them.”
