"I was made aware of a "mutual" statement at the same time you all were, so I've needed some time to really digest this", Clare wrote when she took to Instagram, adding that she was "crushed" by the split.
"Like, this time it sucks", he continued. Crawley has not yet commented on the situation publicly. And I love Clare and I respect Clare quite a bit, although that's how I feel... and it's gonna take a while. Clare Crawley was wrong and now she is speaking out about it all.
After Moss spoke with Crawley on the first night of The Bachelorette, Crawley said, "I knew it". At the time, many fans criticized Crawley for not going through the "whole process" to give equal opportunity to get to know each man on the show. "I put my heart and soul into it each and every day".
He continued: "While this is going to be hard, what you'll see from me is trying to practice what I preach and continue to put my best foot forward each and every day. Everything else is in God's hands". "What was going on behind-the-scenes that Clare had no idea was going on that was completely manipulated and produced?" she revealed on the Here for the Right Reasons podcast.
She finished up by saying, "Our relationship was not flawless, but I can say that I was genuinely invested with all of my heart".
"Representing myself, my expectations with this relationship have consistently been clear, so in all actuality, I am squashed", she conceded.
E! also reports that "multiple insiders familiar with their relationship" describe Moss as a "fame-seeker", which was exactly what Crawley didn't want when she signed on as The Bachelorette. "2020 was one hell of a year, with COVID, battling severe anxiety post-show, balancing a public new relationship, all while slowly losing my mother". I have been looking forward to the light at the end of the tunnel.
A source previously told PEOPLE that Moss was not ready to take the next steps in the relationship. The outreach and the messages have been really awesome and it helps a lot now during this time and I will never forget it. Dale's public video comes at the same time a source told us he "regrets" proposing to Clare less than two weeks after they first met. "Dale felt a lot of pressure to get engaged to Clare", the source said EXCLUSIVELY HollywoodLife.
Clare starred in season 16 of The Bachelorette, but quit by the fourth episode, as she quickly fell for Dale and accepted his proposal.
