The Heartache Is Fresh: Ben Higgins Opens Up On Lauren Bushnell Split

Ben Higgins has finally thrown some light on his split with fiancée Lauren Bushnell. The duo, who became a couple on the show The Bachelor - Season 20, is no more together and ended their relationship by announcing it on May 15. Talking to E! News, Ben said the heartache is fresh and it’s hard to say goodbye to someone whom you love so much.

He said, “Just to be as politically correct as possible and to also be as truthful as possible, Lauren [Bushnell] will always be one of my best friends. It’s [a relationship] where I learned a lot about myself; I think she learned a lot about herself. Obviously, she knows me better than anybody else that has gone through this experience, and really probably anybody else in the world. It’s tough”.

The Bachelor star further explained the reason why the couple chose different ways. He added, “I think mutually Lauren and I saw that life was getting more difficult. I would say the joy that we felt toward our relationship at the beginning was—for some reason—slipping away, and we were both working very hard to bring that joy back. And it just never seemed to get there. So it was a long time coming but it wasn’t necessarily like we dragged it out”.
