Colton Underwood and Aly Raisman seemed to have a hard time with their long distance relationship. In fact, in his book “The First Time,” Underwood revealed that he used most of his money to travel to see Raisman — but he admitted that he was actually broke. “I was perfectly happy in this relationship. It was satisfying and serious. But I was keeping a secret from Aly. Though I looked like I belonged in this glitzy, glamorous world, I was broke,” he shared, according to The Sun.
Despite trying to work things out, Underwood and Raisman’s relationship came to an end in April 2017 when Raisman ended things over FaceTime, according to Showbiz Cheatsheet. In an interview on “The Lady Gang” podcast in January 2019, Underwood called Raisman his “first love,” and admitted that their split was the “worst heartbreak” that he had experienced (via Us Weekly). “Aly said she felt overwhelmed, confused and in need of a break. Afterward, I sat in my car and cried. I was numb for days. I reached out to Aly several times without getting any response to my calls or texts,” he shared. That recollection seemed very different from what Underwood said of his split from Raisman in an interview with the Peoria Journal-Star six months after their 2017 split. “We’re still good friends and talk, but all that travel had been a nightmare. It ended fine. We’re in a good place,” he told the outlet.
