When did Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen break up?

After The Bachelorette finale, Kufrin and Yrigoyen moved to Carlsbad, California, where they engaged.

In August 2020, the couple called it quits after two years together.

At the time, a source told E! News that their engagement was also called off.

The insider said: “Becca is still very upset with Garrett’s comments and the controversy surrounding it.

“Their lifestyles don’t mesh anymore. Garrett wants different things, and they came to a realization that they aren’t compatible anymore.”

The news of their split came after Yrigoyen made controversial comments on social media about cops amid the Black Lives Matter protests.

Kufrin spoke up for her support for the BLM movement, while Yrigoyen voiced his appreciation for the “thin blue line.”

According to the informant, the pair were already “living separately.”

The source explained: “Garrett is doing a backpacking trip in the wilderness with his buddies and is taking time for himself. They are trying to keep it low-key because they are still working things out, but the relationship is definitely done.”

In a New Year’s Day Instagram post, Kufrin shared about having her heart broken after her split with Yrigoyen.

“2020. Man, you gave me a run for my money,” she began her post on January 1, 2021.

“You have challenged me in ways I never thought possible. You changed the trajectory of my life, you took several people I loved away, & you pushed me to the point where I almost broke.

“But I didn’t. And after all the hell that’s taken place within 365 days, all I have to say is thank you.”

She continued: “Thank you for breaking my heart & allowing me to put the pieces back together in the most weird, but customized way,” seemingly referencing her and Garrett’s split.

“… You rocked me, but ya couldn’t fully knock me.”

Is Becca Kufrin a contestant on the season Bachelor in Paradise?

In July, The Sun exclusively reported that Kufrin has a relationship with Thomas Jacobs – the villain from Katie Thurston’s Bachelorette season – in the new Bachelor in Paradise season.

A source explained: “She was involved in a bit of a love triangle for a minute but chose Thomas. 

“She didn’t fully know how Thomas would be portrayed on the show, so she didn’t realize he was the cause of so much drama.”

However, despite doing her best to find love, the couple “don’t end up together” and “both leave the show single.”

“The producers will emphasize their romance a lot, too, since she just went through a really public breakup. And this is Becca’s first time really putting herself out there since the split. She’s still a Bachelor Nation staple.

“People will root for her even though there will be backlash to choosing Thomas,” the informant added.  

Thomas was sent home by Thurston after he was accused of “using” her in his bid to become the next Bachelor.

The Washington native fired off at his last rose ceremony: “Thomas, you told me things I wanted to hear, but what I learned about you tonight is you’re selfish, unkind, and a liar.”

“Your Bachelor audition ends tonight, so get out.”

Bachelor in Paradise airs Mondays at 8pm on ABC.
