"It is with mutual love and respect that we have decided to go our separate ways," Katie, wrote. "We are so grateful for the moments we shared together and the entire journey that has unfolded this year, but we ultimately have concluded that we are not compatible as life partners, and it is the most caring choice for both of us to move forward independently."
She concluded: "We ask for kindness and privacy as we both navigate this transition. Both of us will forever want the best for one another and ask you to please support us in our decision."
Blake posted the same thing on his Instagram account.
A source later told The Sun there were several factor that led to the big break-up, including distance and Katie's own attitude.
"The star’s “outbursts became too much for him to handle,” the source exclusively told The Sun. “Katie is much quicker to call little things out whereas Blake just lets things slide."
The source concluded: “At the same time, Katie felt she was putting more into the relationship than he was.
“So it's a number of issues and not one person's fault.
“They were just clearly not compatible and rushed into things."
KATIE AND JOHN
Less than a month later, Katie started dating John.
The two went public with their romance after Katie, on Instagram, dedicated a Taylor Swift song to different contestants from her season on The Bachelorette.
For John, she dedicated Begin Again, and shared a video of her flying in a plane he was piloting.
In January, John gushed as he wished his now ex a happy birthday online.
