The Bachelorette’s Bryan Abasolo Breaks His Silence on Divorce from Rachel Lindsay: What Really Happened?

Former Bachelorette The details of Bryan Abasolo’s divorce from Rachel Lindsay are being revealed.

In a statement posted on Instagram on Tuesday, January 2, Abasolo, 43, said, “If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I don’t like to put my personal affairs on social media and like to keep a safe space for our family.” Many of you are aware of me as a chiropractor, but my proudest role to date is that of a spouse. Rachel and I have decided to part ways and start again after more than 4 years of marriage.

Abasolo clarified that the decision to divorce did not happen easily because his parents “have been married forever” and he saw himself as a “family man.”

He went on, “Loving yourself and your partner sometimes means you have to let go.” “I wanted to get the straight scoop from the horse before the blogs start inventing their own narratives.”

In closing, he requested solitude as he and his family “figure out” what to do next.

Us Weekly verified on Tuesday that Abasolo filed for divorce from Lindsay, 38, citing their separation date as Sunday, December 31. Two years after falling in love during season 13 of The Bachelorette in 2017, the couple tied the knot in March of 2019.

Lindsay made an appearance on Nick Viall’s podcast, “The Viall Files,” in December 2023, one month before to the couple’s breakup being public knowledge. Lindsay acknowledged that she and Abasolo have “completely different lives” throughout their conversation.

“I just felt like, ‘I want to keep this for ourselves.’ Marriage has its ups and downs, but we never disclose our feelings to each other, so you never know when we’re happy or unhappy,” she remarked at the time. “When I want to share something, I share it because I kind of want to keep it that way.”

Lindsay later defended their choice to keep their relationship out of the public eye when Abasolo and Lindsay did likewise in more recent years.

In July 2022, she posted an Instagram photo, saying, “The most common questions I get on social media are: where is Bryan and when are you having babies?” “Now, I’ve answered the follow-up query on an earlier #honestlyrach, but now it’s time I answered: Bryan, where are you? To be honest, you don’t need to bother about Bryan. I am half-joking, actually.

Lindsay and Abasolo felt the need to ensure they had “control” over the future of their romance, even though they understood why people wanted to know how they were doing after their reality TV experience.

“I recall that when we first started dating, we were worried about how we came across to the public and constantly felt under pressure to post on social media because that’s what the public desired,” she said in closing. It was awful, and we were gradually transforming into the RnB story that that world had constructed for us, moving away from the essence of Bryan and Rachel. We agreed not to do that ever again. Thus, don’t panic if days, weeks, or even months pass without Rachel and Bryan posting on social media. Here, we’re doing well, cherishing our love in secret and constructing a future together, san[s] social media.
