Months after their engagement, Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton have reportedly split. The reason behind their separation is being blamed on a fight, following which Murray apparently ditched Stanton at the KIIS FM's Jingle Ball 2016 earlier this month.
TMZ claims that the former Bachelor In Paradise stars attended the concert at Staples Center along with a few of their co-stars from the dating reality show. A source close to the 26-year-old aesthetician, reportedly told the website that their fellow Bachelor co-star Ashley Iaconetti brought drinks for the mother of two during their Lake Tahoe trip.
Stanton had previously told her fiancé that she does not drink and her alleged drinking infuriated Murray. The gossip website also claims that sources close to the former pro baseball player are blaming the split on Stanton. The fight between the couple reportedly started after Amanda said something "nasty" to her fiancé, which made him feel disrespected and he left the venue causing the split.
However, ET Online claims that the couple were struggling in their rocky relationship weeks before their alleged split. "Their relationship had been on the rocks for a while. People were surprised they were together for as long as they were," a source told the website, which claims the Bachelor co-stars have broken up multiple times before. Soon after their on-screen engagement, Murray relocated to Shanton's apartment in California from Atlanta, Georgia.
"It's been a tough road. They have broken up a couple times since getting home and have had a rough start to their relationship. Part of it, in the beginning, was the distance, and the other part was added pressures like dating in the 'real world.'"
Rumours about the crack in the fan favourite couple's relationship started doing the rounds after Shanton posted a cryptic tweet that reads: "Never mistake someone's kindness for weakness." However, it appears that despite their split the couple are spending time together along with the aesthetician's daughters Kinsley and Charlie.
"I will always love this precious little angel," Murray captioned an adorable image of him cuddling up with four-year-old Kinsley.
