Inside Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray’s Split: What Really Happened — Exclusive
Another Bachelorette couple bites the dust, as Andi Dorfman and Josh Murray just announced (via reps to TMZ) that their Season 10 courtship is dunzo as of January 8. Just three days ago, the two walked the red carpet at the Bachelor Season 19 premiere, stopping for a talk with Chris Harrison to gush about their great relationship. And while the pair playfully needled one another, it’s shocking that it’s come to this — though not everyone is surprised.
One source close to the couple tells Wetpaint Entertainment exclusively that the split has been coming for some time, stating that Andi is a “complete control freak” and that Josh’s family “hated her." Though the family never spoke about it publicly, rumors of a rift between Andi and Josh’s clan did circulate around October.
The MurrDorf insider adds that Andi’s Season 10 runner-up Nick Viall was supposed to be part of the massive rose-colored alumni cloud that permeated the red carpet on Monday. However, once Andi got wind of the invite, she told producers she wouldn’t show if he was there. As fans may recall, their last run-in was on the Season 10 Finale when it was revealed that Nick had sought Andi out several times since filming to try to speak to her and get another chance. “If you weren’t in love with me, why did you make love with me?” he famously asked the taken aback Bachelorette.
One attendee of Monday night’s Bachelor 2015 festivities is a bit more surprised about their split. Says the source, “They seemed good most of the night! He had his arm around her almost the whole time and they smiled and talked to everyone.” However, at the end of the day, things didn’t seem quite so rosy. “I accidentally bumped into him and he seemed annoyed and pissed off. Once filming wrapped, he went off with the guys and she went with her girls.”
Andi and Josh’s joint statement read, “After several months of being engaged and working on our relationship, we have decided that it’s best for both of us to go our separate ways.” Sounds like they got a head start.
