Just five months after the former National Football League star proposed to "The Bachelorette" in a whirlwind romance that "blew up" the franchise, a source exclusively told us the former couple are "done" and broke up "last week". "We appreciate the love and support we've received from so many people, but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time", he wrote.

The Bachelorette contestant added, "We strongly believe in leading with love and always remaining true to oneself - something our families have taught and instilled in us throughout our lives".

Crawley, 39, posted a photo of her holding her ailing mother's hand on Instagram, and wrote, "She has good days and bad, Just like we all do".

From the very beginning, Clare and Dale's romance was met with skepticism. After she said "yes", Tayshia Adams took her place as the Season 16 Bachelorette where she met and got engaged to Zac Clark.

Clare has not publicly addressed the breakup.

Moss, an aspiring host, recently revealed that he "turned down" appearing on "The Bachelorette" several times, but said "the only reason I committed to it was because Clare was announced [as the] Bachelorette at that time".

Luckily, he was also interested in taking things to the next level in the relationship. Two weeks later, she quit being the Bachelorette to give Dale her full attention. After all, her season was set to begin production in March, with the cast members already confirmed.

Of course, this was said hours before Dale's statement, so we think it's safe to say he and Clare are finished trying to work through their issues.

Interestingly enough, she posted an intimate image with her now-former fiancé to her Instagram on January 9. [ABC] Clare's first impression came up when in Dale, after she declared on the night one that he would be her "husband".

But, unfortunately, it wasn't meant to be and two months after getting engaged, they broke up. Clare has had some tough luck when it comes to love. On social media, fans speculated about why Moss and Crawley made a decision to end their relationship, and fans of The Bachelorette are convinced that Moss is the one who broke up with Crawley. Fans knew her from previous seasons of The Bachelor and Bachelor in Paradise where she failed to find a love match.
