On May 18, US Weekly reported that The Bachelor stars Robert Graham and Becca Tilley had split up.
Tilley, 28, and Graham, 33, started dating towards the end of last year. In December, Tilley spoke to 102.7 KIIS FM about the friendship-turned-romance, saying, “It’s fun. We’ve been friends for a long time and it was just a natural progression, and he’s just amazing and been patient with me… I need someone that’s patient and willing to deal with me, and he’s been that way. So it’s been fun, it’s been an easy transition.”
Last month, Tilley was photographed with MLB star Cody Bellinger at Clayton Kershaw’s 5th annual Ping Pong 4 Purpose. Fans immediately speculated the two were an item, but Tilley was quick to tell media outlets that wasn’t the case. Speaking to US Weekly, Becca said, “I’m not looking right now. I’m single and happy about it.”
Speaking to US Weekly, earlier this year, Graham corroborated Tilley’s sentiments. Reality TV World reports him as saying, “I love Becca’s smile. I love her personality,” Graham had previously gushed to the magazine. “Her family’s actually pretty incredible. I like her family a lot. She’s just a genuine person, which is pretty rare.”
Becca and Robert called it quits just days after Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell announced their break up. Higgins and Bushnell say that they knew the right decision was made when it came to ending their relationship. Speaking to a podcast, Higgins said, “Just to be as politically correct as possible but to also be as truthful as possible, Lauren will always be one of my best friends… It’s tough. It’s hard to say goodbye to somebody that you spent so much time with and it’s hard to say goodbye to somebody that you really did believe was the one for you.” People reports Higgins as saying that towards the end of their relationship, “there was no real saving or redemption to be done.”
