The Bachelorette’s Darvid Garayeli, 27, and Brooke Blurton, 26, went through a very public break-up earlier this month. 

And while there’s been plenty of speculation as to what really caused their split, a friend of Darvid reportedly told The Wash on Friday how their romance ‘started falling apart’ after the honeymoon period fizzled out. 

In a series of text messages, the friend claimed that ‘once the hype from the show started fading and reality set in, Brooke realised she’d made a huge mistake’.

The anonymous friend revealed the couple enjoyed four months of long distance after the show and ‘were really happy and head over heels’, however ‘everything started falling apart’ when they were finally together.

According to the insider, Brooke reportedly told Darvid when he reunited with her in Melbourne, ‘Great you’re here, I need to focus on my work, you do you’.

Darvid was said to be blindsided by her ‘pushing him away’, and by Christmas, Brooke reportedly ended things as she wanted space.

When approached for comment by The Wash, Darvid confirmed the friend’s recollection of events. However Brooke declined to comment and said the texts provide ‘inaccurate information’.  

Earlier this month, Brooke provided some insight on their split in an Instagram post, describing their romance as like living in a ‘pressure cooker’.

Brooke and Darvid announced their split earlier this month. 

‘As you’re all aware, Darvid and I have gone our separate ways. Darvid on the 2/1 came online and publicly announced that we had parted ways,’ she began.

‘In an ideal world I would have preferred to have a mutual agreement and/ or had a say in when/how we express that to the public but instead woke to that news which obviously kinda shocked me. Which is where you saw my reaction.’

‘But Darvid had every right to make that decision, his platform, he can choose that for himself. I’d say it’s better to rip the band aid off.’

Brooke went on to say it was her choice to end their relationship.

‘My reasons for that are completely valid to me. I had been unhappy for a bit and it wasn’t just solely because of the relationship. I have a lot of respect for Darvid and what he gave up for me to be IN the relationship but it seems that we both lost ourselves along the way,’ she continued.

‘We had a very real love in a very unreal situation but we equally had A LOT of pressure on us too. Which I felt I carried everyday. At the start of the show, I was the best version of myself and when the show ended and my sister died. I became my worst and my saddest.’

Brooke said she and Darvid ‘ended up being two different people who wanted different things and that’s just that’.

‘No infidelity, no hate, just a pressure cooker. We’re as amicable as you can be during a healing process. I still love him dearly and have no regrets choosing him. I just wish the world was a little bit more gentle on us in the time we had.’

She added: ‘I wish him all the very best and with support I’d really just like to move past this and hope that we become the best versions of ourselves this year.’
