Despite the recent rumors that Bachelor Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell have split up, the duo is still very much together.
The controversial Bachelor reality star was photographed talking to a woman in Atlantic City while Ferrell was nowhere in sight. So, as expected, this swirled up a slew of breakup reports, which stated the happy couple was no longer an item.
However, several sources confirmed to People magazine that Galavis and Ferrell are still going strong.
“They haven’t split,” a pal said. “Like every couple, they may have their ups and downs, but they’re still very happy and moving in the right direction.”
In fact, just this Sunday, Galavis posted a photo of a lake on Twitter and tagged Ferrell saying, “Wish BOTH of us were sitting HERE,” to which she replied, “Me too.”
The couple is also expected to attend the Hearts of Reality charity event in Florida at the end of the month. Galavis and Ferrell are set to sign autographs for the event that will raise money for Give Kids the World and the two are still on the guest roster for that.
Ever since Galavis gave the final rose to Ferrell while refusing to propose, Bachelor nation fans were not happy at the turn of events and guessed the couple would not last.
“I don’t know why people want them to split up so badly,” Galavis’ friend said. “Some people just can’t be happy for them. They’ve weathered a lot, and they’re really in this for good.”
In addition to not wanting to propose on the Bachelor finale, Galavis also declined to tell Ferrell he loved her during ABC’s After the Final Rose special. This incited more negativity and added doubt about the already-questionable relationship.
