Vienna Girardi’s relationship with Bachelor Jake Pavelka didn’t work out in 2010 and it looks like her relationship with Kasey Kahl is doomed to the same fate. Kahl, 27, and Girardi, 25, began dating in March 2010 and appeared on the reality show, Bachelor Pad 2, together. Things quickly got serious when the couple moved in together in August.
Last week, however, reports surfaced saying the reality couple was on the rocks, but Kahl denied those reports saying they were still together.
Kahl announced today via Twitter that the rumors were right and that his relationship with Girardi is over. “Yes, Vienna and I have split,” he wrote. “It’s been five weeks now. I can’t fake it anymore. I will always love, be there for her, and wish her the best.”
Girardi also wrote about the split on Twitter, saying that Kahl “will always be my friend, but yes, we have split. No idea what the future holds for us, but we will always remain friends.”
So what caused the relationship to end? One source says the couple was going in different directions, but they didn’t want to publicly announce their split.
“Kasey loves [Vienna] but she just has a different idea for their future. Vienna wants to start a life back in her home state of Florida and maybe open a clothing store. Moving in together proved to be a strain on their relationship and Kasey is just not ready. He’s very patient, but it’s been really hard to deal with all the public hatred of Vienna,” Star magazine reports. “They continued to ‘fake’ their romance well after it was over in a desperate bid to stay in the spotlight.”
