Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff are reportedly close to breaking up, as bickering over wedding plans and Chris’s ambitions are tearing the Bachelor couple apart.
To the public, Soules and Bischoff appear to be quite happy just weeks after America watched them get engaged on the season finale of The Bachelor. But reports are growing of a rift between Chris and Whitney, and sources say that Soules may be ready to leave Whitney behind to live the Hollywood lifestyle.
A report this week from Celeb Dirty Laundry claims that Chris Soules may want to break up with Whitney Bischoff, who is moving much too fast for his liking. But the report also suggests that Chris may need to keep the relationship alive for the sake of his budding career.
“Despite the fact that Chris Soules has made it very clear that he and his fiancée have not set a wedding date and do not plan to any time soon – Whitney has begun bragging about her ‘farm wedding’ plans to anyone who will listen. According to sources close to the Chicago nurse, Whitney is determined to get married and be a bride, regardless of whether or not Chris Soules is on board. The 2015 Bachelor winner has realized that she actually holds the power in their showmance, and if their engagement falls apart Chris Soules’s image as The Bachelor will too. So, he has no choice but to show up at her farm wedding – or else he can kiss his new found celebrity status goodbye.”
There may be a lot at stake for Chris Soules. Not only would he join the growing list of failed Bachelor and Bachelorette couples, but he would also cut off his top claim to fame: his engagement to the popular and likeable Bischoff. Soules is earning fans and boosting his own image through an appearance on Dancing with the Stars, and there is also talk that the couple could be featured on a new reality show, which would give them both further exposure.
It’s not clear if there is any truth to the rumor that Chris Soules and Whitney Bischoff are breaking up. Celeb Dirty Laundry is known for its frequent reports on celebrity relationship problems, many of which never come to pass. Both Soules and Bischoff have said publicly that they’re happy, which seems to be more than just talk. This week, Whitney showed up to Chris’s Dancing with the Stars rehearsal to lend him some support.
