Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell reportedly broke up about a week ago, but could they be getting back together?
According to InTouch Weekly, the former Bachelor star posted a super sweet birthday message to his ex-girlfriend on Instagram, and what he wrote made some people wonder what is really going on between the two.
“Happy BIRTHDAY to one of the women with the BIGGEST and most CARING hearts I have ever MET… Besitos @Nikki_Ferrell,” Galavis captioned a pic of him and Ferrell.
This definitely doesn’t sound like a message from a guy who just broke up with his girlfriend… unless the two broke up on “good terms.”
Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell dated for a few months after The Bachelor wrapped, but their relationship never really advanced. The two didn’t get engaged at the end of the show, and didn’t move in together after the show aired. They were sort of just in this weird limbo.
The couple decided to do VH1’s Couples Therapy (perhaps, in part, because they got paid) where they had explosive fights that ended in tears. Fans have watched the show each week, wondering why Ferrell stayed with Galavis for as long as she did. He still has never told her that he loves her, which was one of the biggest issues the two had. Nikki always felt like she had to fight for Juan Pablo, like she was waiting for him to tell her she “won.”
“I feel like why give someone 100 percent, if they’re not giving you 100 percent? I still feel like he’s holding back… If I’m always gonna have this feeling like I’m always waiting for him to choose me, the relationship is not gonna work. I feel like he could up and leave from this relationship at any time, and he’ll be completely fine with it.”
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Nikki got so frustrated with Juan Pablo, but she stuck by his side, determined to work things out with him. However, something must have happened because the two went their separate ways — or did they?
According to Us Weekly, Juan Pablo used Nikki Ferrell to “stay relevant.” Sources say that Galavis wanted to capitalize on his “15 minutes of fame,” so he stayed with Nikki in order to make the most of his go at being a celebrity. Fans knew from the get-go that this relationship wasn’t going to last, but it seems clear that there is something more between the two that no one really understands… maybe not even the two of them.
