The relationship between former The Bachelor star Chris Soules and Dancing With The Stars partner Witney Carson may have reached a breaking point. According to Celebrity Dirty Laundry, Soules is urging Carson to go public with their relationship, which Carson isn’t willing to do.
“Chris wants to go public. But Witney is scared – she hasn’t been with ABC long and she doesn’t want to step on any toes by confirming her relationship with the network’s latest Bachelor,” an inside source explained.
“Because that would mean confirming that she broke up their beloved Chris and Whitney. Chris is pressuring her though because he sees the writings on the wall and knows he has to do something big to stay in the news. And confirming he is dating his DWTS partner would do the trick.”
Soules’ relationship with Carson isn’t exactly a secret. Following their appearance together on Dancing With The Stars, the two apparently started dating and have even scheduled appearances together this summer. At the same time, Soule’s former fiancée, Whitney Bischoff, decided to end things and go back to Chicago in light of the rumors that he was cheating on her.
According to KpopStarz, Soules’ break up with Bischoff was confirmed when a representative of the couple released a statement that explained how the pair ended things with mutual respect.
“Whitney Bischoff and Chris Soules have mutually and amicably decided to end their engagement. They part with nothing but respect and admiration for one another and will continue to be supportive friends. They wish to thank everyone who has supported them through this journey.”
Following the news of the breakup, Soules released his own statement on Twitter, thanking fans for their understanding and support in the matter. “I can’t thank you all enough for the kind messages over the past few days. This has been really tough and your support means a lot to me,” he posted.
Despite the idea that Soules and Bischoff’s split was amicable, many are accusing the Bachelor star of doing it for attention. In fact, Soules is preparing to appear in his third reality show in only one year, and it is obvious that he isn’t going to return to his farming days in Iowa any time soon.
Perhaps Chris Soules longing for more fame is a motivation behind his desire to go public with his relationship with Carson. If that is the case, then this might also be a reason why Carson doesn’t want to have their relationship out in the open. Whether or not this leads to the couple breaking things off before they really even began is yet to be seen.
