Ben Higgins And Lauren Bushnell Split: Hints They Were Headed For A Breakup

The Bachelor couple Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell have split up. Here are some hints that they were headed for a breakup long before they admitted it to the public.

News broke at the beginning of this week of The Bachelor couple, Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell, calling off their engagement.

Ben and Lauren have faced rumors that they were having relationship problems or on the verge of breaking up for months now and it is clear that there was some truth to those rumors.

The former Bachelor star Ben Higgins continued to tell the public that he and Lauren were still together but looking back, it is obvious that a breakup was imminent.

Hanging around single friends

Lauren Bushnell has been spending a lot of time with her single friends from The Bachelor, according to her Instagram account. She has been hanging out with Amanda Stanton, who recently broke up with Josh Murray.

Amanda and Josh met on Bachelor In Paradise, but the two had a nasty split, according to E! News. They initially broke up in January, attempted to get back together, and then ultimately went their separate ways.

Lauren and Amanda are featured on Bushnell’s Instagram page in bikinis by a pool, taking selfies at a rooftop restaurant, and at Coachella drinking with friends.

Lauren’s been working on her body

Lauren has also been spending a lot of time in the gym working out. The former Bachelor star even took up boxing recently.

People definitely tend to work on their body and exercise to deal with the stress of a breakup. Is Lauren working on her revenge body?

Ben didn’t show for her birthday

A major sign that a breakup was coming for Ben and Lauren was that he didn’t come to her birthday party. Lauren’s fiance’s absence from her party definitely stirred up rumors that the two were having issues in their relationship.

Lauren had an all girls birthday party and posted a photo thanking her friends on Instagram.

So thankful to have so many badass women in my life. (Some pictured here. Many not present in this photo.) I love you all.

A “rocky” relationship

In a post dedicated to Ben for his birthday, Lauren literally described their relationship as “sometimes rocky.” Was this a clue that everything wasn’t picture perfect?

Happy birthday babe!!!!! I’m so thankful for this life together. Although sometimes rocky you always hold my hand and support me through it, always with a smile on your face. You deserve the world, especially today.????????
