It looks like Bachelor in Paradise couple John Paul Jones and Tayshia Adams have ended their relationship. The announcement of their breakup comes just shortly after JPJ made the move to Los Angeles. At the time he said he was moving for both career reasons and to be closer to Tayshia.
John Paul and Tayshia are over
Tayshia took to Intagram today to share the sad news. It sounds like the decision to part ways was mutual by them both. Tayshia said,
“I know you guys have been asking about John and I recently, and as much as I like to keep my personal life private, I realize you have all watched and been a part of our journey from the beginning. Therefore to stay true to that, I need to be open and honest with you in order to heal and move on.
John and I had something incredibly special. We fell for each other in Paradise, and everything was a whirlwind after that. When the show ended, I truly went back to Maryland to see if what we had was something we could build on without cameras, a production crew, and without feeling any pressure: to simply figure things out on our own terms. But the reality was, we were living on opposite coasts, and working insane schedules that made it impossible to see each other and build a life with each other.
We truly did the best we could, but at this time have decided that what is best for the both of us is to go our separate ways. We are the best of friends and will continue to remain in each other’s life because regardless of the situation, we make each other happy💕💕.”
John Paul shared more info on a recent podcast
US Weekly is also reporting the news of Tayshia and John Paul’s split. It was shared on a recent podcast that the former couple had just seen and spent time together last Friday. He said, “Tayshia and I met last Friday, but we have so much going on in our personal lives it is very difficult to focus on a serious relationship.”
Tayshia and John Paul connected with each other during season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise. They didn’t actually leave the show together though. They broke up prior to the final episode. However, Tayshia went to Maryland to try and salvage their relationship. She realized she had made a mistake. The two have been together since that time, until now.
