Former Bachelorette star Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth have broken up and ended their engagement after three years together. Shawn won Kaitlyn's heart (and final rose) on season 11 of The Bachelorette, and he proposed during the season finale. In a statement to People, the pair explained why they're going their separate ways. "This difficult decision comes after thoughtful, respectful consideration. Even though we are parting as a couple, we're very much committed to remaining friends," they said. "We have both evolved as people, which is taking us in different directions, but with the hope that we will continue to support each other in new ways. Due to the nature of how we met, our relationship has always been very public, and we have enjoyed sharing it with all of you, but we ask that you respect our decision and our privacy at this time."
