Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo are one of the successful love stories when it comes to ‘The Bachelorette’ reality show.
But as the couple is currently going through a distance-relationship because of career reasons, rumors started to surface on the internet that the duo is separated and planning for divorce.
However, the couple has decided to put an end to those rumors by addressing them in the media. Rachel Lindsay spoke to an exclusive interview with US Weekly and revealed that the rumors aren’t true. She said,
“What people don’t realize is we were pretty much long-distance before [we got married] with all the traveling that I was doing pre-COVID. I didn’t actually have a place somewhere else, but I was never at home because I was always traveling.”
“And so for us, you know, we know how to work this out and navigate it, and obviously we have an end goal in mind. This is not a forever situation.”
“The reason that we decided to let people in on that is that there was so much speculation about whether or not we were still together. I think some of that is because another couple announced that they were getting divorced.”
“So, then people in Bachelor Nation start looking elsewhere to see if there’s, you know, trouble in paradise somewhere else. So, we thought, OK, we’ll go ahead and address it. And people still think we’re getting a divorce.”
“I don’t want to be on social the whole time. Who am I doing that for, you? No, that’s not for us,” she said. “We’re trying to, like, soak up all the time that we can have with one another.”

“Communication has always been the foundation of our relationship and we always have those tough conversations, so watching Bryan protest and scream ‘Black Lives Matter’ and really get emotional in the whole experience…of course I look over and am like, ‘Gosh, I made the right decision, because he understands me and I understand him,” Lindsay told Entertainment Tonight’s, Lauren Zima. “It was also marching for our future, our future child, who will be Black. I don’t know if they’ll be male or female, but they may face some of these injustices that we’re experiencing right now. So, we’re marching for our future family, and that’s what was representative of what we went out there and did that day.”
