Rumours about a split sparked in February; however, Bella had remained mum until now.

In a detailed post, Locky Gilbert‘s runner-up revealed that she had consistently been asked about Will and admitted it was now impacting her well-being.

“Was hoping to keep this private, but due to the public nature of our relationship and the constant questions I’m receiving, I feel as though it’s best to answer this once and for all,” Bella wrote.

“Will and I decided to take some time apart and go our separate ways to focus on ourselves,” she continued. “We have so much love and respect for each other, but this is just what’s best for both of us for now.”

Bella, who recently had a nose job, then shared her love for those who have supported their relationship over the past two years.
