‘The Bachelor’ 2016 Ben Higgins Single Again? Lauren Bushnell ‘Traumatized’

The Bachelor

The last season of “The Bachelor” just ended in March. But is Ben Higgins really single again? Did he really call off his engagement with Lauren Bushnell just a month after the final rose was handed out?

Higgins’ engagement to Bushnell is still on. But, according to Hollywood Life, things are not looking too good for the couple. Bushnell was supposed to permanently move to Higgins’ hometown in Colorado next month. But, reports suggest, she might just change her mind about it. Bushnell has reportedly been “feeling unsteady” about their relationship after she travelled to Colorado earlier this week.

“Everyone around them can feel the awkwardness,” a source was quoted as saying. “It’s unclear if they will last. Things between them are getting worse.” According to the gossip news site, Higgins seems to agree. The latest Bachelor even called their first date in Colorado a “traumatic” experience after they both got caught in an elevator.

It also does not help that Bushnell can’t seem to get over what happened in the last few episodes of the reality dating show. “Lauren tries not to think about it,” a source said. “But she is traumatized that Ben told another girl he loved her.”  If you remember, Higgins also told “Bachelor” runner-up, Jojo Fletcher he loved her before the final rose is given.

But Fletcher is not the only girl Bushnell seems to be worried about. In a separate report, Hollywood Life said that Higgins has been making secret phone calls to his ex-girlfriend.

“Ben values his ex’s opinion on things,” a source was quoted as saying. “After breaking up, they would catch up here and there, but they got closer in the past year. Even when Ben got engaged to Lauren, that didn’t stop them from talking.”

Will Higgins and Bushnell still make it to their wedding? Stay tuned for updates.
