The Bachelor in Paradise couple Grant Kemp and Lace Morris has called off their engagement after nearly three months since he popped the question on national TV.
Kemp and Morris were among the most passionate couples in Bachelor in Paradise. During the BIP season finale on Sept. 6, Kemp finally asked Morris to marry him. After they got engaged, Lace moved to San Francisco, California to live with Kemp.
Morris previously appeared on Ben Higgins’ season of The Bachelor, while Kemp courted JoJo Fletcher on The Bachelorette Season 12.
The real estate agent admitted that there have been bickering between them for about a month now. Kemp, on the other hand, said they tried to work things out but it did not turn out as they want it to be.
Morris said it was a mutual decision to end the relationship. “It really was mutual. We both have our issues we need to work on, and we can’t really give each other what we need at this time. It’s just not the right timing. We have so much love for each other, and it’s weird because the chemistry is there,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
The last time Morris shared a photo of them together was during his birthday three weeks ago. Kemp, meanwhile, posted a photo with former fiancé two weeks ago to promote Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell’s new reality show, Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After?, in which they also appear.
What happens to their matching tattoos now?
The two combined their names, Grace, and had it tattooed on their wrists during one of their dates in BIP Season 3.
Morris vowed to keep her tattoo tribute to Kemp as well as her engagement ring. She told TMZ that the ink reminds her of fond memories in the reality show. Although Morris is not rushing to have it removed, she is “open” to getting rid of it in the future.
As for her $98,000 engagement ring, the 27-year-old beauty said she is keeping it unless she is asked to give it back. The Bachelor host Chris Harrison previously said that it is a standard procedure for failed engagements in the franchise to return the ring.
Kemp and Morris are not the only couple who got engaged during the BIP season finale. Carly Waddell and Evan Bass also got engaged, and Amanda Stanton and Josh Murray are also planning to tie the knot. Both couples are still going strong.
