Clare Crawley's romance with Dale Moss may have been surprisingly short-lived, but reports claim that cheating isn't what caused the two to go their separate ways! As Entertainment Tonight shares, a source says that Crawley and Moss were serious about their relationship, despite rumours that infidelity ended up leading to their breakup!

Crawley and Moss had been looking at apartments

Crawley and Moss became engaged last year after they fell in love during Crawley's season of The Bachelorette. Their coupling up caused Crawley to exit the show, with Tayshia Adams coming in as the new "Bachelorette"! As Entertainment Tonight mentions, it was revealed this week that the couple has split, but an insider close to Moss says that infidelity wasn't the problem! 

"The 'girl' they have in question of him 'cheating' with is a longtime friend of his. She is a real estate broker and has been helping him find a new apartment for him and Clare in NYC," the source explained. "There is zero truth to any cheating rumors. Dale was faithful the entire time he was dating Clare. He never cheated on her."

Crawley and Moss supposedly ended things last week

Crawley took to Instagram on Thursday to share her side of the story, saying that she was blindsided by how her relationship with Moss ended. "Speaking for myself, my intentions with this relationship have always been very clear, so the truth is I am crushed," the former "Bachelorette" wrote. "This was not what I expected or hoped for, and am still trying to process this."

However, the source goes on to contradict Crawley's statement, claiming that she and Moss had actually broken up some time before the news became public! "Dale broke up with Clare last week, after their San Diego trip ended. He wanted to release his statement then, but Clare begged him to wait to announce it," the insider told Entertainment Tonight.

"She told him she needed some time to deal with it herself before the world knew, and he respected her wishes," the insider went on to say. "Clare knew well before everyone else that this was coming out and didn’t find out with the rest of the world." 

As for Crawley's Bachelorette replacement Adams, she ended up finding love with Zac Clark! The two became engaged in the show's season 16 finale— a beautiful ending that Adams admitted to almost spoiling before it had aired! Hopefully their relationship will end up lasting for some time!
