Another one bites the dust…
Bachelor In Paradise’s last remaining couple have called it quits after eight months of dating.
Jake Ellis and Megan Marx took to Instagram to reveal the split, saying that their break up has been “destroying” and they were “devastated”.
“Our first kiss and first date was on a reality TV show – something I’ll always treasure as a beautiful experience and as beautiful memories,” Megan wrote. “I’d be lying if I said this break up has been anything but destroying.”
Jake uploaded a post of own, saying they have decided to take a break from their relationship and that “words will never express the heartbreak”.
“I wish with all my heart that this wasn’t happening,” he wrote.

This is the post that I thought and hoped I would never ever have to write. Megan and I are sadly taking a break from our relationship together and words will never express the heartbreak I’m feeling right now. No matter what you believe, our relationship was as real and beautiful as they come, I love her wholeheartedly. Megan is and always will be the best part of me, the most beautiful and intelligent woman I’ve ever had the privilege of loving, my best friend. I wish with all of my heart that this wasn’t happening right now but the only thing I can hope for is that one day soon we will rekindle our special love and come back together stronger than ever before – but unfortunately that time is just not right now. I will always hold that hope. 💔 #devastated
Wait a second! Was Megan the one who initiated the split?
“The only thing I can hope for is that one day soon we will rekindle our special love and come back together stronger than ever before,” he added.
As heartbreaking as it is, we all knew the relationship was on the rocks. Over the past few months, both parties have written some lengthy posts about their issues.
Earlier this month, Jake said: “Relationships aren’t always perfect, not always the fairytale that you put out to the world.”
“It takes work sometimes, to learn about each other & face those tough relationship obstacles together. That’s what is real. In being honest, this is something that we have faced recently, not certain on how we would come out the other end.”

Relationships aren’t always perfect, not always the fairytale that you put out to the world. It takes work sometimes, to learn about each other & face those tough relationship obstacles together. That’s what is real. In being honest, this is something that we have faced recently, not certain on how we would come out the other end. But the one thing that was unquestionable was the beautiful love we have for each other, the happiness we feel side by side and the strength this gave us. I thought that the greatest thing that had ever happened to me was us finding each other, but I was wrong – The greatest thing that will ever happen to me was us finding each other again. My best friend and lover, I love you. ❤️ #truth #love
Megan also shared a post of her own, writing: “If I can be so bold – we’ve had a rough couple of months. We weren’t sure if we’d even last.”
While Jake and Megan have made the split official, is it possible that they’ll get back together in the near future? We’re sure Jake hopes so (… and so do we).
