AceShowbiz - There seems to be trouble in paradise for "The Bachelorette" alum Gabby Windey and her fiance Erich Schwer. After she was seen ditching her engagement ring for the past two episodes of "Dancing with the Stars", Gabby appeared to hint at their separation during a new interview.
When asked if they are "still together" following the Monday, October 31, episode of the Disney+ dancing competition show, the TV star told Fox News, "Life is just really busy for the both of us right now." She continued, "So I understand their concern but we're just kind of, you know, going forward with each of our individual interests and supporting each other from afar."
Upon catching wind of her reply, some "Bachelor" fan accounts assumed that the pair's romance didn't work out. Fans also admitted that they were sad if the couple really calls it quits. "Sad, but sounds like they're not together. Support is good, but doesn't replace love," one fan commented. "Yeah they def broke up judging from that statement," another fan wrote.
Someone else added, "Oh definitely 'supporting eachother [sic] from afar ' is PR speak for 'we're over'. I thought they'd last at least a few months longer but I've heard DWTS can be a real strain on Bachelor/ette relationships."
Neither Gabby nor Erich has posted a photo with each other since October 12. Erich was also not in attendance at the Monday show. A source, meanwhile, noted to Page Six that Erich was present at almost all of her other performances as recently as October 17.
Despite his absence at the Monday taping, the 29-year-old showed support to Gabby as he encouraged his followers to vote for his fiancee in an Instagram Story post. "She keeps on crushin it," he captioned the screenshot of him texting "Gabby" the maximum ten times to the "DWTS" voting number.
Erich popped the question to Gabby during season 19 finale of the hit ABC series, which aired in September. "I love you, Gabby Windey," he said at the time. "You are amazing. You are the most amazing person I've ever met. It's you, me until the wheels fall off. I'm head over heels in love with you, and I want to spend the rest of my life with you."
