One month on from their very public split and things between Brooke Blurton and Darvid Garayeli seem to remain very tense.

After the 2021 Bachelorette star claimed in a recent interview that their break-up was made public to purposely ‘humiliate’ and ‘silence’ her, Darvid took to social media to issue a brutal response.

“When will it end?” he wrote on his Instagram Story on Tuesday.

“This was never my intention… There’s a lot more to the story that hasn’t been shown. I’ve stayed quiet in hopes it would simmer out, incredibly confused as to why it’s being dragged on.”


While she had previously admitted to being the one to end the relationship, Brooke told NITV’s The Point on Tuesday that said was blindsided by Darvid’s decision to announce the news online last month.

“I had no choice in any part of it going public. I would have preferred not to, but it did,” she said.

“I feel like it was just to humiliate me, to have one over me. What else did I have to do? I was silenced, I was defenceless, I just had to cop it.”

Darvid shocked fans when he took to Instagram on January 2, one day after Brooke celebrated her 27th birthday, to announce that they were no longer together.

“Starting the new year off with an end to a chapter and hopefully the beginning of another,” he wrote. “Unfortunately Brooke and I have parted ways. Whilst we both genuinely thought we were each other’s person, things change and that's okay.”

Brooke released her own statement shortly after, revealing that she was surprised by Darvid’s post and found it “quite overwhelming”.

"I just woke up to the news. It was definitely agreed to part ways. I just wanted to do it privately, amicably and respectfully,” she said.

The youth worker ended up sharing more details about the separation a few weeks later and confirmed that she was the one to end the relationship after a couple of months.

“In an ideal world I would have preferred to have a mutual agreement and/or had a say in when/how we express that to the public but instead woke to that news which obviously kinda shocked me. Which is where you saw my reaction,” she explained.

“But Darvid had every right to make that decision, his platform, he can choose that for himself. I'd say it's better to rip the band-aid off.”
