Another one bites the dust. With the rose given, the ring on her finger and wedding plans in the works, it looked like The Bachelor’s Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell were on their way toward happily ever after (as well as their own spin-off show). But their fairy tale may now be in serious jeopardy, as news is buzzing that Ben has called off the wedding.

In a clip posted to Facebook from their Freeform series, Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After, the pair is seen in couple’s counselling and it’s heartbreaking. As Lauren sits unmoving with a tear streaming down her face, Ben lays out the sitch as he sees it, saying, “I think you’re ready to start a life,” then admits, “I’m not ready for that — not even close.” Oof.

After therapy, Lauren (who’s clearly stunned and hurting) blatantly asks Ben, “So you’re saying the wedding is off?” To which he responds, “Yeah, I am.” Ouch.

Though the clip is unclear on how the issue unfolds and if there’s a clear conclusion (i.e. if the wedding is indeed off for good and their relationship over), we’ll just have to wait and see if this ends up being a Bachelor success story (perhaps this is all just for added press?) or if it will end in heartbreak (boo!).
