The Bachelorette's Kaitlyn Bristowe Reportedly 'Hurt' Over Ex Shawn Booth's Dating Rumors

The amicable split between Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth of The Bachelorette may have taken a turn.

According to an E! News exclusive, published on Friday, Dec. 14, 2018, Bristowe is reportedly "hurt" over rumors that her ex-fiancé has already moved on after calling it quits last month.

As a source cited by the publication claimed, "It's upsetting for Kaitlyn ... She's definitely disappointed." The insider added, "Kaitlyn isn't in the headspace to start dating again, but does have hope for the future. She is really trying to stay positive and focus on herself, but is having a hard time with the dynamic right now."

Readers may already be aware that Booth, 31, sparked dating rumors earlier this month when he was spotted with WWE announcer Charly Arnolt, also 31, on multiple occasions. According to a recent Us Weekly report, the alleged pair reportedly hit it off at a Strong New York fitness event in New York City. At the time of this writing, neither party has publicly commented on the matter. However, Bristowe, 33, later seemed to throw shade at the reported development with a text-post on Instagram, which read, "You just have to take it one 'are you f**king kidding me' at a time."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Bristowe and Booth first announced the end of their three-year engagement in early November 2018. While publicly addressing the mutual split on her Off the Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe podcast weeks later, Bristowe said in part, "It's been a really hard few months now. I really did think we'd get through it." Explaining at the time that "there were some important fundamental values that weren't lining up" and "some things we'd probably never see eye-to-eye on," the reality TV star told her listeners that the exes "will remain friends."

These days, it sounds like Bristowe is looking toward the future. As the same insider told E! News, "Kaitlyn has been spending a lot of time with friends and family, and has been traveling around. She is trying to keep busy. Kaitlyn plans on spending time in Canada for the holidays with her family."
