Kelley Flanagan shares the real reason why she and Peter Weber split

Although Peter Weber thought he owed it to his fans to share the news of his split at his earliest convenience, Kelley Flanagan said she wanted some "time to process" before she shared her side of the story. Three days after Peter announced their breakup, Kelley took to Instagram on Jan. 3, 2021, writing, "It saddens me to say this but Peter and I have decided to go our separate ways. Peter and I had some unbelievable times together and they will definitely be missed." Subtly sharing why the two decided to part ways, Kelley wrote, "Unfortunately him and I are in two different stages of our lives and saw our future paths differently." 

Despite their breakup, it seems like Kelley still holds the pilot in high regard, but she wants to prioritize me-time in 2021. "I wish Peter the absolute best and want to thank everyone for your continued support as I move on to my next chapter," she wrote. "I'm still hoping to make it to New York one of these days, but for now I just want to focus on my happiness!"
