Taking to Instagram last night, Daniel shared a statement written in his Notes app.

“I’m getting bombarded so much [at the moment] considering all the articles out [right now] about the status of Carolina and I,” he began.

“I think it’s been obvious for a while we have gone our separate ways. There’s no right way to deal with these situations.

“There’s a huge pressure to just hold off going public for as long as possible ‘cause you know all the hate that’s gonna come,” he continued.

“I wish Carolina all the best and I know she feels the same for me, we had a unique experience together full of every emotion possible, but life just has a different plan for us.”

This came just three weeks after Carolina posted video footage of herself and Daniel together, writing “I don’t care what they say, I’m in LOVE with you”.

And now, a source who spoke on the condition of anonymity has claimed that cheating might have been the reason the pair separated.

Carolina also recently alluded to feeling hurt over the split, although it was unconfirmed at the time.

“Smile and no one will see how broken you are inside,” she captioned a photo of herself wearing a bikini at the beach.

Carolina and Daniel faced a rocky road across their relationship, given they weren’t originally paired on MAFS.

Both were intruders on the ninth season, but Carolina was paired with Dion Giannarelli, while Daniel ‘married’ Jessica Seracino.

While Daniel and Jess’ relationship was over before it really began, Carolina remained in a relationship with Dion so she could keep getting to know Daniel behind Dion’s back.

When the pair revealed their tryst to the remainder of brides and grooms during a commitment ceremony, they staged a mass walkout in protest.

Daniel and Carolina were denied their request to remain on the show as a matched couple and left shortly after.

For a while, they seemed to be one of the strongest couples to come out of the show.

They maintained a close friendship with fellow MAFS’ couple Olivia Frazer and Jackson Lonie, but they also announced their split in early August.

Now, no couples remain together from the most recent season.
