According to Reality Steve, Josh and Amanda broke up, but they haven’t gone public with the news yet because they’re trying to decide the best time to announce it. It is the holidays after all.
The cause of the breakup is still unclear. But Reality Steve says they had been having a lot of relationship problems since getting engaged. So Amanda ended the engagement, and Josh moved into a hotel.
This split was all the more shocking because Josh and Amanda have been spending lots of time together as a couple. They just spent Thanksgiving with Josh’s family, went to Jingleball, and attended Becca Tilley’s blog launch party. But Reality Steve claims they were just keeping up appearances on social media. And Josh seemed angry during the couple's recent trip to Taco Bell, which was documented on her Instagram story.
Josh and Amanda did have a rocky relationship from the start, though. Nick Viall and many others warned Amanda about Josh on BIP 3. They were concerned after Andi Dorfman accused Josh of emotional abuse in her book. She claimed Josh was controlling and manipulative.
Despite the warnings, Josh and Amanda got engaged on BIP 2016. Amanda even said she never read Andi’s book. “There are two sides to every story,” Amanda told Us.
Then Josh and Amanda had more problems after BIP 3 stopped filming. Sources told ET they broke up multiple times because they were having trouble transitioning into the real world. Amanda’s ex-husband, Nick Buonfiglio, also said that Amanda told him she and Josh were having issues.
Josh and Amanda seemed to move past their problems in recent months, though. They lived together in California and even went house hunting. Josh also stuck by Amanda’s side during her custody battle and became close with Amanda’s kids.
