Last month, we were pretty shocked when Lauren Bushnell and Ben Higgins decided to split, calling off their Bachelor engagement. But now the reason behind their decision makes a little more sense. Lauren opened up about her breakup with Ben, giving some real insight into what happened behind the scenes.


In an interview with People, Lauren admitted that while they still had chemistry, emotionally, she and Ben just weren't connecting anymore -- and that had been going on for a while.
