The Bachelorette‘s Clare Crawley has been ‘crushed’ after publically finding out that fiance Dale Moss called off their engagement last week.
The 39-year-old reality star has been trying to pick up the pieces of her life after claiming Moss’s so-called ‘mutual’ statement about them going their separate ways was one-sided.
Despite breaking her silence on the matter and asking for empowering song recommendations, Crawley was seen out in her native Sacramento on Monday still wearing a noticeable ring on her left hand.

Seemingly trying to beat the breakup blues, Crawley was seen strolling with a friend as she gave a kid a piggyback ride.
She looked sporty for the outing as she wore a pair of leggings and purple accented sneakers with a Mickey Mouse sweatshirt.
Tucking her blonde locks underneath a baseball cap she was seen suited up in a face mask while getting some fresh air.
Crawley made no effort to hide the conspicuous-looking ring on that finger as she was seen waving to people and adjusting her hat.

Previously engaged: Despite a whirlwind romance that ended in a proposal, Moss took to Instagram last week to post a statement as he announced they were going their ‘separate ways’
Perhaps trying to put on a brave face, she seemed to be all smiles on the outing despite currently coping with the earth-shattering breakup.
Crawley thought she found her prince charming when she met the former football player on the hit ABC show, swiftly making it known that she had no intentions of getting to know anyone but Moss.
A mere weeks into the season their love story ended in a proposal and the pair seemed to be headed towards the altar.
Despite what seemed like a fairytale ending, Moss found himself frequently fielding cheating rumors and their long distance relationship seemed to grow a bit strained at times.

Last week Moss took to Instagram to share that he and Crawley had decided to go their ‘separate ways,’ making the split seem amicable.
‘I wanted to share with you all that Clare and I have decided to go our separate ways. We appreciate the love and support we’ve received from so many people but this is the healthiest decision for both of us at this time.’
‘We strongly believe in leading with love and always remaining true to oneself – something our families have taught and instilled in us throughout our lives. We only hope the best for one another,’ he signed off.
Making amends: He proceeded to jump on social media Monday to address Clare’s response to the post and try and squash cheating rumors
One-sided: Clare refuted his claims that the breakup announcement was ‘mutual’ as she said she found out along with everyone else that Moss had chosen to move on
Crawley hit back at his statement days after as she cleared the air on her end, saying she was blindsided by the news and watched it unfold just like the public.
‘I was made aware of a “mutual” statement at the same time you all were, so I’ve needed some time to really digest this. Speaking for myself, my intentions with this relationship have always been very clear, so the truth is I am crushed.’
‘This was not what I expected or hoped for and am still trying to process this.’
She continued to explain the hardships of the past year before adding, ‘Our relationship was not perfect, but I can say I was genuinely invested with all my heart.’
Blindsided: In her public statement she made it clear that the decision to break the five-month engagement was not hers; January 21
After her statement, Moss proceeded to hop on Instagram to further explain himself as fans were quick to comment that he did not look distraught over the breakup one bit.
‘I know a lot of y’all have seen me smile on social media and say I don’t seem as hurt or burdened by this, but that’s the farthest thing [from the truth].’
‘Media will take things and run with them. People will spread lies or always want to point the finger, but the fact of the matter is, there’s no one person to blame in this situation.’

‘Like every relationship, we’ve had our ups and downs and have gone through our things, but the statements that have come out didn’t come out of nowhere,’ he claimed.
With Moss in New York and Clare based in Sacramento, Moss was seen out dining with women on multiple occasions, causing many to speculate that there was infidelity on his end.
One woman in particular was Eleonora Srugo, though both denied any romantic relationship, as a rep for her told Page Six, ‘They have never been involved dating — or romantically — in any way whatsoever. Any claims they have dated or were romantically involved are blatant lies.’
