Viewers first met Tayshia Adams in 2019, when she and 29 other women competed to win Colton Underwood’s heart in Season 23 of The Bachelor. Tayshia was sent home before Colton gave his final rose to Cassie Randolph (and hopped over that fence), but she was given another chance at love on Season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise. On the spin-off series, she began a short-lived relationship with fellow contestant John Paul Jones.
Although the couple split before the season finale, Tayshia, who recently replaced Chris Harrison as the co-host of The Bachelorette, ultimately found happiness with her now-fiancé, Zac Clark in Season 16. But recent reports suggest that there may be trouble in paradise. So, is Tayshia Adams still with Zac Clark? Her rep has finally commented on the split speculation.
Is Tayshia Adams still with Zac Clark? The two recently broke off their engagement.
Though viewers thought that Zac and Tayshia were going to go the distance and that they would be one of the few Bachelor Nation couples to walk down the aisle, the couple has reportedly parted ways.
Tayshia Adams and Zac Clark haven't directly announced their split themselves, but the Click Bait with Bachelor Nation host's representative did confirm the breakup to People.
"Tayshia Adams and Zac Clark are no longer a couple," her rep shared in a statement to the outlet.
The confirmation comes several days after a source told Life & Style that the two were taking time apart, less than a year after Zac's proposal aired on The Bachelorette.
"They're definitely taking some time apart to figure things out," the insider said to Life & Style. "It doesn't look good."
"They were in love and they still care about each other, but they're going their separate ways," a source added. "They really did have a good run."
Fans were speculating that Tayshia and Zac broke up for quite some time.
The split news came as a surprise to fans, as Tayshia and Zac ran in the New York City Marathon together in the first week of November 2021. Just days after Tayshia crossed the finish line, she was hospitalized for serious stomach pains.
Fans wondered if there was trouble in paradise because Tayshia did not recover at Zac's New York City apartment, though she remained in the area.
Following the race, eagle-eyed fans noticed that Tayshia was not wearing her engagement ring during two consecutive recordings of the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast. She also did not sport the sparkler on the red carpet during a premiere event for House of Gucci.
While the pair had discussed getting married in 2022, it's clear now that any and all wedding plans are off the table.
Until either Tayshia or Zac opens up about the split, you can catch the California native on new episodes of The Bachelorette on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
