Why did Tayshia and Zac break up?

The fan-favorite couple shocked the world when they ended their engagement in late 2021. Since reports of their split took over social media, fans have been curious to know the reason behind their breakup — they seemed so perfect, so what went wrong?

A source told The Sun that Tayshia was the one who called off their engagement, and that the decision to split was her idea.

The source also stated that "Zac wasn't on board [with the split] and tried and tried to talk her out of it, he really wanted to make things work."

Close friends and relatives of the couple noted that they fought a lot, and that one particular argument led to Tayshia's breaking point. The source revealed to The Sun that their frequent fights might've had to do with Zac's "very controlling" and "intense" nature. Those traits only worsened the more success Tayshia achieved in her career.

"She has asked him to work on that controlling aspect of himself, but it's only gotten worse as their relationship went on," the source declared. "The more her career took off, the more controlling he would be. He hated not having her around a lot of the time with her being primarily in Los Angeles or traveling for filming."

Another significant factor in their split was distance. Tayshia and her family are based out of California, while Zac resides in New York City. Neither one of them was willing to pack up their life and move across the country, so, in the end, they made the best decision.

Now, with Season 18 Bachelorette Michelle Young gearing up for her "Men Tell All" segment, which premieres on Monday, Dec. 6, can we expect Tayshia to address her breakup with Zac?

Tayshia will address her split from Zac during Michelle's "Men Tell All" episode.

Tayshia, who's currently co-hosting The Bachelorette with fellow former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe, will address her split from Zac Clark during Michelle's "The Men Tell All" episode. Promotional photos leading up to the event feature Tayshia posing without her engagement ring, confirming their split came before the event was filmed.
