You know what they say, even the sun sets in Paradise. Despite being one of the success stories stemming from Season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise, fan favorites Tayshia Adams and John Paul Jones have split.

After weeks of speculation about the status of the couple, the brunette beauty took to her Instagram to set the record straight. Alongside an adorable selfie of the once-happy couple, Tayshia wrote, "I know you guys have been asking about John and I recently, and as much as I like to keep my personal life private, I realize you have all watched and been a part of our journey from the beginning."

"Therefore to stay true to that, I need to be open and honest with you in order to heal and move on."

I know you guys have been asking about John and I recently, and as much as I like to keep my personal life private, I realize you have all watched and been a part of our journey from the beginning. Therefore to stay true to that, I need to be open and honest with you in order to heal and move on. John and I had something incredibly special. We fell for each other in Paradise, and everything was a whirlwind after that. When the show ended, I truly went back to Maryland to see if what we had was something we could build on without cameras, a production crew, and without feeling any pressure: to simply figure things out on our own terms. But the reality was, we were living on opposite coasts, and working insane schedules that made it impossible to see each other and build a life with each other. We truly did the best we could, but at this time have decided that what is best for the both of us is to go our separate ways. We are the best of friends and will continue to remain in each other’s life because regardless of the situation, we make each other happy💕💕

There's a chance the 'Paradise' couple got engaged in the season finale, but are they still together now?

Though they couldn't make it work in the real world, it doesn't mean they didn't give it an honest shot. Tayshia confirmed the couple truly put in a solid effort in an attempt to salvage what they once had, but ultimately decided to part ways.

"We are the best of friends and will continue to remain in each other’s life because regardless of the situation, we make each other happy," she concluded.

It hasn't been an easy road from the start for these two, who originally called it quits during the Sept. 10 episode of Paradise in a tear-filled breakup. Though by the time the reunion special rolled around, they were already back together.
