Peter Weber and Madison Prewett have decided to go their separate ways days after announcing that they would fight for their love on the very dramatic 'The Bachelor' finale. Weber announced the sad news on his Instagram, noting that it was a mutual decision. 

"Madi and I have mutually decided to not pursue our relationship any further. Believe me this was not easy for either of us to be ok with, but after a lot of honest conversations, we have agreed that this is what makes most sense for the two of us. The love and respect I have for Madi will continue to endure," said Pete, thanking his basketball champ ex-girlfriend Madison for her "patience and unconditional love".

"You're the epitome of a woman who carries herself with grace, stands by what she believes in, and loves wholeheartedly. That love is something I feel so grateful to have felt and will take a piece of that with me always going forward," he said.

"I want to start by acknowledging the incredible group of women that I had the privilege of getting to know this season. Thank you for coming on this journey with me. I learned so many lessons from all of you that I will carry with me," Peter wrote

He also mentioned the second runner up this season, model Hannah Ann, for setting "an example for women everywhere a couple nights ago". Hannah Ann had given Peter a piece of her mind for breaking off the engagement and proposing to her when he was still in love with Madison.

"You are such a strong, confident woman and you deserve all the love in the world. I accept full responsibility for my mistakes in our relationship and wish you only the best. This has been an emotional experience and I am so grateful for the outreach of support that I have received from friends, family, and Bachelor Nation in the last few days. Thank you to all of you! This is just another chapter in my story. One I will never forget and one I will always cherish," Peter said.
