Where is Rachel Lindsay now? Truth behind divorce rumors amid Bachelorette's bicoastal marriage with Bryan Abasolo
The only Black Bachelorette, Rachel got married to Bryan after finding love with him during the season
Rachel Lindsay became America's favorite after appearing on 'The Bachelorette' Season 13. Bachelor Nation fans have showered her with a lot of love but her marriage is something that unfortunately has always been scrutinized from the word go. Rachel had given her final rose to Bryan Abasolo on her season followed by a proposal by him. The two ended up staying engaged for a whole two years before they set a date for their wedding that took place last year in Cancun, Mexico.
Leaving her days as an attorney behind, Rachel switched to doing television shows ('Ghosted') and podcasting. "I felt like I had hit a plateau, where I was just going through the motions, and I needed a change,” she told Refinery 29 once in 2019. “I felt fulfilled in the sense that I knew I wanted to be an attorney and I was living that dream out, but it wasn’t enough for me.”
While she continues building herself as a television personality for which she's also moved to Los Angeles from Dallas, Texas, her husband Abasolos continues following his chosen career path. He's a chiropractor and he practices out of Miami and Rachel dished on their relationship on his Dr Abs Healthcast podcast earlier in 2020. “I didn’t move to LA because I just love the city. You’re focusing on your practice and building it to a place you want it to be, and I am here in LA working for Extra and doing other things, and we’re doing this to eventually bring ourselves together," Rachel said.
Even though they've been living their best life as a bicoastal married couple, the two don't intend to live their lives apart from each other forever. "We know where we’re going, we know where we’re headed, and we know what we’re trying to build as Abasolo," she continued on the podcast. “I can see from the outside looking in how it’s like, ‘Wow, when Rachel was on the show she talked about not wanting to put her career over her husband,'” she added. “But the thing is, I’m not putting my career over my husband. I’m putting my family first. Part of that is putting us in a position to succeed and put our family in the best position," Rachel noted. Abasolo too weighed in saying, "For me, I want you to go do your thing in L.A., I want you to be as successful as possible. You’re killing it right now, and I love it.”
Even though they lived apart, when the pandemic hit, the two decided to quarantine together putting those divorce rumors to rest. However, with rules being a little more relaxed, Rachel is back to LA and so are the doubts amongst Bachelor Nation fans that their relationship which has always been a long-distance affair, is finally ending and are now seeing her move back to where she feels she belongs as proof for the same.
