Thompson, 36, also spoke about the pair’s split, saying that while fans watch their love story unfold on TV, people “have little insight into the realities of our daily lives.”
‘The last few weeks have been particularly challenging for me,’ he confessed on Instagram Just two hours before my estranged wife posted. “Just as many of us experience loss and life-changing events, we go through a grief cycle as we navigate our emotions.”
He continued, “Every person perceives and experiences grief when a relationship ends, let alone the loss of a marriage in public. We are dealing with physical and emotional challenges.”
Thompson went on to say that he leaned toward those “loyal” to him to keep out those who were “disappointed or disagreed” with his “truth or happiness.”
“Most importantly, I’ve learned that it’s okay to not be okay and that staying true to yourself is essential to finding your way.”

“I am heartbroken that my marriage is over.

Many fans of the hit reality show were shocked to hear that the pair split after Rules gushed about plans to renew the former couple’s vows a month ago.
