A source close to the Bachelorette star claimed Tayshia, 31, was the one who “called things off” and it was ultimately “her decision.” 

The insider claimed: “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 but they've been struggling for a few months now. 

“She put her foot down after she reached her breaking point during a big fight they had last week. 

“They fought a lot and this one was bad like some of the others but it just happened to be the fight that broke the camel's back. Their fights would start small but unravel and explode.” 

As for what led to the pair fighting, the informant alleged Tayshia felt Zac, 37, was “very controlling” and “intense” which “worsened” as her professional success skyrocketed.

“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. 

“It was like they lived two separate lives. It seemed like he was jealous of her too, with a lot of new opportunities opening up for her while he stayed in her shadow. 

“He wasn't secure enough to handle her success,” they said.

The source added that “distance was another issue” as Zac will “never, ever leave New York” while Tayshia and her family are California-based. 

“Practically it just wasn’t working. They’ve tried putting on a happy face publicly but those close to them have known something was up for awhile.” 

A rep for Tayshia declined to comment while Zac did not return The Sun's request for comment.

Earlier today, PEOPLE first broke the news that the couple had called it quits following a year of engagement.

The two had met in 2020 when Tayshia took over for Clare Crawley as the ABC lead for season 16.

During the finale, she picked the addiction specialist as her final rose recipient and Zac got down on one knee to propose.

As he got down on one knee, the New York native told Tayshia: ...From our first kiss to riding the Ferris wheel to meeting each other's families, nothing has ever felt so right my entire life.

...You've helped me experience the love that I didn't know existed and you've made me smile more than anyone has ever made me smile. I love you, Tayshia....


She returned the sentiment, saying: ...There was one point in my life where I thought I would never get married because of all of the pain and the heartbreak that I've been through.

...I hit absolute rock bottom and I know that I told you that I love you but, sorry, it's more than that.

...It's this wild, wild love that I have tried to come up with so many reasons to not believe, and you have truly just made me believe that there doesn't need to be flaws and that I deserve a love with a man that won't run away....

This month has appeared to be tough for Tayshia - as she was admitted to the hospital just days before her breakup.

Earlier in November, Zac and Tayshia ran side-by-side during the NYC marathon which they had prepared for together in recent months.

However, shortly after their triumphant race, Tayshia worried fans as she revealed that she was in the hospital.

In an Instagram story, she appeared to be hooked up to an IV and under a hospital blanket. 

The TV star wrote: ...Welp I've been here since 9:30 a.m. What a day....

The TV personality informed her fans that she ...physically could not walk on Monday and Tuesday... and that the experience ...was the most painful thing in the world....

It was unclear what caused her symptoms in the first place.

Zac then praised his former fiancé on social media during her recovery and said he was her side... but days later, they split.
