The Veronicas' Jess Origliasso Splits From Fiancé Kai Carlton: "I Wish to Put This Behind Me"
The Veronicas' Jess Origliasso has split from her fiancé, American musician Kai Carlton, but, like fans, seems confused about the end of the relationship.
"We are no longer together," Jess explained in her Instagram Stories today. "I was not afforded any real explanation to address this with clarity here.
"While I appreciate your concern; as much of our relationship was on social media, I don't know what to say except that I wish to put this behind me, and I am lucky to have people who love me to support me through this time x.
"Thank you for your ongoing love," she concluded.
Jess and Kai became engaged at Joshua Tree, California in October 2019 after one year together. But the couple had been living separately due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with Jess in Queensland and Kai in Los Angeles.
Kai posted a now-deleted message to Jess on Instagram in August, writing that his partner hadn't been able to visit him in the US since February. "Its been almost 6 months, 3 travel applications, hundreds of FaceTimes, and thousands of texts since. Though the times have been tough and trying, there is no one I appreciate, love and admire more in these times than you.
"'From the other side of the world you still manage to grow with me, learn to be better together, and recommit everyday no matter what the circumstance and for that I'm grateful and more.
"You're a goddess from a heavenly realm my Jessie, and I adore you love, thank you for your love and light everyday, No one ever better f**k with this girl or I will literally behead youu with a samurai sword."
