DeAnna “leaked” breakup news early; Jesse “did not see [breakup] coming”

Bachelor and Bachelorette host takes his job so seriously that he’s on duty even when the show isn’t on the air, and now he has details about how sad Bachelorette 4 winner Jesse is that DeAnna broke up with him–particularly since she didn’t wait to announce the news together.

On 104.3 FM’s Valentine in the Morning today, Chris Harrison said, according to ET’s transcription, “DeAnna went to Breckenridge last week and broke up with Jesse. He was stunned. I’ve talked to Jesse several times today, and he did not see it coming. … He really truly loved DeAnna. He was so happy and he’s like, ‘Let’s just go, let’s go to Breckenridge, let’s go to Atlanta, let’s get the heck out of here, and let’s live our lives. Let’s just get to know each other and hang out.'”

Most amusingly, after the relationship ended, they decided to announce its dissolution together, but then DeAnna announced it in advance, and irritated Jesse, according to Harrison. “They also agreed that this was not gonna get out to the public until Thursday, they were going to release a joint statement and try and keep this above board, and she went out on her own, leaked it, and so he’s just feeling a little beat up right now,” he said.

Meanwhile, here’s the video Jesse posted yesterday, in which he talks about his heartbreak:
