Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi Are “Still Very Much Together” (UPDATE)
UPDATE (6/29/2017 at 11:00 a.m. ET):
Word spread yesterday that the Bachelor 2017 pair are on the rocks, after they were spotted on a plane together looking “miserable” and hardly interacting.
However, a new report says all of this has been blown out of proportion, and they’re actually "still very much together."
“There are ups and downs with every relationship,” the source tells ETOnline.com.
Even though they’ve hit some bumps in the road, the insider maintains their commitment is solid — so much so, they moved into a new place together this week!
The shared living space is said to be an apartment in downtown L.A., a space they plan to use as homebase while traveling around for their various projects.
For Vanessa, that’s going back and forth to Montreal and focusing on her charity, No Better You, while Nick is promoting his grooming line, The Polished Gent.
The Season 21 winner also appeared to respond to the breakup buzz on Twitter last night.
“It amazes me how much time people waste on being so negative,” she wrote hours after the story broke.

OK, so for now, you can take these two off split watch it seems. In the meantime, click through for more on what initially caused these reports!
Original story (6/28/2017 at 5:30 p.m. ET):
There’s something going on in Bachelor Nation because they can’t stop breaking up!
From their latest posts on social media, it seemed like the Bachelor 2017 duo were living a happily engaged life together in their recent mutual home of Los Angeles.
They’ve been sharing plenty of date night pics, always looking cozy and enamored with one another. But a new report says this is not always how it is behind the scenes.
The Season 21 lovebirds attended Evan Bass and Carly Waddell’s wedding last week in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, which you’d think would put them in a romantic mood.
Unfortunately, from the onlookers perspective, that wasn’t the case for these two — specifically on their flight home to L.A..
“They looked miserable,” a witness tells Us Weekly.
“They didn’t exchange five words the entire flight. They were angled completely away from each other.”
It got even worse after they touched down in La La Land.
The insider recalls, “Nick grabbed his bag and ran ahead of Vanessa.”
“They really don’t seem to like each other,” they add.
A far cry from the hugging and kissing we’ve seen on their IGs, though to be fair, they’ve been on rocky ground since day one.
Sources reveal to the mag the Bachelor and his new fiancée have been at odds since their finale aired in March, arguing over things like where to live, jealousy, and public scrutiny of their relationship.
Things seemed to have calmed down since Nick’s time on Dancing With the Stars ended, but on a recent date night, Vanessa sent an interesting message in her accessorizing choices.
What we mean by that is she was noticeably sans her 3.5-carat Neil Lane ring, which insiders say might be due to one of their frequent fights.
“It’s not a solid relationship, and it won’t last,” the insider claims.
Interestingly, those close to the situation say the root of their issues is actually just their similarities.
The Wisconsin-raised hunk has never apologized for his “big personality,” and he admits he will “push back” against those with whom he disagrees.
“Vanessa is no pushover. She’s not going to just do whatever he wants,” a source adds.
“He’s attracted to that, but it makes their relationship volatile.”
Keep an eye on these two!
