'As you're all aware, Darvid and I have gone our separate ways. Darvid on the 2/1 came online and publicly announced that we had parted ways,' she began.
'In an ideal world I would have preferred to have a mutual agreement and/ or had a say in when/how we express that to the public but instead woke to that news which obviously kinda shocked me. Which is where you saw my reaction.'
'But Darvid had every right to make that decision, his platform, he can choose that for himself. I'd say it's better to rip the band aid off.'
Brooke went on to say it was her choice to end their relationship.

'My reasons for that are completely valid to me. I had been unhappy for a bit and it wasn't just solely because of the relationship. I have a lot of respect for Darvid and what he gave up for me to be IN the relationship but it seems that we both lost ourselves along the way,' she continued.
'We had a very real love in a very unreal situation but we equally had ALOT of pressure on us too. Which I felt I carried everyday. At the start of the show, I was the best version of myself and when the show ended and my sister died. I became my worst and my saddest.'
Brooke said she and Darvid 'ended up being two different people who wanted different things and that's just that'.

She added: 'I wish him all the very best and with support I'd really just like to move past this and hope that we become the best versions of ourselves this year.'
