FORMER Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay has been married to Bryan Abasolo for a little over a year.
The pair have ignited divorce rumors after admitting that they live in different states.
Who is Bryan Abasolo?
Bryan Abasolo is a chiropractor from Florida.
He is the founder and owner of the Miami Disc & Laser Therapy Center where "he helps people with debilitating neck and back pain regain control of their lives with non-surgical and drug-free treatments," according to his LinkedIn.
He was a contestant on the 13th season of The Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay's season.
The two became engaged when the season finished in 2017.
When did Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo get married?
Lindsay and Bryan tied the knot at Mexico's Royalton Suites Cancun last August.
The couple have a bicoastal relationship as the Bachelorette works on her career in Los Angeles while Bryan, 40, runs his chiropractor business in Miami.
"I didn't move to LA because I just love the city," Rachel, 35, told her husband on his Dr Abs Healthcast podcast in October.
"You're focusing on your practice and building it to a place you want it to be.
"I am here in LA working for Extra and doing other things, and we're doing this to eventually bring ourselves together."
Bryan said he was happy for Rachel "to do [her] thing" in California while he ran his Florida business, noting: "You're killing it right now, and I love it."
Are the two divorcing?
Rumors have surfaced that the two may be divorcing due to their long-distance relationship.
The newlyweds emphasized that they don't plan on living apart forever, however, and that there are no plans for divorce in the future.
"We know where we're going, we know where we're headed, and we know what we're trying to build as Abasolos," said Rachel.
"I can see from the outside looking in how it's like, 'Wow, when Rachel was on the show she talked about not wanting to put her career over her husband.'
"But the thing is, I'm not putting my career over my husband. I'm putting my family first. Part of that is putting us in a position to succeed and put our family in the best position."
The couple isolated together during the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
Rachel – the only black Bachelorette until this season's Tayshia Adams – slammed the ABC franchise for casting its first black Bachelor, Matt James, as a "knee-jerk reaction."
