Lindsay Hubbard never approved Carl Radke’s note about their breakup before he sent it out to friends and family, a source exclusively revealed to TheFantasyTimes Monday.
Just hours after People shared a copy of the shady note, a source close to Hubbard told us that the “Summer House” star, 37, was blindsided by her former fiancé’s rash decision.
“Lindsay did not approve of Carl’s letter before it was made public, so there is no ‘we,’” the insider said. “She’s definitely hurt by it, for sure.”
In the note, Radke announced that their Nov. 17 nuptials were officially called off and apologized to their anticipated guests for any inconvenience.
“Words cannot possibly express how difficult the last two weeks have been for Lindsay and I,” he wrote. “We are so incredibly sorry to all of our guests for the confusion and lack of communication. We were left trying to figure out how this all exactly happened before we could even have the opportunity to determine the path forward amongst ourselves.”
Although he didn’t explain why the pair decided to part ways, he claimed that there have been “a lot of false narratives and misunderstandings that have made this all the more painful.”
“The fact of the matter is Lindsay is devastated and I’m crushed with how all this transpired,” Radke continued. “I graciously ask for some patience and grace to heal and recover while we navigate this extremely difficult time.”
The reality TV star, 38, then apologized for creating such a “mess,” noting that many people had already put a lot of “money and time” into preparing for the destination wedding in Mexico.
“I don’t take [this] lightly. We are super grateful for the love and support you have shown us and will do what I can to help with any costs associated with changing plans.”
“Thanks for your unconditional love and support during this tough time. Will be in touch with further updates. With love, Carl.”
Reps for “Summer House” stars did not immediately respond to TheFantasyTimes’s request for comment.
