The Bachelorette: Brooke Blurton says Darvid Garayeli split could never compare to losing her sister


The Bachelorette star Brooke Blurton opened up about her devastating past year in a raw video shared to her Instagram page on Sunday night.

In the footage, the 26-year-old discussed her recent break-up from show winner Darvid Garayeli in January, and said the grief from the end of their relationship was incomparable to losing her sister earlier in the year.

Brooke – who made history as the world’s first bisexual and Indigenous Bachelorette – revealed in August that her sister Ky had tragically died after she wrapped up filming the match-making show.

Speaking in her video on Sunday, Brooke said: ‘In 2021, I started it the best I could have been, and I just want to go back to that. I loved who I was.

‘And not that I’ve changed, I think I’m just hurting. I still can’t even say my sister’s name without crying and I don’t think a break-up can really even compare to losing a sibling, if I’m honest.

‘I grieved the break-up much quicker than I grieved my sister. But I am really excited for finding all the different cultural and meditative practices that you can do and practice to heal, and to become a better version of yourself.’

Devastated: 'I think I'm just hurting. I still can't even say my sister's name without crying and I don't think a break-up can really even compare to losing a sibling if I'm honest,' she said in the raw footage

Darvid announced his split from Brooke on January 2, just one month after their season of The Bachelorette finished airing.

Following his break-up announcement, Brooke said she was ‘surprised’ he had decided to publicly share the news without consulting her.

‘Hey beautiful people before my phone blows up. I just want to sa y right now I’m finding this really quite overwhelming and just as surprising to me as you guys,’ Brooke said.

‘I just woke up to the news. It was definitely agreed to part ways. I just wanted to do it privately, amicably and respectfully.

‘This is not how and what I expected to be doing right now so as you can imagine, this is all a lot.’

She added: ‘You will all have your judgements and have your say but there is a lot going on in my world and D’s of course. So I again just ask you be kind, we are human.
